The Stapps revealed that they were going to be adding to their family exclusively to PEOPLE in June, sharing sweet snaps from a maternity photo shoot. “This is such a gift,” the Grammy winner told PEOPLE at the time. “We truly couldn’t be happier or more excited.”
“This is a huge surprise, and a blessing, and a miracle,” said Jaclyn, a former Miss New York USA who models and runs a children’s charity, the CHARM Foundation. “We thought we were done with diapers and pacifiers. This surprise fell into our lap, and we are just on cloud nine!”
Added Scott, “It’s amazing. We just bought a new home and moved in. We were getting settled, and then we found out about the baby. The kids were jumping up and down. It’s so cute to see them. Every day, our 7-year-old runs up to Jaclyn and puts his head on her belly and talks to the baby!”
Scott and Jaclyn told their kids they would be getting a baby brother in late August, during an onstage moment that will likely go down as one of the most memorable in the family’s history.
“There’s something important I want to share with you guys,” Stapp said to the cheering crowd in Austin, Texas. “Many of you may know this, but some of you may not. But my wife Jaclyn and I are expecting a new baby.”
“Now we want to share something very special to our family with you guys tonight. We’re gonna find out the gender of the baby right now,” he added after bringing Daniel and Milán onstage, revealing after a countdown, “It’s a boy.”
After the reveal, Stapp performed “With Arms Wide Open” — the Creed song he wrote when he found out that he was going to be a dad for the first time, to Jagger.

Scott, Jaclyn, Daniel and Milán celebrated the youngest member of the family’s impending arrival with a “Royal Prince”-themed baby shower in October, featuring elegant gold and blue detailing throughout everything from the flowers to the food, drinks and even desserts.
“We chose the name Anthony, which was Scott’s birth name until about 12 years of age, when he was adopted,” Jaclyn told PEOPLE at the time, sharing exclusive photos from the event.
