Congratulations to them! I saw candids of them in October, picking up pumpkins that made me suspect a pregnancy!

Wonder what they’ll name this baby.

I’m so happy for them. I’m sad too cause I was hoping she would return as Wendy on Sons of Anarchy next season. Maybe she still will. But back to what is most important Congrats to Drea, Shooter, and Alabama.

I saw a picture of Drea online a few days ago,where she was working on a new acting project.I suspected she was preggers,since I noticed a baby bump.Congrats!

How exciting! If it’s a boy, I’m sure he’ll be named after Grandpa Waylon…I actually squealed out loud when I saw this – LOVE Shooter & Drea!!

Corrie, why do you think a boy would be named after Waylon? Have they said this before in interviews?

Beautee on

Awww Congratulations to them and I like their daughter’s name. = )

Kristin on

LOVE THEM. Can’t wait to see their new addition. gdfg Shooter is actually Waylon too. Not quite Jr, he and his dad have different middle names but I think that is what the comment was referring to, that if they had a boy maybe the baby would be named Waylon also.

congratulations to the beautiful family

Am I the only one that thinks she looks just like Portia de Rossi? I always have to do a double take when a see a photo of Drea!

Corrie on

No particular reason – it just wouldn’t surprise me if they chose to honor Shooter’s dad in that way. 🙂

Boy if they name their child after the state their in I hope it’s a boy and they’re in Nevada cause I cant believe they named the little girl Alabama what’s her nickname Peaches? and if they’re in Texas they name the baby after a city Dallas or Houston and if a little girl go for Abeline cause you can call her Abby.

Marie on

Great news!!! If it’s a boy Waylon would be prefect!! 🙂
