Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley, Wife Cassie Announce Pregnancy

Latest "Baby Antebellum" Expected to Arrive Early Next Year

A boy or a girl? Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and his wife Cassie McConnell don’t know which to expect just yet, but the gorgeous couple confirm they’re expecting their first bundle of joy.

Cassie posted the exciting news on her Womanista blog earlier today, saying, “Charles and I are SO EXCITED to share with y’all that we are expecting a baby!” and revealing that the two are “so happy we can hardly stand it. Like ecstatic and I’m crying even as I type those words!”

The little lady or little gent is due in February and will complete the Lady Antebellum baby pool (at least the “first” round of babies) as bandmates Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood are already first-time parents. Scott’s daughter Eisele Kaye recently turned 2, and Haywood’s son Cash Van is about to celebrate his first birthday next month.

Baby Kelley is going to have the coolest “aunt” and “uncle” and playmates in country music.

Yes, so much love for this little one is already in the air. On her blog, which I urge you to go read, Kelley’s wife reveals the road to this magnificent moment was not an easy one for the couple and shares details of their struggle to start a family. And she says it in a way that will truly touch your heart.

What beautiful news for such a beautiful couple. Congratulations, you two.
