Bucky Covington and his fiancée, Katharine Cook, welcomed their first child today (Oct 10) in Nashville, reports People magazine.
The American Idol season 5 alum welcomed his baby daughter, Kennedy Taylor Covington, born weighing 6 lbs., 12 oz., and measured 18 inches long.
Both the new mom and baby “are doing well and resting comfortably following this morning’s delivery,” Bucky’s rep said in a statement, adding the “first-time father is ecstatic” over the birth of his baby girl.
“We are beyond excited to start our life as a family and can’t wait to see what adventures this little blessing has in store for us,” the proud new dad told People.
“The nursery is done, the bags were packed and I Googled how to get to the hospital. This parenthood thing is pretty easy so far!”
Bucky and Katharine were engaged in 2010, and the couple announced the pregnancy in February. Admittedly, Bucky was still clueless he was going to be a father, even after the mom-to-be presented three positive tests.
“The only problem was I didn’t know what they were! I was like, ‘What is this? Are you okay?’” Bucky said at the time. “So she told me and I got so excited!”
