Jimmie Allen is loving life right now.
Jimmie and fiancée Alexis Gale welcomed a baby girl—Naomi Bettie Allen—to their family on March 1, the same day Jimmie got news that he scored his second consecutive No. 1 single with “Make Me Want To,” which topped the Mediabase chart this week.
Jimmie called morning show co-hosts Chuck Wicks and Trisha “T.J.” Jenkins on March 2 to share the great news.
“I though getting a number one [single] was going to be the best part of my day, but then my daughter, Naomi, was born yesterday,” says Jimmie.”The baby’s middle name is Bettie, we named her after my grandma [who passed away in 2014], so her initials are NBA, go figure. And my grandma’s birthday was actually March 13, my mom’s birthday is March 7 and Naomi’s birthday is March 1. And [fiancee] Lexi is laying right here looking awesome.”
Jimmie has a slate of tour dates in Europe and Australia on the docket in March.
“Thursday, we head out of the country for about three-and-a-half weeks,” says Jimmie. “It’s been a good day, definitely thankful for it, and thankful for you guys’ support.”
Listen to Jimmie talk with Chuck and T.J.
Jimmie also has a five-year-old son from a previous relationship. Congrats to the happy family.
