Josh Abbott Is Engaged!
Josh Abbott and his girlfriend, Taylor Parnell, are engaged! The Josh Abbott Band frontman revealed on Thursday (July 20) that he popped the question to Parnell ... with a little help from their newborn daughter.
On Thursday, Abbott shared a gallery of three photos on Instagram, showing how he proposed: He dressed his and Parnell's baby girl, Emery Farryn Abbott, in a onesie that says "Mommy, will you marry Daddy?" and perched the ring box next to her as she laid on a giant teddy bear. The gallery's other two photos show the smiling couple celebrating their engagement and a close-up of baby Emery in the special onesie ... and Parnell's beautiful new ring.
Abbott and Parnell welcomed Emery into their family on May 5, after announcing her pregnancy on Easter Sunday (April 15). The couple's marriage will be Abbott's second: He and his now-ex-wife Amanda got divorced in 2014, after the singer-songwriter publicly admitted to infidelity and alcohol abuse via social media. The couple had been married since 2010.
“This album is about appreciating the moment and your family and your friends, and living life the right way,” Abbott says. “It’s really all about finding clarity and focusing on what’s important.”
