Brantley Gilbert, Wife Amber Share Baby News

"When I'm By Myself, I Lose a Few Tears"

If you saw Brantley Gilbert at his February concert in Louisville, Kentucky, you might have noticed that he was a little more emotional than usual.

Because that’s the night he found out his wife Amber was pregnant. According to People magazine, Amber surprised her husband on his tour bus before the show.

“She handed me a box and there were three pregnancy tests in there and all of them were positive. I think I stared at it for at least two minutes without saying anything because I was literally in shock. We’d been told it was just not in the cards, and I’m staring at this answer to many, many, many prayers,” Gilbert said.

The news has him crying like a baby, he added.

“I’m pretty good around other folks now, but when I’m by myself, if I look at one of the pictures from the doctor’s office,” he said, “I lose a few tears.”

The Gilberts have been married almost two years, and have been trying to conceive ever since. They’d been to a fertility specialist, and were told that it was unlikely that Amber would get pregnant without in vitro fertilization.

They plan to raise the baby — their first — in their hometown outside Jefferson, Georgia.

“In the middle of a day, I’ll find myself smiling about nothing,” he said.
