Brantley Gilbert is going to be a dad! He and his wife Amber are expecting a little one this year.
Doctors told them that in-vitro fertilization was their only hope at having a child, but they put the treatment on hold for a while. In February, Amber surprised Brantley on his tour bus with three positive pregnancy tests.
He tells People, “I think I stared at it for at least two minutes without saying anything because I was literally in shock. We’d been told it was just not in the cards, and I’m staring at this answer to many, many, many prayers.”
They'll reveal the gender at a party in a couple of weeks.

Meanwhile Us Weekly says that season 5 finalist Chris Daughtry will join the show, while other sources say that there's no truth to it.

Others who've reportedly been considered include Jennifer Hudson and season 1 champ Kelly Clarkson -- who signed on with The Voice instead.
Dierks Bentley orchestrated a reunion between Sergeant Steven Mendez and his sons at a meet-and-greet during a tour stop in Fresno, California. Sergeant Mendez has been overseas serving for almost a year.
He later brought the family onstage during the show. Dierks says, "I can’t begin to imagine the sacrifice of being away from your family for sometimes years. I love the fact that country music fans hold our military and their families in such high regard and always jump at the chance to say thank you. It was a really cool moment in the show, and a really special thing for me to be part of.”
