ICYMI: Brantley Gilbert, Wife Amber Add To Coming Baby List

Dust off those onesies – a whole slew of country music babies appears to be upon us.

Country music bad boy Brantley Gilbert and wife Amber just revealed to People that they're expecting their first child. This of course comes on the heels of Thomas Rhett's news that he and wife Lauren have adopted and are also expecting, and yet other news that Lee Brice and wife Sara have one on the way, as do LoCash's Chris Lucas and wife Kaitlyn.

"I'm not an emotional guy, but this has got me crying like a baby," Gilbert told the publication of he and Amber's big news. "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’' office, I lose a few tears."

Part of the reason, Brantley revealed, is that he and Amber had been trying for the last two years. "We'd been to see a fertility specialist, and two different folks that told me it would be close to a miracle if it happened without IVF," he explained. "I'm not much of a quitter, but I was really, really frustrated." Read all about their journey here. Brantley and Amber have known each other since childhood. They married in 2015.
