What a wonderful way to start the New Year! Eli Young Band bassist Jon Jones wasn’t out partying on New Year’s Eve; he was with his wife Sarah as she had their baby boy that afternoon!
“We are ecstatic about this beautiful baby boy that came into our world,” announced the couple to People magazine. “Words cannot describe our excitement and joy.”
Baby Hudson Lennon Jones was born December 31 at 1:30 pm near Fort Worth, Texas. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces and measured 21 inches long. Little Hudson was expected to arrive around Christmas time, but apparently he wasn’t ready to meet his parents yet. In spite of his tardiness, Sarah was still able to have a natural birth as planned.
“The birth was extremely smooth. We left our house at 10 a.m. for the birthing center when contractions were four minutes apart and he was born just a few short hours later. We had a great birth team who helped us through everything.”
The delivery was so smooth the whole family was able to make it home in time to see the ball drop. They are doing well, and much like fellow band member Mike Eli who had his baby girl back in July, Jon and Sarah are starting off their New Year as first-time parents.
”I could not be more proud of my wife,” said Jon, “and could not be a happier father.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
