Vince Gill’s Daughter, Jenny, Welcomes a Baby Girl
Jenny Gill, daughter of country music legend Vince Gill, welcomed a new daughter of her own on Friday (Jan. 12).
Jenny Gill recently shared a photo of her baby, named Everly June Van Valkenburg (8lbs 7oz.), on Instagram. "She's perfect and we cannot be happier!" she writes. Jenny also has a three-year-old son named Wyatt, posting that her "heart exploded" (we assume in a good way) the first time Wyatt and Everly met.
Jenny — the daughter of Vince Gill and Janis Oliver — married childhood friend Josh Van Valkenburg in a ceremony at her father and stepmom Amy Grant's home in 2010. He's the Senior Vice President for A&R for Sony/ATV while she is a singer and songwriter.
Gill released her debut six-song EP, The House Sessions, in February, which includes special guest appearances from Sheryl Crow, Willie Weeks, Jack Pearson and Jon Randall. She also wrote five of the six songs on the EP. According to Jenny, The House Sessions is meant to establish her own sound and curb any preconceived perception of her work because of her family name. Currently, Gill is not on tour and appears to be focusing on family life.
However, she's not the only one taking time away from music to welcome new bundles of joy into their lives. 2017 was a busy baby year in country music with Thomas Rhett's wife Lauren giving birth to a baby girl in August, while Brantley Gilbert (son), Tyler Hubbard (daughter) and Jason Aldean (son) all welcomed new babies in late 2017. Chris Stapleton's wife, Morgane, is also expecting twins in 2018.
