While the family is currently traveling for the Lady Antebellum singer’s summer tour in support of his solo albumThe Driver, Cassie says Ward has been able to “go with the flow.”

“He’s on a good schedule and he is pretty flexible,” she says. “He’s sweet and only cries if he really needs something — if he’s tired or hungry or has a dirty diaper. We got so blessed to get such a relaxed baby.”

But planes aside, the couple is also looking forward to spending time in their newly redesigned home in Nashville. Cassie worked with One Kings Lane’s design services, The Studio, and their head designer, Alex Reid, to give the space a kid-friendly makeover with elements like patterned ottomans that double as storage for toys.

“When you’re entertaining and you need a couple extra seats for guests, you just bring those into the seating arrangement and they’re polished enough,” says Reid.

“It’s really, really chic but so comfortable and homey,” adds Cassie of the space decorated with a blue and white color palette.

“We travel all the time and when we are home, we really just love to kind of cozy up and be there together, cook and have people over. The design of it now is just perfect for all the ways we like to live in our house.”
