Luke Combs’ wife Nicole says baby is ‘thriving’ – that hair!
It’s only been a few weeks since Luke Combs and his wife Nicole Hocking Combs became parents for the first time, and as parents know, there’s little time left for anything when that bundle of joy arrives. However, Nicole took a moment to hop on social media to share an update from the world on Baby Tex.
“I’ve been super MIA lately just trying to figure out life. It’s pretty crazy how quickly your priorities change once you have a kid,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories with a laughing emoji. “The animals have adapted perfectly, besides wanting all his toys and things for themselves lol.”
“We can’t thank you enough for all your well wishes and congratulations! It’s been a whirlwind but we’re surviving and bb Tex is thriving,” she adds.
She also kindly shared a photo – although we can’t see Tex’s face, we can see he has a full head of chocolate brown hair. As he’s cradled in someone’s loving hands, the family’s cat, Wix, stands nearby with a look on his face that says “don’t you dare come near that baby.”
“Wix is the super protective big sister,” Nicole wrote next to the furry security guard.
The Combs – who wed in August 2020 – became a family of three on Sunday, June 19, which was Father’s Day this year. The new parents shared the news a few days later on Instagram, each posting the same family photo taken at Tex’s nursery.
The “Doin’ This” singer has made it clear he wants to be as much and as long as possible for his son.
“I don’t want to be a dad who isn’t there or the dad you see on TV and say, ‘Oh, that’s my dad and that’s where he is today I guess’ “, he shared in February. “Family is important to me. I would like to be the guy who throws the ball to them.”
In order to be there for Tex, Combs agrees to take care of him. In an interview with Apple Music, he talked about his weight issues and how difficult it was for him to lose weight in the past.
“It’s not that I don’t gnaw at myself, because I gnaw at myself”, he admits, “I’m not trying to say that it’s not my fault because it’s in many ways But also, I’ve gotten to this point where I’m like, ‘Man, I’d really like to lose weight,’ and it’s so hard for me to do that.”
The star adds, “Now having a kid has really turned my head around in the best way. I want to be here.”
