Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and drummer Chris Tyrrell, who became engaged on Independence Day in 2011 and married Jan. 7 in upstate New York, are now expecting a child.
"Chris & I are excited to announce that our Christmas gift has arrived a little early this year! We are having a BABY!" she wrote on Twitter Friday. "We feel so blessed!!!"
"Everything is brighter. Everything has a deeper meaning," Scott, 26, previously said of her new husband. "He makes me feel more comfortable in my own skin."
Scott has certainly had kids on the brain: On Monday, the band announced they are starting a new charity called LadyAID, which will focus on children's hospitals and as well as other charitable causes.
Scott and Tyrrell met while they were in college, though things didn't turn romantic until later. Lady Antebellum's song, "Just A Kiss," was inspired by Scott and Tyrrell's relationship when they first began dating.
