Come February, country swooner Justin Moore and his wife will be celebrating the birth of their first child. The couple found out that they are expecting a baby girl in the new year that they plan on naming Ella Cole. What an adorable name!

Justin told a source that Kate was the decision maker for the little girl’s first name, while Justin won the bid for the middle name choosing Cole because it is Justin’s middle name. What a great way to compromise!

Justin was giddy to share the exciting news, “Just found out I’m adding to my personal family. My wife and I are … really excited about that. I have a feeling that family is just going to get more and more important to me.”

Now while it is rare that a technician gets the gender on a sonogram incorrect, Justin shared his uncertainty and hopes for a boy as he kept asking the tech at the hospital, “Are you positive it’s a girl? Is it still a girl?” But we think he will be a fine daddy to a daughter. Justin adds, “I’m not excited about killing a 14-year-old boy in a few years for looking at her, but it’ll be fun.”

Congratulations to Justin Moore and his wife Kate on the pregnancy!
