Both John and Ana Cristina Cash took to Instagram on Saturday, July 17, to share the news of their son’s birth. His post showed a photo of the adorable new baby swaddled in his crib. Next to him is a sign bearing his name and the details of his birth.
“#jameskristoffercash born July 16, 2021 at 9:13am. Mother @anacristinacash is doing well. #jamescash is a #hungryfella!! Ana Cristina and I are honored to share the announcement of his birth with the world!” John shared via social media.
Ana Cristina Cash, who is also a singer and songwriter herself, shared the couple’s excitement about their new little bundle of joy. She also asked for the family to be able to spend time together without interference.
“My husband @johncartercash and I are proud and delighted to announce the birth of our son …” she posted to social media alongside similar photos shared by her husband. “Thank you for your support and for respecting our wishes for privacy during this special time as we bond with baby boy.”

John Carter Cash also has three other children. They are daughter, AnnaBelle, and two sons, Ezra and Joseph John.
John Carter Cash Is the Only Child of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash
To say that John Carter Cash was born into a talented musical family would be an understatement. As many country music fans are aware, he is the only child of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. He was born on March 3, 1970.
As such, it’s shouldn’t be surprising that he is a talented country music artist. He is also a respected producer, who has worked with many talented artists. One of his latest projects was working with country music icon Loretta Lynn. That project was her recent album, “Still Woman Enough.”
Unsurprisingly, he has a lot of respect for the Coal Miner’s Daughter.
“I have such great respect for Loretta as a mother figure, as a co-worker, as a genius, as someone who has persistence, strength, integrity, that continues on no matter what,” he once told Taste of Country.
