Justin Moore, Wife Expecting Fourth Child
Justin Moore and his wife Kate are expecting their fourth child.
The country singer turned to Instagram to share the exciting news on Thursday (Jan. 19).
"Kate and I would like to let all of you know that we will be adding to our family, once again," he writes on Instagram. "No more dogs, thankfully! Haha. We are thrilled to announce that we will be having our fourth child in June. To have the opportunity to become parents again, is such a blessing and one we are so thankful to God for. We pray for a healthy baby boy or girl. Our three daughters are super excited, as are we."
The couple married in 2007, and they welcomed their first child, Ella Kole, in 2010, followed by Kennedy Faye in 2011 and Rebecca Klein in 2014. The family have been expanding so rapidly that they recently built a new house in Moore's tiny hometown of Poyen, Ark., to contain their existing brood. In an interview with Taste of Country in 2016, Moore admitted that they took having another child into account before they built.

“My wife wants a boy so bad she can’t stand it,” he said with a laugh. “I’m the exact opposite. There was probably a window of time where I thought I was missing out on something by not having a boy, but that gap has quickly closed … I don’t know, we’ll see what happens down the road. My wife usually wins most battles in our home, so she’ll probably win this one.”
He also joked that the house will ensure a degree of career longevity for the singer, who released his fourth studio album, Kinda Don't Care, in 2016. His current single from the album is "Somebody Else Will."
“I told my wife, ‘Do whatever you want, ’cause I’m not building another one. You’d better get this one the way you want it.’ So she took that to the extreme, and this house will ensure the fact that I will never be able to retire as long as I live," he said with a deep breath. “I’m gonna be here for a while! I’ll be playing casinos at 85 years old.”
