Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles Introduces Son
Country music artists and fans alike were breathless with anticipation awaiting the arrival of Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles' first "sugarbaby" late last year. Her tummy was given as much (perhaps more) attention as her red carpet wear at both the CMA Awards and the CMA Country Christmas television special, which she hosted just weeks before her projected delivery date.
Delivery date, schmelivery date. Baby Magnus blew past the projected day, only allowing anticipation to build even further. And after he finally arrived on Dec. 6, Jennifer and Magnus retreated to their home to begin the process of becoming a family, but leaving fans anxious to know more about the little nugget.
Well, the wait is over. Jennifer has released the first official photo of Magnus on her website. And the beautiful blue-eyed tyke looks strikingly like his mama. In addition to the picture, Jennifer shares some insight into what the past few months have been like for her:
I have been enjoying snuggling and feeding and learning. Big time. About myself.
For example, I am really good at following directions. If you give me a recipe I will follow it exactly and expect the predicted results, or else I'm trading it in. These good student proclivities have served me well in different aspects of my life and career. Spoiler alert! The sh-t does not work this way with babies. You can read every book and website (I've read them all), and listen to the well meaning advice of family and friends, on how to get your baby to, for example, sleep more or through the night. But guess what? This stuff is not one size fits all. Anyone who tells you it is, lies. The best advice I've gotten was, of course, from my mother who told me to remind myself "this works SOMETIMES!" And don't get me started on sleep deprivation.
Congratulations to Jennifer and her husband, Justin Miller. And congratulations to Magnus for landing in an amazing home.
