Granger and Amber Smith welcomed their fourth child together, son Maverick Beckham Smith.
“He’s here! Wow…so many emotions,” Granger captioned her post to Instagram on Friday, August 20, sharing a photo of Amber and their newborn son in the hospital.
“Maverick Beckham Smith made his debut today,” he added. “He and @amberemilysmith are doing great”
The couple named their newborn after their late son River Kelly, who died at the age of 3 after an accidental drowning at their Texas home in June 2019.
Granger, 41, and Amber, 39, are also parents to son Lincoln, 7, and daughter London, 9.
In May, the singer and his wife revealed the name of their baby on their YouTube channel. In the clip, the pair shared how the name would honor their late son, River.
“I really wanted Riv to be in the name, whatever name we picked, I wanted Riv to be a part of that name. We went back and forth – should we do middle name Kelly? Or should we do middle name River?” Amber explained. “I wanted this baby to have his own identity, and I didn’t want him to be so tied to River. But I did want him to have a little piece of his brother in his name.”
“And Beckham, his middle name, essentially means ‘home by the river.’ So Maverick Beckham Smith is the newest Smith, coming with a vengeance, kicking like crazy!”
Back in March of 2021, the two announced they were expecting their fourth child.
“We’re pregnant. I don’t have many words for this video. Life isn’t perfect. Sometimes it’s beat up and broken but it’s NEVER hopeless. God promises that,” Smith, 41, captioned a video. “Our story isn’t finished yet, and neither is yours! Through our suffering and joy, God’s glory radiates through it all! A new Smith boy is dude in August ????????”
“God has made a way we never thought possible. If I’ve learned anything over the last two years, it’s that I do not have as much control as I think I do,” Amber captioned her own post along with a few Bible verses.
“Never did I think at 39 I would be blessed with expecting another baby boy. These past couple of years have been so rough but also so full of so much joy, hope, healing, growing and grace from God. Lord, I pray that our story can speak life to someone else who may be suffering to never give up hope. To surrender their burdens to you. To trust you even when it hurts.”
