Dan + Shay singer Shay Mooney and his fiance Hannah Billingsley welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday afternoon. It’s the first child for the 25-year-old and his fiance.

“It’s hard to describe the love you feel for the first time when you hold your child,” Mooney writes on Instagram beneath the first picture of the couple and their baby. “I will never be the same. Asher James, I promise to be the father you deserve. And Hannah, I promise to be the husband you want and need. I love you both so much. You’ve given me everything I never knew I needed. Welcome to the world Asher James Mooney. 1/24/2017″

The couple got engaged in August, revealed they were expecting a baby in October and shared that they were having a boy shortly after Christmas. Both have shared photos from the nine month journey, Billingsley has been especially candid on her Instagram page. It’s there the couple shared why they chose the name Asher.

Asher – A name meaning fortunate; blessed; happy one.. @shaymooney and I are all of those things and more,” Billingsley wrote next to a similar shot. “God has truly honored us with the privilege of being the parents of this sweet boy.


Meanwhile Mooney’s bandmate Dan Smyers is also planning to get married having gotten engaged to longtime girlfriend Abby Law in November. The duo is off the road until a tour stop in Iowa on Feb. 12.
