County music superstar Jason Aldean wished his “cool and funny” Pops a happy Father’s Day on Twitter by sharing a photo of the two out on a fishing boat.
“Happy Father’s Day to my Pops. One of the coolest and funniest guys I know. Love you, Dad,” Aldean wrote in a tweet.
He also noted that the holiday isn’t just a celebration of traditional fatherhood. Aldean also wished all the “other dads, bonus dads and grandads out there” a happy Father’s Day as well.
The Aldeans Celebrate in Style
Father’s Day weekend is often a busy time in the Aldean household because his wife Brittany’s birthday always falls near the holiday. This year it happened to be the day before Father’s Day.
To celebrate Britany’s 34th birthday, Aldean shared a very happy birthday wishes on Instagram. Aldean captioned a photo of the two together by saying “Thank you for being my rock and my best friend. Happy birthday baby. #myqueen.” As of Sunday June 20, the post had been liked over 120,000 times.
Last year, Aldean threw his wife an “amazing” surprise birthday party, according to a report by iHeartRadio. The party included some time by the pool with friends, a few drinks, and a slideshow of family photos.
However, Jason doesn’t always like to celebrate in the same way, Brittany says. She told US Weekly in an interview last year that Aldean approaches Father’s Day in a much more laid back way. Instead of throwing a huge party, Brittany says Jason would rather have drinks and a small cookout with friends.
Aldean’s Pride and Joy
This Father’s Day weekend was a special one for Aldean after his oldest daughter Keeley Williams graduated from high school earlier this month. Aldean marked the occasion with a heartwarming post on Instagram.
“Hard to believe this kid graduated from high school tonight,” Aldean wrote. “Really excited to see what the next chapter in life holds for her. Your future is what u make it, so go get em Keeley. We love you!”
It’s not clear whether Keeley will follow in her father’s country music footsteps. However, she did enroll at Belmont University, one of Nashville’s most fertile “music training grounds,” according to a report by Wide Open Country.
Keeley is one of two daughters from Aldean’s previous marriage to his high school sweetheart, Jessica Ussery. Aldean also has a daughter named Kendyl with his ex wife. The marriage lasted from 2001 to 2013.
Aldean then married Brittany (Kerr) in 2015 and welcomed their first child together, Memphis, two years later. Their second child, Navy Rome Aldean, was born in February 2019.
