The couple shared the exciting news along with the picture above on their Facebook page:

“We’re so excited to be able to share this monumental day with all of you. We’ve had many wonderful things happen to us but this absolutely tops them all. We want to thank you all for being there for us and our music and for all of your support during our pregnancy. We can’t wait to see you out on the road this year but until then. . .Please say hello and welcome to this big ol world, Rigney Cooper Thompson aka #coopert #cooperman #coopdeville #coopdog #sircoopsalot.”

The name “Rigney” holds a special place in Thompson Square’s heart as it’s the maiden name of Shawna Thompson’s grandmother.
