Chad, whom he turned to for his new body art, was also evidently the man behind the tattoos under Post’s eyes reading ‘Always Tired.’
Post has been assiduously private about his love life, but he did announce in May that he was about to become a father.
‘I’m excited for this next chapter in my life, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and for since I could remember I was sad,’ he rhapsodized to TMZ. ‘Time to take care of my body and my family and friends, and spread as much love as we can every day.’

He shares his little bundle of joy with his fiancée, and has yet to publicly disclose either the baby’s name or her mother’s name.
Post let slip on The Howard Stern Show in June that his fiancée, who helped him overcome his alcoholism, had given birth.
In a recent GQ interview he shared that although fatherhood has been ‘great,’ he has found it difficult to be away from his baby while touring.

‘It’s really tough not being able to see her, but she’s coming out more often now. She’s huge, she’s super tall, and she’s such a legend and I’m just happy to see her. But it is heartbreaking having to leave and not be able to be with her all the time. ‘
He said lovingly that his daughter is’ so swaggy. We got her overalls, Realtree camo everything, some nice hoodies, some zip-ups. She’s so cool. She’s way cooler than me but she definitely took a little inspiration from me. ‘
Post has however been taken aback by her ‘blowouts. She will blow out sometimes and it’ll come right outside of her pants. The poop will just be dripping out and I’m like: “What the hell happened?” That’s how I know it definitely is my daughter – not that I have blowouts, but that I know my way around a toilet. ‘
