Scotty McCreery And Wife Welcome Son ‘Avery’

Congratulations to Scotty McCreery and his wife, Gabi, on the birth of their first child, son Merrick Avery McCreery. He was born in the early hours of Monday (October 24th) morning in Raleigh, NC. The baby was named after Gabi’s father, Merrick (Tre) Dugal III, and will be called Avery.

Scotty said, “Next to his mother, he is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. We have been waiting and preparing all year, and now we are so excited to have our little man here with us. We have begun a grand new adventure that will continue for the rest of our lives.”

Scotty shared a few pictures of his new son on social media yesterday (Tuesday, October 25th) writing, “Never known a love like this. Merrick ‘Avery’ McCreery joined us 11 days early on October 24th at 4:34am! 7 lbs 13oz of nothin but love”

The singer is on what he calls “paternity leave” from the road until his November 30th show in Las Vegas, NV at the Downtown Hoedown on Fremont Street.

Scotty’s new single, “It Matters to Her,” is making its climb up the country charts.
