The couple, who are already parents to 15-month-old Presley, shared the news exclusively with People, revealing that their new bundle of joy is due this summer.
“We really wanted them to be close enough in age so they could have a lot of things in common and be best friends,” Young explained to the publication. “Tay had her sister close in age growing up, so we both felt strongly we wanted Presley to have the same.”
“Tay is so close with her sister, and that’s something we always knew we wanted for Presley,” he added. “We feel very blessed!”
