Shooter Jennings admits that life moves at Alabama's pace now

03/25/2008 at 03:32 AM ET

Singer Shooter Jennings, 28, was used to living at his own pace, but that has all changed since and he and girlfriend, actress Drea de Matteo, 36, welcomed daughter Alabama Gypsyrose three months ago.

It changed my life completely but in every possible good way. It puts the whole thing in perspective, ’cause life is now moving at her pace. It’s driven me more creatively, too. We’ve brought her out on the road so that I can be with her more. She’s such a great baby. Drea and I thought we were too young to have a baby. But we love it. All the priorities in my life have just changed.

Did you and your husband have a hard time adjusting to your baby’s pace once s/he arrived? How long did it take to get used to it?

They thought they were too young to have a baby??! Drea de Matteo is 36, so she’s 8 years older than him! It’s not exactly abnormal for a woman in her 30’s to have babies!! Their baby is very cute anyway.
