Singer-songwriter Joss Stone announced in April that she and her husband, Cody DaLuz, were expecting their second child. Today, the “Right To Be Wrong” singer revealed on an Instagram Live that her newborn has arrived.
“He’s finally here. Just wanted to say hi with our newest addition to the family.” Joss and Cody welcomed their baby boy on October 18th and chose to name him Shackleton Stoker Daluz. “What a joy to have him safe and sound in our arms,” she added in her caption. “Thanks for hanging with us through the journey.”
Joss shared that even though she decided to have a natural birth, it didn’t go that way. She labored for 32 hours before her son was born via c-section. Joss explained that her uterus split, which happens to a small percentage of pregnant mothers and then had a few scary minutes before giving birth. “The doctors at Vanderbilt saved my life and saved his life,” she shared.
Joss, who recently came out with holiday album called Merry Christmas Love, and Cody welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Violet in January 2021. In October of that same year, Joss suffered a miscarriage, which she shared when announcing she was pregnant with Shackleton. “Last year, in October, I lost a baby. It was really horrible because it was my baby, and I know that a lot of women go through that. It was just hard.” Later in the video, she announced her pregnancy, “There are rainbows after storms.”
Congratulations to Joss and Cody on the arrival of their baby boy! We wish them lots of love as they welcomed Shackleton into their family.
