Hillary Scott revealed her husband Chris Tyrrell will be absent from the upcoming Lady Antebellum “Summer Plays On” tour as she talked about family life in a new interview.
Scott, 32, who gave birth to identical twin girls Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn on January 29, told People that her other half, who plays the drums in the group, has agreed to stay home to look after the babies.
Calling Tyrrell a “hero,” the singer explained of taking the stage alongside Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley this summer: “We feel at complete peace with the decision.”
Scott, who also shares four-year-old daughter Eisele Kaye with Tyrrell, went on: “We’re both equipping each other to do exactly what we’re supposed to be doing right now.
“We just came to that agreement together. It was one of the easiest decisions we’ve ever made and the peace that we’ve felt since we made it has just been continual proof of it being the right call.”
Our family is thankful and proud to announce the arrival of our precious baby girls. They were born in the early hours of January 29th, 2018 and we can’t wait to share more about them in the days to come. Thank you to everyone who prayed and prayed for these little ladies, and thank you Lord for healthy babies. #twins
The musician, who had previously suffered a miscarriage before getting pregnant with the twins, said of going it alone: “It’ll hopefully be restful and efficient,” saying she’s “hoping to enjoy” the experience.
Tyrrell, on the other hand, insisted he’s “looking forward” to spending some quality time with the little ones.
He told the mag, “I’ve been a bandmate, employee, husband, and dad, so I’m okay removing a hat.
“Besides, when you looked at whether the band could do without me or her, there wasn’t much question!”
