Country singer Morgan Wallen shared the happy news on Monday that he has become a father.

Son Indigo “Indie” Wilder was born at 5:43 p.m. on July 10 in Nashville and weighed 6 lbs. 13 oz.

Wallen, 27, said he is changed man. “Since you came into the world Friday, I see mine differently now. It’s not just me anymore, and I’m glad it’s not,” he wrote on Instagram. “This year has been the hardest of my life in so many ways, but that’s not what i will remember it by. You are. You are a gift and this tough year just made sense.”

Indigo’s mother is Wallen’s ex-girlfriend KT Smith, who shared pics of the newborn on Saturday. "Indie Wilder you are your mama’s answered prayer times infinity and the cutest little human ham hunk I’ve ever laid eyes on,” she wrote.

In his Instagram post, Wallen – who was arrested in May – promised his baby boy he will be “the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves.”

He added: Since you were born, I know that every decision I make will be with you in mind. I promise I’ll always protect you, and do my best to be an example of a good, godly man just like my daddy was for me.”

Wallen went on to admit becoming a dad was “the coolest damn feeling” and that he “can’t wait to see him hook into his first big one.”

Little Wilder, I’m a changed man. Since you came into the world Friday, I see mine differently now. It’s not just me anymore, and I’m glad it’s not. This year has been the hardest of my life in so many ways, but that’s not what i will remember it by. You are. You are a gift and this tough year just made sense. I’ll be the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves. Since you were born, I know that every decision I make will be with you in mind. I promise I’ll always protect you, and do my best to be an example of a good, godly man just like my daddy was for me. I knew this day was coming when I got to share this news with y’all. And I’m glad that day is here. I didn’t know what being a dad would feel like, honestly have been a little scared. But it’s the coolest damn feeling, and I’m ready for whatever God has planned for me and my little guy. He’s healthy and happy and while I’m typing this I’m getting in the truck to go hold him right now. Thank you for all the love and prayers. Thank you to my friends and family who have called and texted me letting me know how happy they are for me and that I have their support. I can’t wait to see him hook into his first big one. Indie Wilder
