On Aug. 15, Luke Combs and wife Nicole welcomed their second baby boy into the world, the couple announced Thursday (Aug. 31).
“8.15.2023 – Beau Lee Combs,” the country star and his wife captioned a co-post on Instagram. “Welcome to the world. We couldn’t love you more.”
In the Instagram video — soundtracked by Cory Asbury’s 2023 ballad “These Are the Days” — a pacifier and an infant’s hospital hat are laid out on a cream-colored blanket, joined by a developing Polaroid picture with “Beau Combs” and a heart written on it in Sharpie. As the video progresses, a picture of baby Beau comes into view.
Beau joins his older brother, 1-year-old Tex, who was born last summer, on June 19, 2022.
Combs announced the news of his second baby back in March, writing on Instagram: “Joining the 2 under 2 club! Baby boy #2 coming this September!!” — so it sounds like Beau came a couple of weeks early. He also took the opportunity to introduce the then-new song “Take You With Me” a few days before releasing his latest album, Gettin’ Older, which arrived on March 24. The sweet song addresses fatherhood and how quickly time passes. “I got a young’un of my own/ He’s too young to understand it/ When he gets a little older watching the stage where I’m standing/ He’ll know it’s about him when I sing I take you with me,” he sings.
Another song from Gettin’ Older, Combs’ cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” has become one of the biggest hits of his career, so far peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spending five weeks at No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart.
