Emerson Drive frontman Brad Mates has announced that he and wife Jana are expecting their first child – a boy!
The 31-year-old country crooner, whose life as a father will begin in April, confirmed the happy news to CMT last week, saying that “[becoming a dad] is a little surreal right now”:
I still don’t believe that we’re going to be parents soon. I walk around the house now and see all these new toys, clothes, bottles, diapers, nursery, and it’s like… where is the baby??? So until we bring him home, I can only wonder how it’s all going to feel. Jana & I are so excited for the baggy eyes and sleepless nights ahead…..ohhhh no!!!
Brad and Jana, who married in October 2008, have chosen the name Tyler for their newest addition.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
