"I'm not seeing what I think I'm supposed to be seeing here": Tyler Hubbard's gender-reveal surprise

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LANot too long ago, Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley got quite a surprise.

Tyler was busy preparing for a life of baseball and bicycles, after the news he and Hayley were expecting a son. But when it came time for the ultrasound, that all changed.

“For two-and-a-half months, we thought we were having a little boy…” he tells ABC Radio. “Sitting there doing the ultrasound, and looking at the whole entire baby — you know, its head, the brain, all the organs, bones. I mean, it was crazy… And we get down to kind of the legs and stuff, and I’m sitting there watching, and I’m thinking, ‘We might have an issue here. I’m not seeing what I think I’m supposed to be seeing here, you know,” he says with a smile.

Soon afterwards, Tyler’s suspicions were confirmed.

“You know, sure enough the doctor came in and she was like, ‘You know, I think the blood test was actually wrong. I think y’all are having a girl, which I’ve never really seen that happen.”

“So, anyway, it was a cool surprise. We had to shift gears. It took a day or two for me,” he admits. (AUDIO IS ABC 1-ON-1)

Look for Tyler and Hayley’s blessed arrival to come sometime around December 20.

This week on the Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith, we get our 2017 Dove Season forecast with Texas Parks and Wildlife Biologist and Dove Program Leader Shaun Oldenburger. Texas accounts for nearly 40% of the U.S. annual dove harvest. We discuss how many millions of doves Texas hunters harvest and how many shot shells it takes to reach that number. We also dive into recent precipitations affect on Opening Day. Shaun gives us an inside look at Whitewing dove numbers and that species continued expansion North as well.
 
Then we check in with our old friend Eva Shockey. Her new book “Taking Aim” covers all things hunting, life, cooking and much more is due out at the end of the month. We also talk North Carolina bear hunting, Yukon moose and her favorite wild game recipe.
 
Next we check in with Carl Van Zyl of John X Safaris. What do American hunter dollars really do on the ground in Africa? The longtime PH and 2nd Generation owner of John X gave us his thoughts while we were in South Africa 2 weeks ago.
 
We wrap things up when Scentblaster creator and Heron Outdoors President Heath Hardwick stops by. For hunters who use scent to attract game, this unit is a game changer. New for the fall of 2017, Heath gives us an overview of how the Scentblaster lures in game.
