Singer Michelle Branch is expecting a baby with her new fiance, rocker Patrick Carney.
The Breathe star became engaged to The Black Keys drummer last summer (Jul17), when she turned 34, and on Thursday (08Feb18), she revealed the couple is having a baby.
“Well, we were just about to send out Save The Dates for our wedding in May when we got this little surprise,” the mother-to-be wrote beside an Instagram picture of her sonogram.
“Baby Carney is happening this summer and Patrick and I couldn’t be more excited!”
The child will be the couple’s first together, although Michelle is also mum to 12-year-old Owen – her daughter from her marriage to ex-husband Teddy Landau.
Michelle and Patrick began dating in 2015 after falling in love while collaborating on songs for Branch’s 2017 album, Hopeless Romantic.
She previously used her Instagram account to share the news of the couple’s engagement.
Sharing a picture of her Art Deco style engagement ring, she wrote, “Thank you for all the birthday love and wishes. Last night, right before I blew out my candles, @officerpatrickcarney asked me to marry him and then I had nothing left to wish for… 34 might be the best year yet.”
