It's a Country Baby Boom! See All the Nashville Couples Expecting Right Now
After nearly two years of trying — and seeing a fertility specialist who told them it would be "close to a miracle" to get pregnant naturally — Gilbert and wife Amber announced their first pregnancy to PEOPLE in May. "I'm not an emotional guy, but this has got me crying like a baby," the singer told PEOPLE. "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, I lose a few tears." The couple is due in November.

All of the moments of heartache were followed by the biggest blessing in the entire world!! We will never take one moment for granted & can’t wait to meet you, sweet baby!!!”

"Our hearts are exploding with happiness for y'all to meet our new baby who we are bringing home from Africa soon who is also going to have a little brother or sister," Lauren's Instagram announcement read. "Because, SURPRISE! there's a sweet baby in my belly too." In May, they introduced daughter Willa Gray Akins after bringing her home from Uganda.
