Phillip Phillips & Wife Hannah Welcome First Child — Find Out Their Son’s Unique Name!

“American Idol” Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips, 29, is a dad for the first time!

Last weekend, Phillips’ wife Hannah Blackwell, 27, gave birth to a son, who they named Patch Shepherd.

On Thursday, Phillip announced the baby’s arrival, writing on Instagram, “Sunday morning our little boy made a fast entrance into the world. I cried more than he did… I’m forever in love with this little kid. He’s changed me so much already. We can’t take our eyes off of him. He’s perfect. Our prayers were answered and this new journey has begun. Welcome, Patch Shepherd Phillips. @hgblackwell.”

The 29-year-old made sure to praise Hannah, writing, “Hannah was an absolute rockstar in delivery and she has been such an amazing mom these last four days.”

Hannah also had sweet words about her man, writing, “Phillip has continued to be the most supportive and loving man I know. I knew from the day I met PP that he would be the best daddy.”

Along with sharing the same photo, she added, “Sunday morning, Patch Shepherd Phillips made me a mama. He came ahead of schedule and on his own terms with speed. No amount of reading or listening can prepare one for this kind of love… I don’t know how I am going to handle this whole falling in love over and over again daily. Thanks for all the prayers and love.”

The couple announced they were expecting in July. He wrote, alongside a pic of her ultrasound, “Phillip and Hannah sittin’ in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G! First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in the baby carriage this fall! #P^3.”

That same month, Hannah opened up about her difficult pregnancy. She revealed on Instagram with a pic of Phillip and herself, “We’ve spent lots of time worried, in pain, or being regulars at the doctor. Not once has this guy complained. In fact, he has just leaned into our love more. We have been through more than anyone will ever know in 10 years, but this journey has been such a mental and physical test for me.”

She gushed, “I fell in love knowing he would be a great dad, but man. What a partner. Y’all get to see the performer, I see a man who sits awake with me all night while I am sick and never misses a beat. The real deal.”

Phillip and Hannah tied the knot in 2015.
