Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum and his wife, Cassie, are expecting their first baby.

Cassie announced the news in a blog post for Womanista, opening up about the couple's two-year struggle to conceive. "I don't know about other moms (or future moms!) out there but I just assumed that when we wanted to start a family, it would happen just like that. Well, it didn't," she wrote. "We went through several years of trying before finally seeing our fertility doctor in Nashville this past November."

The proud future dad shared his wife's blog post early Friday (Aug. 7) on Twitter:
