A certain celebrity couple just got a new task to tackle.
Country singer Jessie James has announced that she is pregnant, meaning that she and the NFL's Eric Decker are expecting their first baby, according to People.
“Excited to share some news with y’all," Jessie tweeted on September 21. "We are having a baby.” Hooray!
The couple — who got married in June in Colorado— are said to be expecting the baby in March. They are also set to star in the reality series Love and Other Contact Sports: Eric & Jessie, which is likely to debut later this year on E!.
“[The pregnancy] was a surprise at first, it wasn’t planned," Jessie admits. "But when we did find out, we both started crying and hugging each other."
So would they rather have a boy or a girl? "There’s no preference," she claims. "It’s cliché, but we’d be so happy with either one."
Apparently, Jessie has struggled a bit with morning sickness recently, but it hasn't been enough to dampen her spirits. “I’m just so happy to be pregnant and to become a new mommy, that’s taking over the feeling of being sick,” she says. Aww!
Jessie, 25, is a country singer whose debut album hit number 23 on the Billboard chart in 2009. Eric, 26, plays wide receiver for the Denver Broncos.
Congrats to the happy couple!
