Oh, Macklemore you sure don’t share the details of your family’s journey in a subtle way. And we wouldn’t have it any other way, TBH. After sharing an ultrasound appointment video at the beginning of the year confirming his family was expanding with now-wife (we’ll get to that in a moment) Tricia Davis, he just uploaded a brand new song that revealed plenty of vital info. <3
This morning the Grammy-winning duo that is Macklemore + Ryan Lewis shared their first new song since 2012’s The Heist called “Growing Up (Sloane’s Song)” that has way more going for it than just an Ed Sheeran cameo. Here’s why this song is significant. The song’s notes, shared on Soundcloud, revealed the sex of Macklemore’s newborn (a daughter), her name (Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty) and her birthdate (May 29). But that’s not all because the single’s artwork also featured Macklemore holding Sloane’s hand with a wedding band. So it looks like that June 27 tweet “Feels like a good day to get married :)” was more than just your average social media post ;)
Congrats to the happy couple and here’s hoping more songs from the rapper’s new album will feature moments dedicated to the new ladies in his life.
How adorable is this Sloane dedication song from Macklemore? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
