Baby No 2 On The Way for Joe Nichols and Wife Heather!
Excitement is in the air! 'Sunny and 75' singer Joe Nichols and wife Heather are expecting their second child!
The 37-year-old singer shared the news on Twitter, Thursday, with his fans. "Aaaaaaand we're pregnant again! Another baby Nichols on the way in 2014!" he said.
Confirming the happy news to PEOPLE, the singer's rep said, "Joe, Heather and Dylan are very excited to be welcoming a new baby by summer."
The baby will be younger sibling to Joe and Heather's 20-month-old daughter, Dylan River. This will be third child for Joe. He is also dad to a teenage daughter Ashelyn, 15.
The news came a s pleasant surprise to the couple who have been facing difficulties conceiving. According to the PEOPLE magazine, Heather suffers from an auto-immune condition that led to five miscarriages before fertility treatments. The couple contacted several specialists to help Heather deliver Dylan.
"It's like my body was allergic to babies, really," she said. "Every time I would get pregnant, I would immediately start fighting the pregnancy. My body would treat the baby as if it was a cold or a virus."
The couple will be celebrating their daughter's second birthday this April. "People say you don't know what it's like to be a parent until you are one," Nichols told PEOPLE Country last fall. "And that's true - you can't fully grasp true love until you have children. There's a feeling of watching your heart and your soul outside your body, outside of you."
