You might be a grandfather if… you post adorable photos with your grandson. Comedian Jeff Foxworthy celebrated becoming a grandpa. The comedian introduced his followers to the newest addition to the Foxworthy clan.

Foxworthy was practically beaming in the photo with his grandson. He cradled the newborn baby, considering the baby his favorite person already as well. This is also Foxworthy’s first time becoming a grandfather. His daughter Jules and her husband Brendan Corley had their first child together.

On Instagram, Foxworthy wrote, “With the birth of my first grandchild, everybody else on the planet dropped one spot in my rankings this week.”

In the weeks leading up to the birth, Foxworthy also helped decorate his grandson’s nursery. For instance, he showed off his artistic side by paining a portrait of a zebra. His daughter planned to hang the portrait in the nursery. Foxworthy also shared his excitement about becoming a grandfather in that post as well.

“My daughter is preparing my grandson’s nursery and asked for a baby zebra drawing,” he wrote. “So I drew her one! Can’t wait to meet this little guy in March!”

Jeff Foxworthy as a Comedian

As a comedian, Jeff Foxworthy first rose to prominence in the 1990s and 2000s. He became the creator of a series of popular jokes about being a redneck and living in the South. These jokes created outlandish perimeters for being a redneck. They usually began with Foxworthy’s trademark, “You might be a redneck if…”

Foxworthy led the highly successful Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which featured other comedians like Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and Ron White. During that time, Foxworthy also became the lead in his own, short-lived sitcom as well. Since then, Foxworthy moved into the realm of gameshow hosting. He entertained audiences as the host of the trivia show “Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?”

That show tested the basic knowledge and retention skills of contestants. Contestants had to answer questions that any basic fifth grader should learn in school. The results were often hilarious with Foxworthy bringing his trademark wit. In recent years, the comedian hosted “What’s It Worth” which examined the worth of people’s collectibles. So far, a single season of the series aired last fall.

When he’s not busy with work endeavors, Foxworthy spends his time with family.
