Tyler Hubbard and wife Hayley are having a boy. They were in Africa when Tyler found out.
According to People, the exciting reveal took place on March 4, during a trip to Africa that the Hubbards took with their daughter Olivia “Liv” Rose, as well as bandmate Brian Kelley and his wife Brittney.
In order to plan the big reveal, Hayley turned to Brittney for help — who found out the baby’s sex before going abroad and kept the news from her husband, who also wanted to be surprised.
When the group all made a visit to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, which is known for its elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation programs, Brittney gave a blue scarf to an elephant keeper upon their arrival.
Hayley tells People, “Africa has become our second home, and we really wanted to do the reveal with the elephants at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. We’re in awe of the inspiring work they do to rescue, protect and preserve these magical creatures. The elephants really speak to us, and this is a cause that we are very passionate about.”
She added, “We were pretty surprised to find out we’re expecting, but having three children is something Tyler and I have always dreamed of. God’s timing is perfect!”
Hayley posted to Instagram, “It’s a….. BOY! This was such fun news to find out amidst the craziness of everything that’s going on in the world and in our hometown. And such a fun way to find out @sheldricktrust. Thanks @brittneykelley for keeping the surprise and planning this fun reveal at one of our favorite places in the world!”
