Son's Health Scare Changes Luke Bryan's Perspective

Even before his son Thomas Boyer ‘Bo’ Bryan, 4 ½-months, was born in March Luke Bryan says he knew instinctively that having a baby would change everything; the country singer even penned a song — "I’ll Never Be The Same Again" — while wife Caroline was still pregnant. But when their then-newborn son required abdominal surgery at 5-weeks, the medical scare drove the point home for the couple that they were now living "a totally different life," Luke says in a new interview with Country Weekly. It’s a life he wouldn’t trade for anything. Notes Luke,

It’s fun not living for yourself anymore. You’re livin’ for something else.

Bo has since recovered from his surgery, and his family is happy to find themselves focusing on the more mundane aspects of parenthood, like diaper changes — something Luke says he does "pretty well."

I’ve got it down. With the little boys, you’ve gotta be careful or they’ll surprise you! But I don’t think about it much. If he’s wet and he’s fussin’ you gotta get it off there and get him back happy.

Speaking of happiness, like all parents, Luke says he wants "everything to go [Bo's] way." At the same time, however, Luke says he wants Bo to understand "that everything don’t go your way." "Life’s up and down from the time you get here to the time you leave. I just want him to have the opportunities I’ve had and to go after dreams like I’ve been able to do," he adds.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
