Congratulations are in order for a former contestant of NBC’s singing competition, “The Voice.”
Rachael Lynn Woodward, better known as RaeLynn gave birth to her first child on September 8. The singer’s baby girl Daisy came into the world at 4:07 p.m., weighing 7 pounds and 7 ounces, according to RaeLynn’s Instagram post.
“These two are my world. I am beyond thankful for my husband and all the doctors, nurses and our amazing doula @mollyburg17 for helping us bring miss Daisy into the world,” RaeLynn captioned a photo of her husband Josh Davis holding baby Daisy.
RaeLynn Wrote a Song for Her Daughter
Shortly after learning she was pregnant, RaeLynn wrote a song for her baby girl. The country singer shared an Instagram clip of the song on Mother’s Day. “Wrote this when BB girl was 8 weeks in my belly,” RaeLynn wrote in the caption.
The song opens with the touching lyrics, “When I watched those two pink lines arrive that Wednesday afternoon, it went from me just being me to me being me and you.”
RaeLynn Has Type 1 Diabetes
“The Voice” alum was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a child. “The main worry I had was managing my diabetes while carrying a baby,” RaeLynn told People in May. “I’ve been so fortunate to have an amazing care team that has me on the best regimen. My diabetes and A1C has never been better than it is now.”
RaeLynn discussed her journey with diabetes in a 2018 interview with Healthline. “I was diagnosed when I was 12 years old and didn’t know much at the time what was going on. At first, I was sick and thought I had the flu…but I came to find out I was in DKA and my mom ended up rushing me to the hospital, where I was diagnosed. When you tell any 12-year-old they have to take a shot every day and poke their finger all the time… well, I thought my life was over. But luckily that wasn’t the case,” she said.
Who Is Raelynn’s Husband?
RaeLynn’s husband Josh Davis is a formal financial advisor. He decided to join the Army after marrying RaeLynn in 2016. “I haven’t talked to him (Davis) in three weeks, and I haven’t seen him in a month,” the singer told People in 2017 when her husband was away at basic training.
RaeLynn added that although the time apart was hard, she had no regrets in choosing David. “We’re just gonna make it work. I would rather not see Josh but once a year and be married to (him) than be married to anybody else,” she told the outlet.
The pair met at church in 2012. “Obviously I wasn’t focusing on Jesus that day — I was praying, like, ‘Who is that hottie over there? Hallelujah,” RaeLynn told People in 2020. RaeLynn’s mentor on “The Voice” Blake Shelton and his wife Gwen Stefani both attended RaeLynn’s wedding.
Davis also celebrated the birth of his baby girl on Instagram. “So happy you’re finally here baby girl! We love you! And also your mom was amazing yesterday❤️❤️,” he captioned the photo.
