Country singer Granger Smith welcomes fourth child Maverick Beckham with wife Amber

Granger Smith and his wife Amber have added another child to their family. 

On Friday the 41-year-old country singer announced that the couple of 11 years had welcomed a fourth child — a son by the name of Maverick Beckham. 

The pair, who tragically lost their three-year-old son River Kelly in 2019 after an accidental drowning, chose to honor their late son by way of their newborn’s name.

Granger shared the exciting news in a Friday Instagram post as Amber cradled their son Maverick in the hospital. 

‘He’s here! Wow…so many emotions. Maverick Beckham Smith made his debut today. He and @amberemilysmith are doing great.’ 

The Heaven Bound Balloons singer and Amber are also parents to daughter London, nine, and son Lincoln, seven.  

The couple had first revealed their infant’s name in a May YouTube video, as they explained how they strove to honor their late son River who tragically passed away two years ago.

‘I really wanted Riv to be in the name, whatever name we picked, I wanted Riv to be a part of that name. We went back and forth – should we do middle name Kelly? Or should we do middle name River?’ Amber explained at the time. 

‘I wanted this baby to have his own identity, and I didn’t want him to be so tied to River. But I did want him to have a little piece of his brother in his name.’ 

Of Maverick’s middle name Beckham, she continued to say that it ‘essentially means ‘home by the river,’ ‘ — a second way to honor their son.

And in an Instagram posted to Granger’s Instagram on August 14 he continued to elaborate on the name. 

 ‘1- it contains the letters R I V / 2-“there is no maverick molecule in the universe outside the sovereignty of God” -RC Sproul / 3- ok…fine…Top Gun was my favorite movie as a kid!’

The then three-year-old had somehow managed to enter their fenced pool at their Texas home in June 2019 which led to his accidental drowning, and since that time they have become fierce advocates for children’s water safety. 

As the pair had planned for River to be their last child, Amber had her tubes tied after he was born, making their road to welcome another child an uphill battle.

The couple announced they were expecting in March as they spoke about opting to do IVF which was made more complicated by clinics being shut down due to COVID-19. 

Four months later a clinic opened, and Amber did get pregnant using one of two viable embryos but she tragically miscarried just nine weeks later.  

Despite the tragedy the pair opted to try to use their only other viable embryo and thankfully four months later she got pregnant with Maverick.
