Well if seeing Evan back on stage wasn’t enough to warm your heart, how about this?
Announced today, Evan and Staci Felker have welcomed their first child into the world, a beautiful baby girl named Evangelina Hartford Felker.
Staci broke the news on Instagram this morning, earning congratulatory comments from Jamie Lin Wilson, Josh Abbott, American Aquarium, Paul Cauthen, and more. The post also serves as Evan’s official welcome back to Instagram.
“Y’all welcome my husband Evan Felker back to my grid after a few years off.
He’s here to introduce our first born… Evangelina Hartford Felker.”
You gotta love it.
Of course, it’s pretty well known that Evan and Staci went through a very difficult, very public separation back in 2018 after Felker began a relationship with Miranda Lambert. The fling was short-lived, but the two ultimately divorced. And then in 2019, after a string of canceled shows, Turnpike Troubadours announced their hiatus.
Flash forward to today, Evan and Staci have reconciled their relationship, Evan is sober and thinking about music again, he recently performed a few songs at a benefit concert, and now, has welcomed a baby girl.
