Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus and Wife Reveal Name of Baby Boy
Earlier this year, Rascal Flatts‘ Jay DeMarcus and wife Allison DeMarcus revealed the news that they’re expecting their second child this summer. In a recent interview with Country Countdown USA‘s Lon Helton, Jay revealed that the couple has selected a name for their baby boy.
“We really are thrilled to be having a boy, and we’re gonna name him Dylan Jay DeMarcus,” he said. “My wife, being the sweetheart that she is, decided that ‘Jay’ needed to officially be in the family, so we decided to call him Dylan Jay DeMarcus.”
Jay went on to explain to the somewhat complicated story behind his own name, which his son will take as his middle name.
“My real name is Stanley Wayne DeMarcus Jr. My parents hated the name Stanley and they both hated Wayne, but my dad wanted a namesake. So my mom said, ‘I’m not gonna call him JR, I’m not gonna call him Junior, I’m not gonna call him Wayne,’ because my dad went by Wayne, so ‘We’re gonna call him Jay.’ So my name has been Jay my entire life, and you can imagine the nightmare in school, trying to get a driver’s license, because I was always called Jay.”
Dylan Jay will join the couple’s first child, Madeline Leigh, who born December 17, 2010.
Little Dylan is expected some time in August.
