Look what the blizzard of ’16 blew in. It’s a brand new baby Thompson!

Thompson Square’s Shawna Thompson gave birth this morning, Sunday, January 24, at 2:46 am in a Nashville area hospital to a bouncing baby boy named Rigney Cooper Thompson.

The healthy blue-eyed boy weighed in at a respectable 7 lbs and 13 oz and was 19 inches long.

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.

Keifer and Shawna Thompson will celebrate their 17th wedding anniversary in May 2016.
