Tyler Hubbard is sharing his secrets to good parenting…good sex!

During the March 17 episode of his wife Hayley Hubbard's Dear Media podcast titled Meaning Full Living, the Florida Georgia Line member talked about how prioritizing "adult time" is essential while raising children.

"It's part of connecting, you know, intimacy is part of a strong marriage. A strong marriage leads to strong parenting," he explained. "And so, yeah, it's important. And it's definitely something to talk about in this."

The County music singer continued, "Making that a priority and just making time to connect, you know, even if, even if I remember some nights, we just didn't have sex. We were like, no, let's just lay here and watch a movie. You know, hold hands or kind of hold each other and, just a way to connect, you know? So, I feel like we've been pretty intentional about it, but we can definitely feel that the tension building as, when we're not intentional about, you know, being intimate with each other and making time for it."

The couple shares three children: Olivia Rose, 3, Luca Reed,18-month-old and 5-month-old Atlas Roy.

Tyler also opened up about the difficulty they had getting intimate with each other following the birth of their youngest child in September.

"We struggled having sex because—and probably not for what you think we struggled," he began. "But now, I was basically, I don't know the proper term, but I was—I couldn't walk for like four months. I was injured and, and post-surgery, and then Hayley was in the middle of her pregnancy."

Hayley added, "It's not all of a marriage, but it is a huge part of marriage. And I think that's something to talk about with parents because it's hard, you're emotionally exhausted in those early phases of parenting. You're physically exhausted. All of those things and in sex is kind of the last thing you want to make time for, but it is important. And I think that that's something that we've tried to focus on and sometimes when, what has been awhile and we're like, OK—we. We have to make time for this because it is so crucial."
