Country singer Chris Lane’s newest song is dedicated to his newborn son and wife.

On Tuesday, June 15, Lane released “Ain’t Even Met You Yet,” a week after welcoming his first child with wife, and Bachelor alum, Lauren Bushnell Lane. The accompanying music video shows sweet footage from the couple’s pregnancy journey, including ultrasounds, a gender reveal and the pair practicing changing diapers on a baby doll. The song is about Lane’s experience as a father-to-be and his vision for the future as his son grows up.

“I wonder what your first words will be / I wonder if you’ll look like me / I wonder what the dogs will think the day we bring you home," he sings. "I’m going to buy you your first glove / You’re going to earn that first truck / I feel ready but I feel scared to death / All I know is I love you / and I ain’t even met you yet.”

Towards the end of the song he sings, “Yeah somewhere down that road / I’m going to hand you your first beer / I’m going to cry when you pack up and leave here / I feel ready but I feel scared to death / Gonna say a little prayer / Kiss your momma and go to bed / It’s crazy how much I love you / And I ain’t even met you yet.”

The couple welcomed a baby boy named Dutton on June 8. Lane showed off the newborn on social media at the time, writing, “Words can’t describe the love I feel inside my heart for this little man! Thanks for all the prayers. I will never understand how Lauren birthed a 9 pound baby! DUTTON WALKER LANE welcome to the world.”

Bushnell also posted photos of the baby, writing, “Dutton Walker Lane 🤍 born June 8th, 2021. Your dad and I can’t get enough of all 9 pounds of you. Now back to baby cuddles and praising Jesus over and over again for this little miracle!!"

The couple announced their pregnancy news back in December with a photo of a sonogram. In an interview with PEOPLE, Lane described how it felt to hold his son for the first time. “It was so special. He seems to be changing and growing every minute. I feel love in a way that I had never experienced before, and it’s so much bigger than I could have ever expected. I’m so proud and grateful to be a dad! … As a first-time parent, I know that I’ll be worried about everything because it is all new and different. But having Lauren by my side, I know that we can take on anything together.”
