Sam Hunt and his estranged wife Hannah Lee Fowler are reportedly expecting their first child together.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Hunt’s wife of five-years, Fowler, filed for divorce on Friday (Feb. 18), claiming that Hunt is “guilty of inappropriate marital conduct” and that he is also “guilty of adultery.”
The documents also unveiled that the couple are expecting their first child later this year.
Hunt and Fowler have never publicly revealed that they were expecting their first child together, however, the legal documents state that the “23” singer’s wife is due in May 2022.
In the documents, which were filed in the no-fault divorce state of Tennessee, Fowler asks for alimony, primary custody of their soon-to-be born child, as well as child support.
As per alimony, Fowler says she wants “transitional alimony, rehabilitative alimony, and alimony in the future.”
Fowler also requests that “the parties be awarded their respective separate property.”
Hunt previously opened up about wanting children with his wife during an interview on KISS Country 99.9 Miami’s TC & Dina.
“I hope so. We’ve been talking about it for a while, but we’ve really started thinking about it seriously here these past few months, so that’s on the agenda right now. And I’m hoping that we’ll have some good news sooner than later,” Hunt told the outlet at the time.
In July 2018, Hunt also told Entertainment Tonight that he had “baby fever” after watching his brother’s baby “grow up through pictures mostly,” which he said “escalated my baby fever a little bit.”
“I’ve always wanted to have lots of kids, so it’s not something new… I had two brothers; three [kids] has always been a number that works with me,” Hunt continued to tell ET.
He also added, that he may want to wait a little bit longer before having children as he explained, “I don’t know that I’m as responsible as an adult as my parents were, so I’m afraid of taking them on too quickly. I have some growing to do, so we’ll see.”
Hunt and Fowler first started dating in 2008 while the singer/songwriter was playing football for the University of Alabama. They eventually broke up but dated on and off for several years.
Fowler was the inspiration behind Hunt’s breakout album, Montevallo, which he named after her hometown.
Hunt tried to win Fowler back for countless months and he was eventually successful.
“I think last summer I went out [to Hawaii] about seven times in about three months, trying to talk to her about coming back,” Sam revealed in a 2017 interview with Entertainment Tonight. “And the seventh trip I convinced her.”
Hunt and Fowler remained tight-lipped about their relationship, but after they began popping up on each other’s Instagram feeds, fans assumed they were back on.
They confirmed their engagement in January 2017 and eventually wed on April 15, 2017, in Hunt’s hometown of Cedartown, Georgia.
