Jason Aldean’s pack is getting a little bit bigger. The country singer is currently expecting his second child with his wife, former NBA cheerleader and American Idol contestant Brittany (Kerr) Aldean. The two welcomed a son, Memphis, last December and announced they were expecting again in July.
It’ll be the fourth time Jason becomes a daddy. He has two daughters from his previous marriage to ex-wife Jessica Ussery.
Jason and Brittany’s loved ones celebrated the upcoming arrival with a baby sprinkle (a baby shower for a second baby) for the expectant couple. It was during that baby sprinkle that Brittany and Jason revealed the name they picked out for their little girl.
In a video posted to Brittany’s Instagram, Jason’s daughters, 15-year-old Keeley and 11-year-old Kendyl, revealed their little sister’s name will be Navy Rome. While we’re not sure exactly when little Navy will be sailing into everyone’s hearts, scenes from the baby sprinkle make it clear she’ll be welcomed with lots of love.

Jason and Brittany tied the knot in 2015. There were still a lot of people who badmouthed the relationship, but Jason was content in knowing he made the right decision for himself.
They knew they wanted to start a family together immediately, but it wasn’t as easy as they’d hoped. After struggling to get pregnant for a year and a half, the couple turned to IVF to conceive Memphis.
“The IVF was probably harder than the actual pregnancy, for me, because it was just such a roller coaster and so difficult,” Brittany revealed in a sit-down with People. “It’s such high highs and such low lows, and no one really knows that you’re going through it all so you have to just put on a game face and pretend that you’re not giving yourself shots in your stomach every day, all day.”
The process proved worth it for the couple, who announced they were pregnant in May 2017.
Brittany was 30 weeks pregnant with Memphis when a gunman opened fire during Jason’s set at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas. The couple wasn’t together when…
