You can add another country couple to the new parent list! Country’s bad boy, Brantley Gilbert,32, and his wife Amber, just announced that they’re expecting their first child together due sometime in November. This baby comes as a miracle for the couple. Gilbert and his wife have been married since June 2015 and started trying for children right away, but the couple struggled for many years with fertility problems.
The couple sat down with People and shared the details of how they went to two different fertility specialist, and both said “it would be close to a miracle if it happened without IVF.” Gilbert and his wife both were hesitate on trying IVF, and so they held their hopes out for a little bit more. Then in February while Gilbert was on the road, Amber surprised him before his show, with a box of three positive pregnancy test!!
The country couple go way back. Amber, a former school teacher, and the inspiration for songs like “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” and “More Than the Miles,” and several others, dated on and off during their teen years. They reconnected after Gilbert broke up from fellow country singer Jana Kramer. Gilbert, who will be five years sober on December 18, credits his wife and future baby to helping him stay sober. Gilbert tells People, “I’ve never been more in love with her!”
The couple said they will find out the sex of the baby at a gender reveal party soon and plan to raise their son or daughter where they currently live right outside of Jefferson, Georgia. All of us at WYCD couldn’t be happier for the couple and can’t wait to find out what couple is having!
