Lady Antebellum is getting a little bigger, and we couldn't be more excited! The band's singer and guitar player, Charles Kelley, is expecting his first child with wife, Cassie McConnell Kelley.
Cassie is the founder of Womanista.com, a lifestyle and inspirational blog for women, and shared the news on her site. She shared their story, saying, "Charles and I are SO BEYOND EXCITED to share with y’all that we are expecting a baby! He or she is due in February and we are so happy we can hardly stand it. Like, ecstatic and I’m crying even as I type those words!"
Ah! We can hardly stand it either!
We had a feeling something was up when Charles shared this mysterious photo on his Instagram,
.... But we were still surprised as ever when we read the official news!
Charles and Cassie married in 2009, and knew that they wanted to start a family as soon as possible! Cassie expressed through her blog that the couple had some difficulty along the way to parenthood, but they said they never gave up hope. And what a blessing has come their way! Cassie wrote,
We never stopped hoping though. And I want to give a special shout out to my husband, Charles, for being the most incredible human. His love, support, passion for our marriage and our future children has never, EVER waivered, even when the frustration seemed insurmountable. I am so lucky to have a best friend and partner in life like him, and our child couldn’t have scored a better dad!
So sweet! We're so happy for Charles and Cassie!
Congratulations to the parents-to-be, and we can't wait to see the adorable bundle of joy!
