Cody revealed during the podcast that the couple welcomed their daughter Maverick Nickson via cesarean delivery. His wife underwent an emergency C-section after she experienced high blood pressure.

The arrival of the new bundle of joy was also confirmed by the newborn's Instagram account, which was already created months before her birth.

The caption of a photo of the newborn on the social media page, which has already more than 51 thousand fan followers, reads, "Hi world!"
