Announcing the happy news, the 'Two Pink Lines' singer shares that he and his wife of three years, Katherine, are very excited and looking forward to becoming parents.
Country star Eric Church is set to become a first-time father, his wife, Katherine, is pregnant. The "Love Your Love the Most" singer and his wife wed in 2009 and they will become parents this autumn 2011.
A statement from Church, obtained by CMT.com, reads, "Katherine and I are very excited and are looking forward to becoming parents. This year has gotten off to an amazing start for us, and this news has made it so much better than we could have ever anticipated."
Back in 2006, Eric has had a hit single about the anxiety surrounding a pregnancy test titled "Two Pink Lines". At the CMA Songwriters series last year, he confessed, "It's a personal song for me, because two pink lines happened to me when I was unmarried and a teenager."
"When I first played this for my mom, I was expecting her to be really bothered by it. She goes, 'I love that song," he continued to recall. "Why are you singing about two pink lions?' I said, 'Mom, I happen to love lions; I'm a big cat fan.' It took her a long time to figure it out."
