Chris Stapleton, Wife Welcome Twin Boys

Chris Stapleton is a father of four after wife Morgane welcomed twins.

The happy news came Sunday night via ACM Awards host Reba McEntire. “Those little rascals came a little bit early,” she said, explaining why Stapleton wasn’t on hand to pick up his Male Artist of the Year award.

“Hot off the press! … Twin boys.”
