It is not known though if the music star is expecting a baby boy or girl and when the infant is due to be delivered.
John Rich of country music duo Big & Rich is about to become a father. His wife, Joan, is pregnant with their first child. The Boot is the first to report the pregnancy news and has obtained a confirmation on the matter from the singer's representatives.
No mention is made on how months along Joan has been carrying the baby. It is also not known if the expectant parents have found out the baby's sex and its due date.
John Rich was married to Joan, a former model who runs a Houston modeling agency, last December at Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium after quietly dating her for more than five years. The nuptials came as a surprise to fans and friends alike as the pair had never confirmed their engagement.
Beside working with partner Big Kenny of Big & Rich, John also has a solo career. In March this year, he released his second studio album "Son of a Preacher Man".
