Brantley Gilbert and Wife Amber Welcome Baby Boy
The devil don't sleep ... and, likely, Brantley Gilbert is going to find himself in the same position. However, his sleeplessness is going to be for a happy reason: People reports that the 32-year-old musician and his wife are brand-new parents to a baby boy!
Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert, was born Saturday Nov. 11, at 1:37PM at Piedmont Hospital in Athens, Georgia. People notes it was a "fairly quick labor" which had its onset earlier than the couple expected.
The little man weighs in at 6 lbs., 7 oz. and measures 20 inches in length. His first name is a personal favorite of the couple's, and his middle name was taken from both sides of the family. Hardy comes from Amber’s father’s side, while Clay was Gilbert's late grandfather's name.

“Honestly, I’m just speechless,” Gilbert said. “Watching the delivery, I don’t even know what to say. Amber and I are just so thankful and blessed to have this beautiful little boy.”
This is the first child for both parents, and the couple is especially thrilled over his birth due to a long struggle with infertility. After marrying in June 2015, the pair tried for nearly two years to conceive.
Needless to say, when their prayers were finally answered, Gilbert found himself feeling extra tender over the pregnancy. "I’m a little bit emotional about this stuff right now. I can’t look at an ultrasound picture without crying," he admitted in July in an interview with his label, BMLG. "Only about that, that’s it. That is literally the one thing that may get a tear out of my eyes is this baby, man."
