Josh Turner was praying for a good song but ended up with an even better gift, he tells PEOPLE.
"I was in town writing songs one day and had been praying for something good to happen," he says. "We did write a song and it wasn't that great, but when I came home, my wife, Jennifer, and (2-year old son) Hampton were playing and she told me she was pregnant again. Man, I was speechless! It was like, 'Wow, we're doing this again!' "
The singer, who is up for an Academy of Country Music award in April, says that the idea of parenthood the second time around isn't nearly as daunting.
