Russell Dickerson and his wife Kailey became parents this month with the birth of their first child, Remington Edward. Their baby boy was born on September 10, weighing 10 lbs., 4 oz and measuring 22.5 inches long. The proud parents are now sharing photos of their son for the first time with People.
"I've never been so proud of anything in my entire life, of Kailey and to be this little guy's dad," the country singer shared with the outlet. "Everyone said how life-changing it is ... and now I understand, it is."
In the new photos, the sweet baby boy is bundled up in a white outfit with a brown hat as Kailey kisses his head and Dickerson kisses his wife's forehead. Other photos, which can be seen here, show the couple taking turns holding their son as a family.
The "Love You Like I Used To" singer turned to Instagram to share one of the snapshots with his followers, explaining the meaning of their son's name. "Remington Edward Dickerson! He’s here! We can’t imagine a life before you and it’s only been a few days," he wrote in the caption. "Remington: settled, planted by the water."
Dickerson continued on to share the Bible verse, Jeremiah 17:7-8, which reads, "'Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.'"
"2020 might have seemed like a drought year but then Remington showed up," Dickerson added. "Bearing fruit in a year of drought CMON LORD 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼"
Kailey shared the same photo on her Instagram page as well alongside a sweet note to her baby boy.
It reads, "I pray you love like your dad and you dream dreams like your mom. I pray you play like your dad and have patience like your mom. I pray you see the best in people like your dad, and see the depths of people like your mom. I pray your heart is soft as you are clothed in strength. I pray you find favor with both God and man and that it would grow as you grow. I pray you have faith like a child and wisdom beyond your years. I pray passion for whatever God calls you to in this life and His peace to guide you. I pray you always know how desperately you were wanted and how loved you’ve always been. I pray the peace of God that transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind all the days of your life. Thank you Jesus for the gift of this life."
Dickerson and Kailey, who were married in May 2013, announced in April that they were expecting. Congrats to the sweet couple on the new addition to their family!
