Bryan’s family is hopping with joy this holiday season.
41-year-old country star surprised his wife Caroline with two baby kangaroos

“Drunk on You” singer joked about gifting his bride with
“designer purses” before presenting her with the little marsupials in

“2 Live Roo and Roo Tang Clan are living their best life,” she
captioned the shot. “Seriously…real names are Margo and Todd. They are
adjusting perfectly [and] are beyond sweet and precious.”
not everyone was happy about Luke’s unusual Christmas gift. PETA Vice President
Colleen O’Brien released a statement on Friday and urged the musician to send
the kangaroos to a sanctuary.
kangaroos belong in their mothers’ pouches, not in gift bags,” she wrote.
“These joeys have complex needs, including specialized diets and room to
roam—they are not toys and will only become more difficult to care for as they
grow older. PETA is calling for an investigation into where these kangaroos
came from and stands ready to help Luke Bryan right this wrong and move these
vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary.”
