ACM award-winning singer and songwriter Brett Young is going to be a dad!! And he's in good company!
He and wife Taylor are joining the ever-expanding list of new parents and parents-to-be among the celebrities in the music entertainment industry. Check it out:
Jessica Simpson, Brantley Gilbert, Alanis Morissette, Kanye West, Robin Thicke, Carrie Underwood, and Jason Aldean have all welcomed or will soon welcome a new little darling into their families. And that doesn't even include the numerous television, movie, and sports stars (Michael Phelps) who are also in 'the family way.'
Young and wife Taylor, 31, shared the exciting news in an exclusive interview with People, and the joy is simply bubbling out of them!
“We have always shared the same heart for wanting a family,” Young, 38, shares “I love knowing that we get to give this little one an amazing life, and I just can’t wait for the future ahead of us as a family. We are so blessed!”
Brett and Taylor reveal that the baby will make his or her appearance in the Fall.
The couple tied the knot in November of last year, but have been together for ten years. Once they made it official, they made no secret of the fact that they wanted to start their family “sooner rather than later.”
In fact, in a revealing interview with People in December, the bride said exactly that.
“Starting that next chapter in our lives — kids, starting our own family — and being able to experience that together is what really makes me the most excited,” Taylor raved of married life.
In March, on the occasion of Brett’s birthday, Taylor posted a cryptic message to him on Instagram - accompanied by an adorable snap of the love birds.
Now that we know the secret they were keeping at the time, is that a tiny hint we see in her message?
“Happiest birthday to the love of my life!!! Here’s to another life-changing and incredible year ahead.
“I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for you! You are one special human. I love you to the moon and back!
“Let the celebrations begin! I love you, Brett Charles Young!”
The year is sure off to a great start. Brett snagged the “New Male Vocalist of the Year” award at the 2018 ACM ceremony on April seventh and was on the slate to perform at this year’s afterparty. Then, news about the baby…
Brett and Taylor are definitely members of the ‘mutual admiration society’ as they both rave about the other’s parenting potential.
Taylor says “Brett is so good with kids — he’ll be an incredible dad.”
“I think being a father will come so naturally to him. He’s kind, patient, and a good listener, but he’s also a goofball and isn’t afraid to have fun.”
Then Brett returns the sweet compliment. “This child will have such an incredible mother — there is absolutely no doubt that she will be the best mom on the planet.
“I, personally, can’t wait to see Taylor hold our little one for the first time.”
With that kind of unity and devotion, there's no doubt that this is one lucky little bambino. Please join us in wishing Brett and Taylor all the best as they await the blessed event in early Fall.
