Chris Janson is a dad again. The “Better I Don’t” singer, one of country’s most magnetic young live performers, and his wife, Kelly, welcomed son Jesse Bo Janson on Wednesday, March 19. Weighing 6 pounds, 9 ounces and measuring 18 inches, the little guy arrived two weeks early, but he and his mother are both doing fine.

“We wanted a boy and now we have one,” Chris tells Country Weekly, proudly adding, “If he weren’t a cute baby, I'd admit it, but Jesse Bo is a cute baby!”

Jesse Bo joins 2-year-old big sister Georgia, Chris and Kelly’s other child, and two older step-siblings, son Graham and daughter Chel, whom Chris likes to refer to as his “bonus kids.”

“Kids are the greatest blessing in the world,” Chris says. “You can’t understand the love of being a parent until you are one.”

The Missouri singer/songwriter, who penned the hit “Truck Yeah” for Tim McGraw, recently released a new EP, Take It to the Bank, which features the title track lead single.

Country Weekly congratulates Chris and Kelly on their good news!
