Huge congratulations are in order for Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and his wife, Cassie, who announced today that they’re expecting. The newest Baby Antebellum is due in February.
Cassie took to her blog, Womanista, to share the exciting news and this oh-so-adorable photo.
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!
She shares that it wasn’t an easy journey for the couple:
We started trying to conceive our child a few years ago without any luck – many months went by with negative pregnancy tests and a lot of shared frustration. I don’t know about other moms (or future moms!) out there but I just assumed that when we wanted to start a family, it would happen just like that. Well, it didn’t. We went through several years of trying before finally seeing our fertility doctor in Nashville this past November. We answered lots of questions about family history and did lots of tests, some easy and some painful (YALL! That dye test, OMG. Just google it if you don’t know what it is (or don’t.) My nurse informed me that it would feel like “light cramping”. Umm, no. Anyway…) When all was said & done our doctor (Dr. Abby Eblen! She is fabulous, by the way) informed us that we had about a 1% chance of conceiving a child naturally. Yeah. 1%. As far as percentages go, that’s not awesome.
However, it all worked out like it was supposed to:
I woke up one morning in June and there it was, a positive pregnancy test. I was in shock. Happy shock, but shock. Our baby decided to join our family in God’s time, which is always right.
The new Lady Antebaby will join Hillary Scott’s daughter, Eisele, and Dave Haywood’s son, Cash, as the third band tot.
Huge congrats to the future mom & dad!
