Scotty McCreery and his wife Gabi McCreery are expecting their first child together!
The “Damn Strait” singer revealed the news exclusively with People on Tuesday, June 21, sharing that their new addition will be arriving this November.
McCreery also revealed their baby’s gender with the outlet. “We got a little man on the way,” the North Carolina native said with a smile.
“I was the only boy on both sides of my family, the last McCreery boy out there,” McCreery told the outlet. “Gabi’s from two sisters in her family, so I just figured it would be a girl. But we got a surprise of a boy.”
The country hitmaker is looking forward to introducing his son to sports and all the precious father/son moments that they will share together.
“I grew up playing sports, so getting to introduce him to baseball, which was my first love right there with music, and golf are just little things that [will be great],” McCreery said.
McCreery also told PEOPLE that he and Gabi have “always talked about” having children together.
“We always knew we wanted kids, but we always knew we wanted the first few years to travel and have time on the road, to see things and experience life,” he shared. “We’ve gotten to live a lot of life and do some cool things, so it seems like now’s a good time to settle down a little and expand the family.”
Scotty and Gabi, who reside in North Carolina, have known each other since Kindergarten. The couple’s love story is straight out of a fairy tale as Gabi used to doodle hearts and “Mrs. Gabi McCreery” in her diary.
The couple wed in June of 2018 and added their dog, Moose, to their family in early 2019.
“The best day of my life was June 16, 2018, the day me and my wife got married,” McCreery recently told Skip Clark on the Skip Happens podcast. “We dated for years since 2012, so I knew for a long time she was the one. That was just an incredible day.”
