AceShowbiz - It will be a boy for Brantley Gilbert and wife Amber Cochran. According to a new report from PEOPLE, the country singer and his wife revealed the sex of their first child during a gender reveal party on Monday night, June 5.
"Everybody was crying. I turned around and I think that's when it hit me that everybody's wanted this for us as much as we did for so long," the 32-year-old hunk tells the publication of the event, which was attended by 40 guests including the couple's close pals and family.
"When the blue cloud went up, well, that made it even more real," the "One Hell of an Amen" hitmaker continues. "Now we know it's a little boy, and he's gonna have to get ready for a whole lot of love," he adds.
Brantley announced that he's going to be a dad in mid May. The singer/songwriter told PEOPLE at the time, "I'm not an emotional guy, but this has got me crying like a baby." He continued, "I'm pretty good around other folks now, but when I'm by myself, if I look at one of the pictures from the doctor's office, I lose a few tears."
He explained that the pregnancy was a total surprise. He and his wife had been trying for a baby almost since they married two years ago. "We'd been to see a fertility specialist, and two different folks that told me it would be close to a miracle if it happened without IVF," he said. "I'm not much of a quitter, but I was really, really frustrated."
