    Luke Combs has admitted missing the birth of his second son was "one of the worst days" of his life

    The 'Where the Wild Things Are' hitmaker was in Sydney, Australia in August 2023 when his wife Nicole went into labour two and a half weeks early and he recalled receiving a text message from her breaking the news while he was asleep


    Speaking on 'The Zane Lowe Show', he said: "I'll never forget the craziest day, probably, in my life - close to it. One of the best and one of the worst days in my life at the same time.

    "I probably woke up at around 8:00 a.m. or something like that, Australia time, and I had a text from my wife and it said, 'I'm so sorry, I really tried to not have the baby while you're gone.' And God, dude, it sucked."

    Fortunately, the 34-year-old singer - who also has two-year-old Tex with his wife - was able to watch his son come into the world via video link.

    He grew emotional as he said: "I got to see him be born, which was awesome. He wasn't born yet, but my wife went, she texted me on the way to the hospital and he was two and a half weeks early and I was supposed to be home and I wasn't."

    Luke's tour had been due to end less than two weeks later before he then took more than a month off to be with his family.

    The 'Fast Car' singer found it too painful a memory to look back on for his latest album 'Fathers and Sons'.

    He added: "And that was real hard to do and I haven't really told anybody that. But I didn't cover that too much in this album because it's really hard for me to deal with."

    At the time, the couple waited until Luke was back home before announcing Beau's birth.

    They wrote in a joint Instagram post at the time: "8.15.2023 - Beau Lee Combs. Welcome to the world. We couldn't love you more [blue heart emoji] (sic)"
