Comments Off on If you’re “Smooth” like FGL’s Tyler Hubbard, you’re not afraid to change a diaper

ABC/Image Group LA Apparently real men change diapers.

Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard boasts in this week’s People magazine that he and wife Hayley are “crushing the diaper game,” since the birth of their daughter, Olivia Rose, on December 23.

Hayley clarifies, however, that Tyler may be just a little too modest, saying he “always takes charge. He’s like, ‘I’ll just change the diaper.’ I really haven’t had to change that many!”

When he’s not attending to his fatherly duties, Tyler and Brian Kelley are busy working on FGL’s fourth studio album.
