NEWARK, NEW JERSEY - AUGUST 26: Billy Ray Cyrus attends the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards at Prudential Center on August 26, 2019 in Newark, New Jersey

Be prepared to have your heart melt once you peek at country star Billy Ray Cyrus’ recent pic with his grandson, Bear Chance.

The three-week-old peanut sleeps soundly in his “Papaw’s” lap with the most precious smile between his chubby cheeks. Not even professional baby photographers can hope for an expression that sweet.

Grandpa Cyrus looks like he can stay on that couch with Bear all day, as he and the baby are both covered in a brown and white quilt. In the caption of his photo on Twitter, Cyrus says, “Papaw Cyrus holding Bear Chance Cyrus.   Or…. is He holding me ?  Probably both are accurate assessments!!! Thanking God for all my blessings . Amen”.

And it’s true, Bear already seems to have lived up to his name with the strong hold his has on his grandfather’s heart.

Billy Ray Cyrus’ Son Gives Thanks to God For Bear Chance

Billy Ray Cyrus’ son, Braison, and his wife, Stella McBride Cyrus, welcomed baby Bear Chance to the world on June 8th at 10:05 p.m. Already a proud father, Braison posted the happy news to Instagram once mom and baby were safe and happy at home.

However, the country star’s son couldn’t properly celebrate the news with followers without first giving thanks. Ever a religious man, Braison thanked God for his wife and new child in his caption.

“Bear Chance Cyrus was born June 8th, 2021 at 10:05 PM,” Braison wrote. “He is 9 lbs and 22 inches of pure joy. God poured every bit of his mercy, tenderness, beauty and strength into Bear and @stellamcyrus during her herculean feat of birthing him. I’m so blessed that he and his mom are healthy and couldn’t be more amazed by her strength and bravery. I am beyond grateful to the staff at the hospital and to our friends and family offering us encouragement and support. God is so good. Hallelujah.”

On his Instagram story, Billy Ray Cyrus’ son also shared how he sees God through his wife. On a photo of her laying on a pillow, Cyrus wrote, “She has the strength of Samson, the wisdom of Solomon, the vision of David and the love of Christ. She is the divine Mother and the sacred Woman, burning bright with holy Fire.”

Even More Photos of the Baby Bear

Since the birth of Bear Chance Cyrus, it seems no one in the family can get enough of him.

Leading up to his son’s birth, Braison created an Instagram story dedicated to his son. He posted photos of the room preparation, ultrasound appointments, and of course, baby Bear himself. On one photo, the new father wrote, “I can’t get over my beautiful sweet baby angel of a son… I have to shield my eyes from his cuteness.”

Ever photogenic, Bear Chance lays wide-eyed with a binkie in his mouth, swaddled in an orange blanket with a beanie. It’s safe to say that if mom and dad don’t spoil him thoroughly, Pawpaw Cyrus sure will.
