FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Wife Hayley Reveal Sex of Third Child — with the Help of an Elephant!
The exciting reveal took place at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, the couple’s rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively
Tyler Hubbard and wife Hayley are having a boy!
The exciting reveal took place on March 4, during a trip to Africa that the Florida Georgia Line singer and his wife took with their daughter Olivia “Liv” Rose, 2, as well as bandmate Brian Kelley and his wife Brittney, PEOPLE can exclusively share.
In order to plan the big reveal, Hayley turned to Brittney for help — who found out the baby’s sex before going abroad and kept the news from her husband, who also wanted to be surprised.
When the group all made a visit to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, which is known for its elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation programs, Brittney stealthily gave a blue scarf to an elephant keeper upon their arrival.
Before the special elephant paid a visit to the group, Tyler and Hayley explained to their daughter, who loves elephants, that if the animal came to them wearing a blue scarf, she would be getting another little brother, and if the elephant had a pink scarf, a baby sister would be on the way this fall.
Much to Olivia’s surprise, when the elephant appeared, the blue scarf it wore revealed that her parents are expecting a son!
That night, the Hubbards and the Kelleys kept the celebration going with a dinner in Kenya.
Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line go way back —they’ve written hit songs together, toured the world together, and shared many glasses of whiskey along the way. Their latest collaboration, Wolf Moon Bourbon, is a tribute to all the incredible memories they’ve made throughout the years and a celebration of all the new ones still yet to come.
Wolf Moon Bourbon was born out of brotherhood and created for life’s special moments shared with those we love most. This whiskey is aged to perfection in new American oak casks for four years to achieve a sweet and smooth profile. Keep an eye out for Wolf Moon Bourbon on tour with Jason Aldean and at your local retailer very soon.

No new management has been announced.
“It has been an incredible journey with our Big Loud family and we are so thankful for the last nine years,” Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley said in a joint statement. “Together we’ve grown more than we could have ever imagined due to what we all bring to the table. As we continue to evolve, so do our needs and our team. Although bittersweet, we and Big Loud are excited to support and encourage each other as we enter the next chapter of our careers, and welcome a new family into our world with open arms. We will continue to dream big and push ourselves to be the best we can be in all facets of life. We are just getting started.”
