Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles Reveals New ‘Heartbeat’ Tattoo
Stephen Barker Liles of Love and Theft got some new ink. The singer’s tattoo of a heartbeat has a super sweet meaning, one that will make all fans go, “Awwww.”
Liles’ tattoo on his right side is actually a recreation of his son Jett’s heartbeat. It’s is from the very first time he and his fiancée Jenna Kennedy got to hear their little one’s beating heart. He captions in the photo, “The first time we heard my sons heartbeat and the life that God gave him became real. Thank u steve at #hardcoretattoos ! #saltlake @jettbarkerliles.”
It’s one of the sweetest and most meaningful tattoos we’ve heard of, and will forever remind the Liles family of those first magical moments ‘meeting’ their son.
Jett was born on Dec. 2, 2013 and Liles described it as the greatest rush he had ever experienced. His birth put a hold on Liles and Kennedy’s wedding plans; they were surprised to find out they were expecting a baby boy — and decided to postpone their wedding as they prepared to meet their bundle of joy. The couple plans to wed this August in Nashville.
