The song 'With Arms Wide Open' was written by Scott Stapp when he learned he was going to become a father. Just a little while after being with ex-wife, Hillaree, she broke the news to Scott. Scott sang the song to Hillaree's stomach during her pregnancy, and inside the delivery room where Scott's son, Jagger Michael Stapp, was born. Scott found the name 'Jagger' in a baby book. It means one who carries a message. Jagger was born on October 21, 1998.
