Some exciting news is coming from Brantley Gilbert and his wife, Amber, this week. After a long battle with infertility, the couple just announced that they are pregnant! Their family’s new addition is expected to enter the world in November.
Gilbert is already making plans for his future son or daughter, but he’s hoping his wife is pregnant with a boy. Gilbert worries that he won’t be able to handle the pressure if the couple is pregnant with a daughter. Gilbert joked to People that he would wind up in jail if their baby wound up being a girl because of the idea of her dating someone:
“You hear people say that have daughters, ‘Oh, I’ll go to jail,'” he said. “But no, I really will – I’ll go to prison. If a dude comes up my driveway that looks, talks acts anything like me I’m going to stab him as many times as humanly possible.”
Brantley Gilbert and his wife have been wanting this pregnancy for a long time. During their announcement, they said that they had been trying to get pregnant for two years. When they did find that they were pregnant, they had a hard time keeping it a secret. However, due to their struggles, they waited until after their first trimester to make the announcement.
Over the past few years, Gilbert’s life has gone through a lot of changes. Just five years ago, he was struggling with a drinking problem that had caused him issues with his relationship. Thankfully, Gilbert gave that all up, married his high school sweetheart and is now expecting a baby with her.
Along with starting a new family, Gilbert is busy with his music career. In June, he will be starting a tour for the summer. The tour will take him across the country and through cities like Tampa, FL, Atlantic City, NJ, and Cleveland, OH, among many others. It will wrap up the end of September, just in time for the star to enjoy the rest of his wife’s pregnancy. You can check out his full dates, here.
