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.
