Ian gushed over Delta to Entertainment Tonight, saying that he's already a Duke basketball fan like his parents.

"He watched his first Duke football game and I sang him 'You Are the Best Thing' by Ray LaMontagne to welcome him into our family," Ian said.

Ian and Rebecca met while studying at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. They married in 2014 and Rebecca now serves as Delta Rae's lawyer.

Ian sings and plays guitar for the band, which is also made up of his brother and sister, Eric and Brittany, along with Elizabeth Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson.

The band is currently on its A Long And Happy Life Summer Tour (in support of their EP of the same name), which continues Oct. 15 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
