Not strange, wonderfully strange. In the last few years of surreal moments, that was a surreal one for sure.

Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany tells the Babies and Babies podcast that they struggled to have their son Memphis. “We tried for a year and a half. No one really knows this, but we had to do in vitro, so it was the longest process. It was such a roller coaster, and I ended up, through it all, having endometriosis. So they got rid of that, and then I ended up getting pregnant. I was considering a surrogate. We were thinking about all the options, which is sad because you want to be able to carry your own child, but you’re thinking, ‘What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I?’ We do want, probably just one more, because he has two children already, and then we had him, so I feel like four is a lot,” says Brittany. “But I want to try again, just so Memphis has someone to play with.”
