Josh Turner Welcomes Third Son
Josh Turner and wife Jennifer have received an early Christmas gift! The couple welcomed their third son, Crawford Marion on Monday, December 13 at 8:52 PM. The new addition weighed in at 6 lbs., 15 oz. and measured 19 inches.
"Jennifer and I are overjoyed at Marion's arrival," the singer tells People. "He's a strong, handsome little boy with a resilient spirit. Thanks to all of our family, friends and fans for their thoughts and prayers."
Marion joins older brothers, Colby Lynch, 19 months, and Hampton Otis, 4.
Josh will no doubt be making room for Marion on board his tour bus in 2011. He told The Boot earlier this year that one of the things that makes being on the road enjoyable is that his family travels with him. His wife Jennifer is the keyboard player and sings backup in his band, and now that they have sons Hampton and Colby, the entire family lives on the bus when the singer is on tour.
"We couldn't leave them behind," says Josh, "so we adjusted as we went along. It works out real good, because when we are out there on stage, she has a job and I have a job. Then on the bus we both have jobs to do. We work as a team, but we're best friends and co-workers. And we know when that time comes when we need to take a break from each other, and we know when the opposite is true. It's been a learning experience, but we are better together."
Josh certainly has plenty to be thankful for this year. Along with a new son, Josh scored two No. 1 singles, 'All Over Me,' and 'Why Don't We Just Dance,' with the latter becoming Country Aircheck's most-heard song of 2010.
