Dan + Shay’s Shay Mooney Reveals He’s Lost Almost 50 Lbs.

Shay Mooney is debuting a new look!


The Dan + Shay singer, 30, shared on his Instagram Stories Thursday that he has lost nearly 50 pounds in the last five months after refocusing on his diet and adding a walking and weight-training routine to his schedule.


“Thank you guys so much for all your kind words about me looking healthy,” Mooney wrote in a post. “Really means a lot.”


He continued, “Been a little over 5 months I believe and I’m down almost 50lbs. For those asking: Eating clean/not drinking alcohol and walking 7 miles a day. And some weights. That’s it!”


The “Speechless” singer had a bit more to say about his new way of life, adding that he’s “literally never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually.”


“If you’re looking for a sign…” he concluded, adding an emoji of a wooden sign and a heart. “Love y’all.”

Also on Thursday, the Grammy winner showed off his streamlined physique while posing with his elder son, Asher James, 5.


“Life gets better every day ❤️,” he wrote along with a carousel of images of the two posing in their kitchen, along with the family dog.

His new look drew a slew of compliments from fellow country musicians and other followers, including Chris Lane who commented with a fire emoji. Tyler Rich wrote “Looking lean brother 💪🏼” and Morgan Wallen said, “Man done got skinny on em!!!”





There is one area in Mooney’s life where he is expanding, though.


The country star — who shares Asher and son Ames Alexander, 2½, with wife Hannah — announced with Hannah in August that they are expecting their third baby, another son, this winter.

In a joint post at the time, Hannah talked to Asher and Ames about whether they thought they were getting a baby brother or baby sister. Both boys shared that they wanted a girl, but then she revealed the sex of their little one on the way.


“I wanted a sister,” Asher hilariously said after hearing the news.


In another video shared on the Dan + Shay singer’s Instagram Story, the parents talked to Ames about the new baby as he watched TV. When they asked him if he was excited to be a big brother, he candidly replied, “Noooo.”
