Chris Lane and Lauren Bushnell Lane Welcome Baby Boy [PICS]

Chris Lane and Lauren Bushnell Lane welcomed their first baby, son Dutton Walker Lane, on Tuesday, June 8.  They chose the unusual name based on a favorite TV show.

“You can take one guess to where we kinda got that from, from the TV show Yellowstone,”  Chris said. “We really love the name a lot. I know it’s a little different, but I think it’s pretty cool.”

The proud papa shared the happy news on social media saying, “Words can’t describe the love i feel inside my heart for this little man! Thanks for all the prayers🙏🏻 I will never understand how @laurenlane birthed a 9 pound baby! DUTTON WALKER LANE welcome to the world.”

Chris talked to PEOPLE about the birth saying, “Everyone in the room, including Lauren and me, were shocked we had a 9-pound baby! Not sure where he was hiding in her belly?!” he joked before getting serious.”Watching Lauren go through the birthing process – from the beginning to the moment she delivered – was the most incredible thing I’ve ever witnessed. I experienced an emotion I’ve never felt before.”

He also revealed that he’s already written a song for Dutton!  “It’s called ‘Ain’t Even Met You Yet’ and sums up how I’ve been feeling over the last few months. I can’t wait to share it with him one day.”

Can’t wait to hear it, Chris.
