American Idol's Phillip Phillips, wife Hannah Blackwell welcome baby boy

Something to sing about! Phillip Phillips’ wife, Hannah Blackwell, gave birth to the couple’s first child, a baby boy, on Sunday, November 10.

“Sunday morning our little boy made a fast entrance into the world. I cried more than he did,” Phillips announced via Instagram on Thursday, November 14, with a photo of the newborn. “Hannah was an absolute rockstar in delivery and she has been such an amazing mom these last four days. I’m forever in love with this little kid. He’s changed me so much already.”

The crooner went on to say, “We can’t take our eyes off of him. He’s perfect. Our prayers were answered and this new journey has begun. Welcome, Patch Shepherd Phillips. @hgblackwell”

The American Idol season 11 winner, 29, announced in July that he and his longtime partner, 27, had a baby on the way. “Phillip and Hannah sittin’ in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G! First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in the baby carriage this fall!” the “Home” singer wrote on Instagram at the time.

In the reveal, the Georgia native and Blackwell smiled at the camera from the floor, alongside a “Gentleman” onesie and an ultrasound shot.

The pregnant star posted the same pic to her own account, writing, “We’ve been keeping a secret this year. New little guy coming in a few months.”

She and Phillips originally met while volunteering together as teenagers. The pair tied the knot in 2015 in Albany, Georgia, ten months after he popped the question. “My best Christmas surprise is happening,” he wrote on Facebook and Twitter following his December 2014 proposal. “We’re engaged y’all!”

Blackwell showed her engagement ring off on Instagram at the time, writing, “I’ve been dreaming of this for over 20 years. I’ve been dreaming of this guy for just that long. Overwhelmed with happiness.”

After Phillips won the show in 2012, he gushed to Ryan Seacrest about his then-girlfriend. “She is really excited for me and she’s helped me out a lot through this,” he told the American Idol host, 44. “Love her, love her to death.”

Phillipps honored Blackwell with a sweet social media shout-out on their third wedding anniversary in October 2018. “It’s been 3 years since we got hitched,” he captioned a photo of them singing. “I sure do love having you as my best friend, my inspiration and my lover. Thank you for saying, ‘I do,’ because if you didn’t that would have been pretty awkward. I love you.”

Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

All my fellow mommies that deal with MS or anything that causes them to have to make choices they didn’t necessarily want to.. this is for you. I’m having to stop breastfeeding soon so I can get back on meds. The truth is, the toll of two kids and a newborn lifestyle is not the easiest on me.. and I need some help. What sucks is that I live with a disease that makes decisions for me a lot , and with breastfeeding I took SUCH pride that I was able to do something really awesome with this body that I am constantly at war with. This little guys tummy is struggling with the formula, and I KNOW we will both be fine, but I’m emotionally having to deal with the guilt and sadness that is coming along with weaning us both off this magical time. Any advice from my fellow mommies on how this can be any easier ? Xxxxx
