Lavender May Avery was born on April 22, Earth Day 2019. Following her birth, her parents and Godfather Zach Caspary shared pictures of her on social media, and 'Why Don't We' band members Daniel Seavey, Corbyn Besson, Zach Herron, and Jonah Marais congratulated their fellow band-mate Jack. According to the post her mother Gabriela made to announce her arrival, the "Little Earth Day baby" is supposed to be raised in a way that she values the day she was born and takes initiatives to save the earth.

Rise to Stardom
Lavender May Avery became an internet sensation just 20 days after her birth as her parents shared pictures of her on social media on Mother’s Day 2019. Her parents, Jack Avery and Gabriela Gonzalez, both teenagers, began dating about a year ago in 2018. Despite rumors of them dating, they tried their best to keep the relationship under the radar, and also kept the pregnancy a secret. However, both of them revealed the news of the arrival of baby Lavender May to their fans within three weeks of her birth.
Her father, Jack, posted a lengthy message on his Instagram on Mother's Day with a family picture in which the couple sat in the middle holding their daughter in their arms. In the post, he described how this "most humbling experience of my entire life" changed him for the better. He also thanked the mother of his child, Gabriela, as well as his own mother, Kristin, and Gabriela's mother, Lisa, for their selfless support, and wished them a Happy Mother's Day. He concluded the post stating, "I’m gonna show you the whole world and protect you forever." The next day, her mother also posted another picture of her taken in the hospital bed just after her birth. In the post, she wrote, "The gift of Life. What a beautiful gift God so graciously has given us." She also added that their "Little Earth Day baby" was "ready to save the earth". Also that day, Zach Caspary, Lavender May's Godfather and the photographer who took the pictures, shared another picture from the hospital and wrote, "I am beyond honored to be chosen as The Godfather to this beautiful baby girl!" and added that they were "going to be best friends". The images were circulated numerous times by various news outlets and tabloids in the next few days and made the infant girl a social media star even before she became one month old.
