Morgan Wallen Talks Son Indigo Wilder, Co-Parenting With KT Smith, & What He Enjoys Most About Being A Dad

Morgan Wallen shared more information about his nearly two-year-old son Indigo Wilder Wallen’s first concert at this year’s Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 15).

Indigo attended his first concert back in March and he saw none other than his dad, Wallen. Indigo Wilder, whose nickname is “Indie,” attended his dad’s Nashville stop on the sold-out Dangerous tour, which is in support of Wallen’s double album of the same name. Indie attended the concert alongside his mom, KT Smith, his grandparents, Lesli & Tommy, and his aunts, Mikaela and Ashlyne Wallen.

Wallen talked about his show being his son’s first concert with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet ahead of the awards show on Sunday (May 15).

“It was special, you know, I kind of dressed him like me and everything. We did the whole little shebang,” Wallen shared. “It was awesome, he got to spend it in the suite with my family and some other people. I think Jason Aldean was in there, so, he was in some pretty good company for his first concert,” he added.

 

Smith shared photos of she and Wallen’s son at the time on social media, writing, “may or may not have cried seeing little man’s watch his daddy for his first ever concert, also surrounded by love from family” before adding a 🤍 emoji.

Included in the series of photos Smith shared were a few shots of her and her son in the suite-level of the stadium as well as a photo of Indie sleeping while wearing a pair of noise-canceling headphones.

Morgan Wallen Also Opened Up About What He Enjoys Most About Being A Dad & Co-Parenting With KT Smith

During the interview with Entertainment Tonight, Wallen also shared what he enjoys most about being a dad.

“I think seeing him get a personality,” Wallen said. “He’s starting to get where I tell him no and he just kind of looks at me… I know it’s about to get worse, but I like it.”

In addition, Wallen said that he’s preparing to plan his son Indie’s 2nd birthday party “in a few weeks” and that co-parenting with his mom, Smith is going very well.

“[Co-parenting is] good, I got no complaints,” Wallen said. “I was worried about it at first, but I feel very comfortable with it and I’m really proud of the way me and his mom handle it,” he continued.

During the interview alongside his mother Lesli, Wallen also credited his son as being his saving grace in getting him through the scandal where he was caught using a racial slur on camera.

In reflecting on his growth over the last year, Wallen said, “I think mostly I can attribute it to being a dad, you know, just seeing that I have another life that I’m responsible for. It kind of put things into perspective for me, so I didn’t really have a choice.”

Wallen also won the award for Top Country Male Artist at Sunday’s award show. He also performed his songs, “Don’t Think Jesus” and “Wasted On You.”

Wallen’s son Indie will turn two on July 10, 2022.
