Congratulations go out to “Caught Up In the Country” singer, Rodney Atkins and his beautiful singer-songwriter wife, Rose Falcon. The couple FINALLY welcomed their second son, Scout Falcon, into the world on August 26th—almost a week after his due date.
According to People, the couple had tried everything to coax their baby boy out, but it was finally castor oil that got the job done. Rodney says, “At 9:30 p.m., she started having contractions, and at midnight we were in labor and delivery with our midwife Angie Long and our doula Amandine Bossy.”
He adds, “Witnessing Rose’s face, the whole thing completely natural, is the most superhuman thing I’ve ever experienced.”
Contrary to what some may think, the name “Scout” did not come from Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. Rodney explains, “Scout came from the first vehicle I ever drove. It was a 1976 International Scout. After “Watching You” went No. 1, Mike Curb gave me the keys to the ’72 Scout that I drove in the video. I’ve always thought it would be a cool name for a boy, and I still can’t believe Rose went for it.”

Rose and Rodney had struggled with infertility and, eventually, had success with IVF treatments which brought them their first son, Ryder.
Scout weighed 8-pounds, 11-ounces at birth and joins big brothers Ryder (20 months) and Elijah (17), Rodney’s son from his first marriage.
