Bri Babineaux is enjoying motherhood. The Gospel singer recently shared candids of her son, Eli Arias, that were nothing short of precious.


“To my Eli Arias, you and I have been partners in this since the moment I saw those two little pink lines appear,” Bri wrote to her son. “Your heart was the first heart I created and my heart’s beat is the first you ever heard,” the new mom said. “We are so beyond lucky to have you in our lives. I love you more than you will ever know.”

Bri Babineaux and her husband, Keeslon Fontenot, welcomed their son last November. “The sweetest most perfect baby boy arrived on November 2nd, 2021 @ 2:53 pm weighing 8 lbs 8oz and 21 inches,” Bri told her Instagram followers. “We can formally introduce Eli Arias Fontenot to the world,” the celebrity mom said.

“We are so grateful to God for our little blessing and we promise to protect and cover him. We love you with everything in us,” Bri wrote to her son. “May all your big and little dreams come true. Love you, baby boy.”


Those who listen to Gospel music may have heard Bri’s hit single ‘He’s My Rock’ on the radio. The song, which is featured on her new album The Encounter Continues, is the product of Babineaux choosing to take a break from recording to refresh herself.

“I wanted my music to translate and be able to sing in any area or in any church,” Bri recently said of her creative process when working on her latest album. “I wanted to be very strategic about writing songs that were relatable,” Babineaux continued. “[I wanted to write songs] that were able to reach somebody.


Eli Arias is Bri Babineaux and Keeslon Fontenot’s first child. The Encounter Continues is available on digital platforms and in music stores nationwide.
