Josh Abbott, the frontman of Josh Abbott Band and his girlfriend, Taylor Parnell, welcomed a sweet baby girl earlier today.
Emery Farryn Abbott was born on Friday, May 5, around 1 a.m. in Austin, Texas. The adorable new bundle of joy weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz., and measured 19 inches long.
The unique name means “brave adventure,” and was chosen for a very special reason.
“We wanted to do something similar with a girl name to how my brother named his daughter Eisley Dawn, which means ‘Cheerful Beginnings’…The word ‘brave’ is a word I used to describe Taylor in a song I wrote for her, ‘I’m Your Only Flaw,’ on the new album coming out this year,’ Abbott said in a statement.
Abbott and Parnell announced their pregnancy earlier this year with an adorable Instagram post. The announcement came shortly after Abbott surprised his mother by bringing her as his date on for the 2017 ACM Awards. You can see Josh surprise his mom with the news in an adorable video right here.
Congrats to the happy couple on their exciting new addition!
