“We are thrilled to announce our family is growing,” Rodney shared on social media. “Baby Atkins will arrive in December and we know Elijah is going to be the best big brother.”
This is the first child for the couple and the second for Rodney, who had his son Elijah with his first wife Tammy Jo. If you remember, Elijah appeared in the video for “Watching You,” a song he also inspired after he was caught singing “If You’re Going Through Hell.”
Rodney and Rose married in November 2013 during a beachside service on Captiva Island, Fla. His son Elijah served as his best man.
