In her announcement post, Brittany wrote, “Our lives changed forever in the absolute best way possible. We have never been more in love. He is the most precious gift and I am so blessed to be his Mommy. 💙 We are soooooo so happy, he is a dream come true!!”

In his post, Jax reflected on what it has been like to become a father. “I’ve never in my life thought it was going to be like this.. it’s 10000 times better. Dad mode just kicks in. I don’t think I have ever been as happy as I am right now, everything else in life seems so insignificant now. I am crying just writing this message. I have the most beautiful son a man could ask for, he’s an absolute blessing from god. I just want to say how absolutely amazing my wife has been through this whole process, it has not been an easy pregnancy for her but she did an absolute amazing job all the way till the end. I have always been in awwh of Brittany but I fell in love with her all over again. She is our families rock. We are so in love.”

The couple announced in September of last year that they were expecting their first child. The news came just a few months after celebrating their first wedding anniversary in June 2020.

Congratulations to Brittany and Jax on becoming parents! We hope they enjoy this exciting new journey.
