Season 17 “The Voice” winner Jake Hoot has a new title – father of two.
Hoot and his wife Brittney welcomed their first child last week, the couple revealed on Instagram on Sunday.
“Well we did a thang last week!” Hoot wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of his other daughter. He is also the father of Macy, his daughter from a previous relationship. “World, meet little Miss Madilyn Bri. We couldn’t be more in love 😍.”
Hoot added the hashtags #girldad #ladiesman #mybaby #ilovemygirls.
Madilyn Bri Hoot was born at 3:30 am on Sunday, July 24th. She weighed 7 lbs, 4 oz and was 18 ¾ long.
The mother also took to social media to gulp about her infant daughter.
“One week ago today I experienced the greatest miracle of my life!” she shared. “We welcomed our ‘Little Feet’ into the world and couldn’t be more in love with her. She is the most beautiful thing I have ever known. I never knew my ability to love someone could go so deep and so deep. Everyone meet our little angel. She is more than we ever dreamed of. We love you so much our little angel and can’t believe we will love you forever!”
The couple said they were expecting a baby in March, the same month they marked their first wedding anniversary. To celebrate the milestone, Jake and Brittney released their duet “Wherever Time Goes”.
Country music fans first met Hoot in 2019 when he joined Kelly Clarkson’s team on “The Voice.” He won fans over on the hit TV singing competition with covers of Lonestar, Reba McEntire, Brenda Lee, Jason Isbell, Trace Adkins and Rhett Akins.
Since winning the show, Hoot has released songs including “Better Off Without You” and his Kelly Clarkson duet “I Would’ve Loved You.”
