Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott is pregnant.
The popular country superstar Scott made the announcement via Twitter on Friday that her and husband Chris Tyrrell are pregnant with their first child, reports People Magazine.
The female vocalist for Lady Antebellum met future husband Tyrell while they were in college. They lost touch, but reconnected in 2010 during Tim McGraw’s Southern Voice tour. Hillary Scott and Chris Tyrell began dating again in July of that year, notes The Huffington Post. The couple became engaged on July 4, 2011.
Hillary Scott and Chris Tyrrell exchanged their vows and became man and wife on January 7 of this year in upstate New York. The pregnant Lady Antebellum singer stated of her husband:
“Everything is brighter. Everything has a deeper meaning. He makes me feel more comfortable in my own skin.”
Hillary Scott’s pregnancy announcement is not the first time she has talked about children this week. The band announced on Monday that they would be starting a new charity called LadyAID. The charity will focus on children’s hospitals, though it will also contribute to other charitable causes.
Lady Antebellum’s hit song “Just A Kiss” was inspired by the couple’s relationship when they first became romantically involved.
The new baby will be the first for both Scott and her husband, though it is not the first addition to their growing family. The couple adopted a dog named Hobbs over the summer. Hillary Scott announced her pregnancy on her Twitter account, writing:
Chris & I are excited to announce that our Christmas gift has arrived a little early this year! We are having a BABY! We feel so blessed!!!
