The “Freedom Was a Highway” singer was originally scheduled to live in Forest City, NC on Saturday, however, Jimmie took to Twitter to share that the show was postponed due to a family emergency.
Worried fans and followers later found out that all was well with the “Best Shot” singer, as the “family emergency” was actually the birth of his second daughter. The singer let fans know that all was well by tweeting out a photo of the baby emoji, followed by a photo of his new daughter.”

Allen and his wife Alexis have been together since spring 2019, after being introduced to each other by Jimmie’s cousin’s wife. The couple dated for a few months before getting engaged in July of the same year, followed by a gorgeous wedding at Pennsylvania’s Lake House Inn on May 27, 2021. The wedding came merely two weeks after the pair announced Alexis was expecting a child, which later turned out to be Zara James.
Allen has yet to make any comments on how or if the birth of his third child will change his time as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars — you’ll have to watch tonight @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC to see him not only perform with his partner Emma, but also address his new bundle of joy.
