Eric Church and wife Katherine are expecting first child

Eric Church and his wife, Katherine, are expecting!

“We’re still new at it and still in shock,” Eric told The Boot of their news that they are having their first child in October.

How does the country singer feel about becoming a dad?

“I love it, but it’s scary,” he said. “I think it’s great. I was joking with somebody, I put out a song called ‘Two Pink Lines’ as the second single and it all comes back around.”

How did his wife tell him she was pregnant?  He came back from the grocer store and she said,

“‘Honey I’ve got something for you,’ and she handed me the pregnancy test. What was funny is I stood there, of course, like every guy married or not, it’s always a moment,” Church explained.

“I kind of stood there and I had no response. She goes, ‘Well?’  Then she handed me the other one and then … she handed me the third one. She had taken three because she didn’t believe it. She said, ‘I can tell you don’t believe it either,’ so I started laughing. We were happy. It wasn’t as if it wasn’t planned. We just weren’t really trying. We were just letting it happen, so it’s been a cool thing.”

With the couple find out the sex of the baby?

Oh yes!  “My wife is a planner,” he says.

“I’m excited. I really am. I was ready. It felt like the next thing for us. I’m glad it came when our career was a little more stable.”

Congratulations to them!
