Their children

The country star knew that Gale was special when he saw her interacting with his child from a previous relationship, 7 year old son Aadyn. Fun fact, Aadyn actually appears in Allen's music video for his Keith Urban cover, "Boy Gets a Truck."

In March 2020, the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Naomi Bettie Allen. The name Bettie was in honor of Allen's grandmother, which is definitely adorable. Their second child together is new addition, Zara James Allen, who joined the family in October 2021. The country star was excited to add another baby girl to their growing family he told People.
