Brantley Gilbert, Wife Amber Welcome Baby Boy!
Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber are officially parents! The couple welcomed their new baby boy to the world on Saturday (Nov. 11).
Barrett Hardy-Clay Gilbert was born at 1:37PM on Saturday, at Piedmont Hospital in Athens, Ga., People reports. He was born weighing 6 lbs., 7 oz., and measuring 20 inches long.
“Honestly, I’m just speechless. Watching the delivery, I don’t even know what to say," Gilbert tells the magazine. "Amber and I are just so thankful and blessed to have this beautiful little boy.”

Baby Barrett was due on Nov. 17, so he arrived a little bit sooner than expected. According to People, it was a relatively quick delivery, too.
"It was really fast: Amber woke up, had a little pain. And the nurse said, ‘You’re ready.’ It was 30 minutes, and we had Barrett," Gilbert explains. "And I have no words beyond, it’s even more than I could’ve ever imagined.”
When it comes to Barrett's name, Gilbert explains that he and his wife have had it picked out "for a very, very long time;" they both knew they wanted a "B" name, and they both loved that name in particular. Barrett's hyphenated middle name, meanwhile, honors both sides of his family: Gilbert's PaPaw's middle name was Clay, while Hardy is a family name from Amber's father's side.
Gilbert and Amber announced their pregnancy in mid-May, opening up at that time about their struggle to conceive. They revealed Barrett's sex at a party in June.
