Country star Jason Aldean has two reasons to celebrate Feb. 14. Not only is it Valentine’s Day, but it’s also his eldest daughter’s birthday.
Jason Aldean Shares Heartfelt Message on Daughter’s Birthday
This year in particular, Aldean is marking the special occasion with a lengthy Instagram post.
“Today my oldest turns 18,” Aldean posted Sunday. “As a parent when u bring them home from the hospital, you just wanna do everything you can to protect them, keep them safe and raise them to have a good life. I don’t think we realize how fast 18 years comes and goes. Keeley, I am so proud of you and the person you have grown into. Happy birthday kiddo. We love u so much! #valentinesbaby❤️.”
A Sweet Surprise for Keeley
That’s not the only sweet thing Aldean has done for his oldest daughter. When Keeley missed out on her junior prom thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Aldean threw a surprise prom for her at the family’s home in Florida, where they were quarantining.
“Today is May 2nd, 2020, and it was supposed to be Keeley’s junior prom in Nashville, but for obvious reasons it’s not happening,” Aldean’s wife, Brittany Aldean, said in an IGTV video, per iHeart Radio. “So we are gonna throw her prom at home and so here we go! Let’s do it!”
The makeshift prom featured takeout from P.F. Chang’s, beautiful blue and silver decorations and a very surprised Keeley.
“I’m gonna cry!” Keeley said, upon learning what the family had planned for her.
“Put your dancing shoes on,” said Aldean, her date for the night, adding, “I can’t dance.”
Aldean Celebrates His Kids’ Birthdays With Sincere Posts
Earlier this month, Aldean also took to Instagram to celebrate his daughter Navy turning 2 years old.
“Hard to believe this little nugget is 2 years old today,” Aldean captioned a picture of Navy. “I wish all kids could be this sweet and loving. She is a special little girl! Happy birthday Navy baby. We love you so much.”
The post quickly racked up almost 70,000 “likes” and thousands of comments.
Aldean has four children total – two with ex-wife Jessica Ussery and two with former “American Idol” contestant and current wife Brittany Kerr, now Brittany Aldean.
Like her ex-husband, Ussery has since remarried someone else.
