Country music singer Big Kenny is the proud father of a newly-adopted baby boy.
The Big & Rich singer, real name Kenny Alphin, welcomed son Dakota Jefferson Holiday Alphin with his wife, Christiev, in July (10).
Dakota, now nine months old, is little brother to the couple's four-and-a-half-year-old son, Lincoln William.
Christiev confirmed the news to People.com on Friday (17Sep10), revealing they decided to adopt after failing to conceive a second child biologically.
She said: "Having Lincoln as an only child was wonderful but I come from a large family and I didn't want him alone. Even when Kenny and I were dating I asked him about adoption and he said absolutely, so our hearts and minds were open."
