The youngster is surrounded by ample love from both of his parents, who make sure he gets the best life has to offer.

Interestingly, William is also taking to acting just like his mother. The young lad is said to have joined the drama club in his high school. He is expected to finish high school by 2025, and by then, he must have made up his mind about the career path to follow. He might also decide to go to college before launching his career. William loves watching movies, and his favorite actor and actress are Johnny Depp and Emma Watson.
In addition to music and movies, William also has interests in sports like soccer, table tennis, and basketball. Whatever he chooses in the near future, Huckleberry has supportive parents to back him up. Meanwhile, he loves animals and spends ample time with them on the family ranch in Nashville.
