Chris Lane and Lauren Bushnell Lane are parents!
The couple welcomed their first child, son Dutton Walker Lan this past Tuesday, June 8, in Nashville, Tennessee.
Born at 11:12 a.m., Dutton weighed in at 9 lbs. and measured 19.5 inches long.
“Everyone in the room, including Lauren and me, were shocked we had a 9-pound baby! Not sure where he was hiding in her belly?!” Lane, 36, joked. “Watching Lauren go through the birthing process – from the beginning to the moment she delivered – was the most incredible thing I’ve ever witnessed. I experienced an emotion I’ve never felt before.”
Lauren, 31, adds: “I’ve never felt an immediate unconditional love like I now have for Dutton. And going through this experience with Chris has made me love and appreciate him even more … I didn’t think that was possible!”
“I’ve been waiting to meet Dutton for nine months now, and the easiest way for me personally to describe my feelings and emotions is to write about it! So naturally, I wrote a song,” he shared in a recent interview.
“It’s called ‘Ain’t Even Met You Yet’ and sums up how I’ve been feeling over the last few months. I can’t wait to share it with him one day.”
The couple revealed their pregnancy news in December by posting a video of an ultrasound of their baby to Instagram.” It was very exciting but now feels even more real seeing the ultrasound and hearing the heartbeat,” she exclusively told PEOPLE of the news at the time. “We are just soaking it all in!”
Lauren has been documented her pregnancy journey on Instagram, posting plenty of baby bumps and talking about not comparing her progress to other moms.
“Pregnancy is amazing! Reminder to not compare yourself to others,” Lauren captioned an Instagram post in February. “This is my belly but everyone’s looks different! I have compared myself to friends who are about as far along as me or have been pregnant before and worried that maybe my belly or baby was too big for my gestation and for it being my first.”
“But I have to remind myself everyone is different. Everyone’s bodies are different and every baby is different but all are so beautiful!” Lauren added.
