Morgan Wallen is celebrating his son Indigo’s first birthday party with his family. After his racist slur controversy, this is the first happy occasion he is celebrating at home.
The 28-year-old country star shared some photos on Instagram. They were celebrating the boy’s rodeo-themed party. He posted a photo of himself holding the child and wrote, “1 year of being a legend…Happy birthday, son.”
The musician announced the arrival of his son in 2020. After Katie gave birth, he wrote on social media, “Little Wilder, I’m a changed man. Since you came into the world Friday, I see mine differently now. It’s not just me anymore, and I’m glad it’s not.”
This February a video was leaked and later he apologized, “I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back. There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”
For this controversy, the Academy of Country Music deemed him ineligible to be nominated. He was also banned from appearing on the show.
