Roy Orbison’s Newborn Great Granddaughter Already Rocking His Signature Glasses

Roy Orbison’s granddaughter Emily Orbison has welcomed a baby girl, and she’s already paying tribute to her late great grandpa.

The family posted the happy news with some adorable photos on the official Roy Orbison Twitter account Sunday afternoon (July 12).

“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Ruby Kate. She was born on June 20,2020 at 11:36am. Ruby is Roy Orbison’s first great grandchild. Welcome to the family, Ruby!! We love you more than anything,” the announcement said.

In the pictures, baby Emily joins the family tradition of wearing cool dark glasses — and looks pretty cute doing so.

Orbison, who passed away in 1988, had started wearing his trademark glasses while on a U.K. tour with the Beatles in 1963.

As his sons recounted in their book The Authorized Roy Orbison, “He had left his regular glasses on a plane, right before the tour. He had the dark glasses with him and decided to keep wearing them. Dad wasn’t able to see without glasses. When he got off the plane in England, people were taking pictures and that’s what they saw, Dad with the dark glasses.”

See the pictures of baby Emily below.
