As Alan and Denise Jackson prepare to celebrate Christmas and the New Year, they have a lot to be thankful for. Firstly, the couple recently celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary on Friday, December 15th. This milestone marks a significant achievement in their long-lasting love story.
Additionally, they also welcomed their first grandchild two days earlier. This is a momentous occasion for the couple, who were high school sweethearts and married on December 15, 1979, when Alan was 21 and Denise was 19. Despite a brief separation nearly two decades later, the couple never divorced and eventually reconciled. They have been living happily ever after ever since.
The Jacksons have three daughters: Mattie Denise Selecman (born in 1990), Alexandra Jane “Ali” (born in 1993), and Dani Grace (born in 1997). Ali is the middle child, but she is the first of her siblings to give birth, making Denise and Alan officially grandparents.
Alan Jackson celebrated the joyful news on Instagram by posting photos of him and his wife cradling the child. The two were seated on a couch, the infant in Denise’s arms, surrounded by Alan in his famous Cowboy hat. The new ‘grandparent glow’ was palpable, and the couple couldn’t be happier to welcome their first grandchild into their family.
“Denise and I are marking our 43rd wedding anniversary with our new grandson Jackson Alvie Bradshaw,” Alan Jackson announced on December 13, 2022.
This special day coincides with the arrival of their first grandchild, who was welcomed into the world by Ali and Sam. “I’m overjoyed that this little guy has made us grandparents!” Alan wrote in the caption, expressing his excitement and joy. They’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time.
Just a few hours earlier, Alan shared another photo of himself and his wife, marking their 43-year marriage. “Everyone, please wish Alan and Denise a Happy Anniversary!” the singer said in the caption, as hundreds of fans commented to wish them a lovely day. The couple’s fans were thrilled to hear the news of their new grandchild and were happy to celebrate their anniversary with them.
The news also comes roughly three weeks after Alan Jackson posted a photo of his family in front of his massive fireplace. The photo featured Ali’s baby bump, which is now gone, and Alan was photographed beside his wife, three daughters, and their three significant others. Oh, and their two dogs were also present. It’s clear that the Jacksons are a close-knit family and they were all excited to welcome their new family member.
