Sammy Kershaw welcomes his new daughter

On September 11, Mendy and Sammy welcomed their little miracle, baby girl Natelia Mae. The famous singer explained the origins of her name to PEOPLE:

Natelia was my grandmother’s name and Mae was Mendy’s grandmother’s name. She is a gift from God.

The 61-year-old isn't afraid of becoming a member of The Older Dads club. He says that work always prevented him from playing a part in his children's upbringing, so now he's looking forward to being a hands-on dad:

I have great kids but I was gone all the time so I can’t really take all of the credit for having great children. I have to give credit where credit is due and that’s my ex-wife Kim.

Social media reactions

People on Twitter displayed mixed reactions, mostly due to the fact that Sammy is 61 years old and had just become a new dad.

But age doesn't matter as long as Sammy and Mendy are happy. Our congratulations go out to the happy parents!
