Sharing the story behind how she learned about her surprise pregnancy, Shannon Haley claims she only discovered the happy news while seeking treatment for a bout of the flu.

AceShowbiz - Country music stars Shannon Haley and Ryan Michaels are expecting their first child.

The mother-to-be, who performs with her husband as Haley & Michaels, is due in October, but reveals the pregnancy came as a complete surprise, because she only discovered the happy news while seeking treatment for a bout of the flu back in January.

"They (doctors) did a bunch of tests, and one of those tests was a pregnancy test just to be safe," Haley told People.com.

The medic ended up sharing her diagnoses by telling her, "You have the flu - and you're pregnant!."

Haley recalled, "It was this rush of complete joy that instantly hit me. But Ryan just kept saying, 'We are? We are...?'."

"I was so shocked," Michaels explained. "The thing is, we had certainly talked this year about having a baby, but it was the furthest thing from our minds when we went to the clinic, and we hadn't really been trying very long."

The couple wed in 2015.
