Luke Combs and his wife, Nicole, have been “over the moon” since welcoming their firstborn child last month. Tex Lawrence Combs made his arrival on Father’s Day (June 19), and the award-winning country music superstar proudly announced at the time: “Mama and baby are healthy and we’re back home now with family. Life is good. Everyone welcome Tex Lawrence Combs to the world!”
The new parents opted not to reveal their son’s name before his birth, and now, fans couldn’t resist asking: How did Luke and Nicole decide on the name Tex Lawrence?
During her pregnancy, Nicole shared on her Instagram story that they had selected “a family name but also pretty unique I think.” She explained while answering a few questions on her Instagram story on Wednesday afternoon (July 6) that Tex is “Luke’s great uncle’s name” and Lawrence “my dad’s name.” Tex weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces at birth (born one day before his due date), and took after both of his parents with a full head of hair, Nicole shared.
Nicole posted a precious photo with Tex earlier in the day, savoring the sweet moments with her newborn son. Luke released his highly-anticipated new album days after welcoming his son, and celebrated with a thankful tweet the night before: “I’ve got a beautiful, healthy baby boy, an amazing wife, a good dog, good friends, good family, and the best fans. I’m having a whiskey by myself to celebrate and process it all. Life is good. Cheers!”
