The Oregon native also shared the name of her child and wrote:

“Dutton Walker Lane, born June 8th, 2021. Your dad and I can’t get enough of all 9 pounds of you.”

During their time apart, the pair connected over the phone and began a long-distance relationship.

The following year, the couple decided to move in together, also going public with their relationship. The 36-year-old songwriter proposed to Lauren Bushnell in June 2019 at her house.

Just four months after their engagement, the couple decided to tie the knot in a private ceremony.

The intimate marriage took place in October 2019 in the presence of close friends and family members. The pair have been inseparable ever since.

They are primarily adored by both Bachelor Nation and country music fans all across the globe.
