Emery Farryn Abbot, newborn daughter of Josh Abbot and his girlfriend Taylor Parnell, is one lucky duck. Not only does her name mean “brave adventure," but she's being serenaded by her country star father!
Most recently, Abbot sang a cover of “You Are So Beautiful" to his smiling and joyous baby. Before diving in to the song, in just about the sweetest baby talk you will ever see from a grown man, Abbot says to his new daughter, “You changed my whole life. What do you think you're doing? Do you think you can just come into my whole life and change it?"
The heartwarming moment continues with Abbot singing “you are so beautiful / to me / can't you see / you're everything I hope for / you're everything I need / you are so beautiful / to me!"
Needless to say, fans went nuts! Everyone started showing their love and best wishes to the couple on their romantic parenting journey.
And this wasn't the first time Abbot has crooned for his little daughter.
Abbot and Parnell welcomed Emery into the world at 12:50 AM on Friday, May 5, 2017 in Austin, Texas. Just three days later, at her pediatrician appointment, Josh started writing an original lullaby for his new blessing. It's not unheard of for country stars to sing to their newborns, but to compose an original lullaby just three days after the birth of his daughter? That may be record time, Josh Abbot.
In that moment, Abbot cradled Emery in his arms, rocking her back and forth while singing, “You got my little blue eyes / you got your mama's little nose /and a little bitty closet / and its full of pink clothes. You got a head full of hair / and some little bitty ears / and you'll sing the lows / and I'll take the lows / and we'll sing together for years / there's no need for tears!"
