Luke Bryan’s kids are growing up fast and the award-winning country music star makes sure he’s always there for them despite his busy schedule. Luke Bryan and his college sweetheart turned wife Caroline Boyer have two sons together and three adopted teens with whom they share the sweetest bond.
The Love Story
The couple first met in the Fall of 1998 at a little bar called Dingus Magees, located in Statesboro, Georgia. Luke Bryan was three years older than Caroline, who was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority at Georgia Southern University, where they both attended. They dated back in college but when Luke graduated, he made a move to Nashville to pursue a music career.
But fate had plans for them and they met after five and a half years. He was playing back then in a little bar in Statesboro and Caroline also happened to be in town at that time as well. They saw each other and then talked a bit and after that, they started emailing back and forth. And then Caroline invited him to her family’s Christmas party and the rest was history.
Building a Family
Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer tied the knot on December 8, 2006 in Turks & Caicos. And then they spent their honeymoon in the beautiful Colorado Mountains.
When the two married and started their family, Luke wanted his kids to grow up with a country-style of life. He also added that he wanted his kids to learn how to hunt and fish, which were things he also enjoyed himself. So much that he even co-wrote a song titled Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Everyday in 2016.
After two years of marriage, the couple welcomed their firstborn Thomas Boyer.
Thomas Boyer or more playfully known as Bo, was born on March 18, 2008. During his early years, Bo spent a lot of time on a tour bus traveling with his parents and the band. Bo is now finally turned into a teen this 2021. And both of his parents celebrated the day with an Instagram post. Luke greeted his son with a photo of them skiing.
It’s undeniable that Luke’s music career took off since the birth of Bo. According to Luke, Bo was also a pro in predicting chart-topping hits from his albums and called out four consecutive songs that hit number one.
Despite all of the fame, Bo remains a grounded teen who enjoys hunting and fishing with his dad and some good, old family time. According to Caroline, Bo was very much like his dad who wakes up singing and dancing.
In 2010, the couple welcomed their second child named Tatum Christopher.
Tatum Christopher or Tate is the family’s baby. He was born on August 11, 2010, two years after his older brother Bo. This kid who is turning 11 this year looks very much like his dad and fans even comment that the resemblance is getting clearer as Tate grows up. But personality-wise, he got it from his mom. According to Caroline, Tate likes to be in the background which was very much like her.
Tragic Losses and The New Chapter of Their Family
Luke Bryan has had a share of tragic losses in his life. When he was 19 getting ready to move to Nashville, his older brother Chris was killed in a car accident. After the tragic event, Luke delayed his move and went on to finish his degree at Georgia Southern University where he met his future wife, Caroline Boyer.
Seven years later, in May 2007, Luke’s sister Kelly unexpectedly passed away at home with her 3-year-old son. In an interview with People in 2013, Luke said that they never got an answer to what really happened with her sister. Kelly and his husband Ben Lee Cheshire had three kids namely Jordan, Kris, and Til.
But in 2014, Ben passed away and the teens he had been raising on his own were now left alone. Overnight, Luke Bryan and his wife became parents to three teenagers. Caroline said that they never thought twice about adopting their two nieces and nephew. They didn’t have a sit-down talk about it or anything. They just did it.
At that time, the two older sisters, Jordan and Kris, were off to college and living independently. But Til had to stay with Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline, and that took some real adjustment for the couple. The main thing with Til was that Luke wanted to just give him the right amount of advice. He wanted to have that parent role for him, but he also wanted to be his friend.
Caroline also mentioned that they were navigating around the world of dating with Til. She said that Til was so sweet and cute, but he has never juggled a lot of girls all at once.
There was also a shift in the roles because before Bo was the alpha male, but with Til coming along, he became the middle child. And from being the baby of the family, Til suddenly became the oldest. But according to Luke, they were all doing well with it. Bo and Tate treat Til like their brother, and Til does the same for them.
After The Hard Times
Though the expanded Bryan family went through some really hard times, they now try to push past the hurt, to keep going and be as positive as they can. Luke also added that they try to appreciate everyday.
In an interview with People, he said that he has watched his family go through a lot to a point that they would get mad at God and why things happened to them. But in time, they overcame that.
Now, Luke Bryan’s kids take the challenges of life together, side-by-side with him and Caroline.
