Bucky Covington and Fiancee Welcome Baby Girl
It’s a girl for Bucky Covington! The ‘American Idol’ star and fiancee Katherine Cook welcomed their bundle of joy on Friday (Oct. 10).
Kennedy Taylor Covington is the first child for the couple, and appropriately, she was born to a country singing dad and country publicist mom right in Music City. She measured 18 in., weighing 6 lb. 12 oz. at birth.
Kennedy and mom are both happy and healthy.
“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,” Covington tells 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!”
Covington met his Cook back in 2007 and then popped the question three years later in 2010. They announced the pregnancy earlier this year. They’ve been engaged for a while and probably dreamed about one day having children, but Covington was still confused upon seeing not one, but three positive pregnancy tests. He didn’t even know what they were!
“The only problem was I didn’t know what they were! I was like, ‘What is this? Are you okay?’” he said previously. “So she told me and I got so excited!”
Congratulations to the happy couple on their beautiful new baby girl!
