Rascal Flatts Jay DeMarcus and his wife Allison DeMarcus are expecting their second child this summer. Jay revealed their baby’s name in a recent interview with Lon Helton of Country Countdown USA’s. “We really are thrilled to be having a boy, and we’re gonna name him Dylan Jay DeMarcus. My wife, being the sweetheart that she is, decided that Jay needed to officially be in the family , so we decided to call him Dylan Jay DeMarcus.”
In the interview, Jay revealed additional details of his name. Jay explains, “My real name is Stanley Wayne DeMarcus Junior. My parents hated the name Stanley and they both hated Wayne, but my dad wanted a namesake. So my mom said, ‘I’m not gonna call him JR, I’m not gonna call him Junior, I’m not gonna call him Wayne because my dad went by Wayne, so we’re gonna call him Jay, so my name has been Jay my entire life, and you can imagine the nightmare in school, trying to get a driver’s license, because I was always called Jay.”
Baby Dylan will make his arrival later this summer and will join big sister Madeline.
