"Everyone in the room, including Lauren and me, were shocked we had a 9-pound baby! Not sure where he was hiding in her belly?!" the new dad joked.

The 36-year-old singer then opened up about the life-changing process of seeing a baby come to life and said it was “the most incredible thing” he has seen.

"Watching Lauren go through the birthing process - from the beginning to the moment she delivered - was the most incredible thing I've ever witnessed. I experienced an emotion I've never felt before,” he continued.

Big, Big Plans singer’s wife also opened up about the magical experience of becoming a mother and the support she received in this time from her husband.

"I've never felt an immediate unconditional love like I now have for Dutton. And going through this experience with Chris has made me love and appreciate him even more … I didn't think that was possible!" Lauren added.
