Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland and husband Justin Miller welcome their first child, a baby boy, on Thursday (Dec. 6). The baby’s name is Magnus Hamilton Miller. “We are so thankful for all the prayers and support and are excited to take some time together as a new family,” proud mom Jen says in a statement.
Nettles and her entrepreneur husband were married over Thanksgiving weekend last year in an intimate ceremony in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.
Jennifer will take a break now that the baby is born, but have no fear Sugarland fans, the duo is not calling it quits. “Jennifer and I are not finished making records. We know that,” says Kristian Bush who has two kids with his wife, Jill. “We’re excited and this a great time to take a little bit of a breather because she’s got to figure out being a mom. We’ve been on the road for a very long time, so there’s no reason we shouldn’t take a little time off. You’ve got to give people space to be a parent. I’m a parent and I know what kind of adjustment that has been for me. I love her more than anything in the world, and I will do whatever it takes to make sure her life adjusts so she can become the best possible mom she can be.”
The 38-year-old Sugarland leadsinger announced her pregnancy in June. At the time, she said she was expecting in November.
Congratulations to Jennifer and Justin on their new bundle of joy!
