Big Kenny's family just got a little bigger with the addition of a new son, Dakota Jefferson Holiday Alphin, adopted by the Big & Rich singer and his wife, Christiev, in July.
"When they put Dakota in our arms, he has the most beautiful smile, and the moment Kenny started talking to him, Dakota lunged toward him," Christiev tells PEOPLE of their baby boy, now 9-months-old. "We both looked at each other and it was like, 'Of course he is our son.' "
Big Kenny (whose full name is Kenny Alphin), 46, and his wife already have a 4½-year-old son, Lincoln William, together and they decided to adopt domestically after unsuccessfully trying for a second child.
