Country newcomer, Elvie Shane, and his wife, Mandi, welcomed their first daughter, Zaelyn, to the world last week and it didn’t take long for them to find out she inherited her Dad’s edgy side.
“No paternity test needed, she’s definitely mine y’all,” Elvie captioned a series of photos on Instagram that show baby Zaelyn with her middle finger straight in the air while wrapped in her Dad’s arms.
“Made the baby, I did good,” Elvie said on a recent video posted to his Instagram story, before praising his wife and other Moms for their strength.
“For all you women out there who have gave birth, God bless you. For all you women out there who are breast feeding or have breast fed, God bless you times ten! And for all you men out there, who have not witnessed either one of these things, you have no freaking clue!”
While Zaelyn’s delivery on July 20 in Kentucky was Elvie’s first experience with child birth, he seems to have taken it like a pro, telling fans he asked doctors if he could “catch” his daughter himself.
“They literally let me, like, deliver my daughter,” Elvie shared on Instagram. “They were like, ‘most men don’t even want to see what the hell’s going on down there’ [and] I was like ‘hell, y’all. Order some pizza and turn on the bluetooth speaker — we’ll make a party out of this!’”
Zaelyn is Elvie and Mandi’s first child together. She joins Elvie’s teenage stepson, who inspired his first single to Country radio, “My Boy,” detailing the powerful relationship they share.
Coincidentally, Zelyn’s arrival came along with the good news of “My Boy,” entering the top 15 on Country charts, which was reassurance for Elvie and Mandi, who struggled knowing the “right time” to grow their family.
"Our hearts are so full! Celebrating a top 15 single about 'our boy' and the birth of a beautiful, healthy, baby girl all in the same week is more than we could have ever hoped for," the couple told PEOPLE.
"We've spent nine years waiting for the perfect time to have a baby, only to realize there is no such thing as the perfect time," they continued. "We're feeling beyond blessed and thankful to give 'our boy' a sister and bring this gift from God into the world."
