Who is Brittany Kerr? Not much is really known about the singer, but she became slightly infamous after her name popped up in headlines in 2012 after being photographed kissing country star Jason Aldean. Jason, who was married at the time to his wife of 11 years, has since split with Jessica Ussery — with whom he has two daughters — and wed Brittany in 2015 in a beach ceremony in Mexico.
Now, the couple just announced they've welcomed their first child together, Memphis Aldean Williams, a healthy baby boy, weighing in at 9 pounds, 5 ounces. Brittany — who is 29 years old and 11 years younger than her hubby — proclaimed on Instagram that it was, "Hands down happiest day of [her] life." While many country music fans are taking to the comments to congratulate the new parents, there are still a ton of people out there who want to know more about the new Mrs. Aldean.
Before making her way into the country music sphere, Brittany first got her start as an NBA dancer. She "cheered" or danced for the Charlotte Bobcats and footage of her at the basketball games was featured in her American Idol audition on Season 11. According to Country FanCast, she's also a first degree black belt. Want to know more about Jason's wife, Brittany? Keep reading to find out more about Brittany!
