Luke Combs and his wife Nicole are proud new parents for a baby boy, Tex Lawrence, who joined the family on Father’s Day, June 19th. Like any other parent for a newborn baby, they figure it out as they go, with the help of lots of advice from their friends, family, and fellow country artists. But there is one piece of advice Luke received that he says he takes with a grain of salt.
“The number one thing I heard is – goh, what do they call it, a night nurse? It’s something I’ve heard of, ”he recalls. “It’s something I heard about, of which I was just completely unaware of the existing.”
According to WhatToExpect.com, a night nurse is a newborn caregiver who helps with home care during the first few weeks of a baby’s life, specifically at night, so that exhausted new parents can get the much-needed rest. But Luke says he and Nicole have not rented one – at least not yet.
“You know, I think we’re going to try it for a while and just do it on our own,” Luke explains.
“This child did not have a choice to be born. You know, it was our choice to bring him into the world, ”the singer reasoned. “So I think it would be very selfish of me to say, ‘Oh, now I do not have time to do this thing.’ And I think trying to do it on our own is something we look forward to. ”
Still, Luke acknowledges that the harsh realities of caring for a newborn child can change his mind. “Maybe a month of no sleep will change my outlook on it. Who knows, ”he admits.
