‘The Voice’ ‘s Jon Mullins and Wife Whitney Welcome Baby Girl Charlotte — See the Photos! – On average, The Voice alum Jon Mullins is getting about five hours of sleep each night, and it’s all Charlotte Rose Mullins’ fault. But he forgives her. Heck, his daughter is only 6 weeks old. “You never quite realize how insane and special and crazy having a child is until it happens to you,” Mullins, 35, tells PEOPLE of the arrival of 7 lb. daughter Charlotte on Wednesday, Sept. 21. “But I wouldn’t miss it for the world.” Granted, Charlotte’s arrival wasn’t without its challenges. With Mullins’ wife Whitney having been deemed “high risk” due to her ongoing battle with a traumatic brain injury that occurred back in 2016, Charlotte’s birth was surrounded by caution. Jon competed on The Voice season 18 as a member of Team Nick Jonas. He left the competition at the Knockouts. His backstory involved his wife’s traumatic brain injury after she slipped, fell and hit her head. She needed month and months of physical therapy afterward. – Read more at People.

  1. Praise from Shania Twain about Adam, a fellow judge on the Starstruck, and his rock singing! She and her husband also attended Adam’s last solo concert at the Hollywood Palladium 10/30.

    Exclusive: Shania Twain celebrates 25 years of Come On Over and new album Queen of Me-In your documentary, you admitted that you initially wanted to sing rock music. Was that just a phase in your life or can we expect a full-blown rock record in the future?

    I think I’ve already gone through my rock phase, I don’t know! I enjoyed singing at the top of my range. Rock singing is super hard. You need to have serious technique in order to do that night after night. Just ask Adam Lambert, who does it very well.

    Earlier you mentioned Adam Lambert. You’re joining him on the panel of ITV’s Starstruck – very excited for this. Why did you want to be part of this series?

    Well I love Adam Lambert. I’m a giant fan. I love him with Queen as well, but I’ll put his music on and warm up to it. I think he’s such a talent. I wanted to get to know him even better and the team on the show are fabulous. I love it here [in the UK]. I just like it here. So I thought, ‘I’m gonna do this.’ I had a lot of fun and the whole panel is so lovely. I really enjoyed it.

  2. I find it interesting a country singer is a giant Adam fan. Adam is a phenomenal vocalist, and I bet she became even a bigger fan after meeting him. I’ve heard so many stories from his friends that when he gets together with them, he wants to talk about them and never makes it about himself.

  3. Thank you…thank you. Enjoyed every min of it–every song, every story.

  4. His Hard Rock residency starts this upcoming week. Looks like he’s doing 3hr. sets at these shows…

    Plus he has a bunch of private events coming up too in between…

    Like that he said in that one interview he’s currently writing the followup album to The Beast Awakens. Hopefully we’ll get that sometime in 2023 maybe. I think the vinyl version of Cleanbreak is coming out next month too. I wonder if that one will have any bonus tracks on it?

  5. Adam also had some good words for Shania and her talent early on when she joined Startruck. It it special when accomplished acts recognize the talent of others in the same or a different genre. We recently saw that with Adam and Jhud on her show.

  6. Agree. And she never tried to present herself as the good moral girl next door who only transformed into a pretend vixen on stage. Along with talent, probably why she was able to become such a worldwide star and not viewed so closely to only county.

  7. Interesting that you called Shania a “country” singer, since she’s from Canada and when she started out she was kind of looked down on because her music didn’t really fit with country (at least that’s what the general tone was.) All that to say she’s not your average country singer from the southern US.

  8. Such nice compliments for Adam from Shania. She was at Adam’s Las Vegas concert on Saturday, 10/29. Beverley Knight, who was a Starstruck judge during season 1, was at the Hollywood Palladium on Sunday. She and her husband also attended his Halloween after-party.

    Also, noticed that Adam gained about 50k TikTok followers since his mini tour and his Halloween make-up tutorial has over 2.9 Million views.

    Looking forward to season 2 of Starstruck!

  9. Wtf on David on TMZ. He’s out on the road now and has a good social media presence. Also, he donated the man bun hair after that and dyed back to brown (My profile pic was taken in July for reference while that picture was taken in April)
