The popular country music singer from the group Lady Antebellum announced recently that she was with child via the band’s Facebook page.

Her husband and drummer of Lady Antebellum, Chris Tyrrell, is the father of the child. The announcement on Facebook stated that the two are having a baby and that this was a blessing.

“Chris & I are excited to announce that our Christmas gift has arrived a little early this year!” Scott posted on her Facebook page. “We are having a BABY! We feel so blessed!!!”

It appears that while even though she might be pregnant, the band does not show signs of slowing down at all to accommodate this new little member to the group. While they are currently on a break of sorts for the holiday season, they will soon resume full touring in February starting with a rodeo in San Antonio TX in 2013.

In an effort to promote their new Christmas album, and perhaps share some warm news about their own “Christmas gift” as Hillary Scott calls the baby, the band will be performing at the CMA’s Country Christmas special the 20th of this month and will resume touring in February, 2013 at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo in San Antonio, TX on February 16, 2013.
