After surprising fans with the news that they were expecting their third child earlier this month, Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and his wife, Hayley, recently revealed the baby’s gender while vacationing in Africa.

With their daughter, Olivia, in tow and FGL’s Brian Kelley and his wife, Brittney looking on, Tyler and Hayley enlisted the help of an elephant at Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya to reveal the baby’s gender. Sharing the reveal exclusively with PEOPLE, the couple explained that they received the news that they were expecting another baby boy when an elephant wearing a blue scarf came to them while visiting the animal sanctuary.

Both Tyler and Hayley are thrilled to welcome another boy to their family.

“Liv is the perfect older sister and we can’t wait to see her with two little brothers to look after,” Tyler shared with PEOPLE. “Plus, now I’ll have two ridin’ buddies!”

Tyler and Hayley are already parents to Olivia Rose, 2, and Luca Reed, 6 months. Their third child came as a surprise, but the couple couldn’t be more excited.

“We were pretty surprised to find out we’re expecting, but having three children is something Tyler and I have always dreamed of. God’s timing is perfect!” Hayley said.

Florida Georgia Line is scheduled to join Kenny Chesney on the Chillaxification 2020 Tour this summer, however, several of those dates have been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
