'Little Big Town' Kimberly Schlapman Adopted A Newborn Baby After Her Elder Daughter's Christmas Wish

Date December 24, 2019

Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman has a beautiful family: husband, Stephen Schlapman, and their two daughters: biological girl, Daisy and adopted baby girl, Dolly.

After losing her first husband, Kimberly was devastated, but her long-term friend proved she could fall in love all over again. The couple tied the knot in 2006 and has been raising two children decently. How did adoption change the little family’s life?

Kimberly Schlapman’s adoption

Here’s a quick timeline:

  • 2006: Kimberly Schlapman marries her husband, Stephen Schlapman.
  • 2007: Kimberly and Stephen Schlapman welcome a biological daughter, Daisy Pearl
  • 2017: Kimberly and Stephen Schlapman adopt a newborn named Dolly Grace.

The Little Big Town star is a doting mother of two lookalike daughters, Daisy and Dolly. In January 2017, Kimberly Schlapman announced to the world that she and her partner, Stephen, turned to domestic adoption and took a newborn girl, Dolly Grace.

Actually, it bonded family members even more. Kimberly and Stephen’s firstborn daughter, Daisy Pearl, asked for a sibling as a Christmas gift. The couple’s rep told PEOPLE:

Kimberly and Steve were able to welcome home a baby girl in this new year with a successful domestic adoption. Their daughter Daisy Pearl asked Santa for a baby for Christmas.

All people and bandmates congratulated Kimberly, Stephen, and Daisy within several hours, referring to Dolly Grace as a little angel. Indeed, the family was on the seventh heaven to have another daughter added to their small kinship.

    Prayers are always heard

    Thanks to Daisy’s prayers for years to God, she got a baby sister for Christmas in 2017. Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman dished on the unbreakable bond Daisy and Dolly have:

    She’s a little mama — so helpful! She’ll hold her, rock her, feed her. This is her baby doll, a real-life baby doll.

    Talking to PEOPLE, the A-lister also added that it was destiny to have Dolly as her second child.

    Dolly was always meant to be a part of our family. We had a little puzzle piece missing, and she’s filled it up. We are ecstatic.

    Kimberly once stated that not only Dolly Grace needed as but they, as a family, also needed her.

    Love has just grown and exploded, and the things that matter have become so much more apparent even than before. She needed us, but we also needed her. I feel like it was ordained forever ago by God that we would all be together. I couldn’t be more grateful.

    We think adoption is one of the best things a human being can ever do. Kimberly and Stephen Schlapman deserve admiration and respect for their sweet-hearted deed. Surely, thanks to their firstborn daughter for wishing to have a sister, too!
