Bruce Springsteen can now add grandfather to his long list of titles. The youngest son of the legendary New Jersey rocker’s youngest son, Sam, 28, and his partner recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl, named Lily Harper.
The Boss’s wife Patti Scialfa shared the news of the birth of their first grandchild by posting a couple of heartwarming photos to her Instagram page. The first photo, which is black-and-white, shows the Jersey City firefighter pushing a baby carriage with his arm around his soon-to-be-wife.
‘walking the baby_. Lily Harper Springsteen,’ Scialfa, 68, gushed in the caption. The smiling couple appear to be walking along a road that’s part of Springsteen’s sprawling 127-acre farm in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
Scialfa also shared a picture of the newborn wearing pink hospital mitts and a matching beanie cap. Congratulations poured in from the likes of Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello and actresses Mickey Sumner and Larsen Thompson.
‘That is some big time good news Grandma,’ wrote Amy Aiello Lofgren, wife of E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofren. Longtime supermodel Christy Turlington joined in on the love fest: ‘She’s precious. Welcome to the world, sweet girl.’
Sam graduated from the Monmouth County Fire Academy in 2014 and previously served with his hometown Colts Neck Fire Department, the Long Branch Fire Department and the North Wildwood Fire Department, according to App.
He was sworn in a firefighter in Jersey City, New Jersey in 2020. The leader of the legendary E Street Band and wife also have a son Evan, 31, who works for SiriusXM Radio, and a daughter Jessica, 30, an equestrian who won a silver medal at last year’s Olympics in showjumping. In another major milestone, Bruce and Patti just celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary on June 8.
