Brad Mates, frontman for Canadian country band Emerson Drive, and his wife, Jana, welcomed their first baby earlier this week! Tyler Robert weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces at his birth on April 28th. The band has a fairly light tour schedule through May, which should give Mates time to adjust to being a daddy!

The country music band is planning to welcome its newest member next month. Lead singer Brad Mates and his wife, Jana, are looking forward to the birth of their first child, a boy. Tyler is set to appear in April, which happily (and probably deliberately!) coincides with a break in the group’s touring schedule.
