Monroe and Danks, a former baseball player for the Atlanta Braves, were married in 2013. The pair announced their pregnancy on Christmas Day 2016 by posting an ultrasound picture on their social media pages.

Monroe is taking some time off the road to make some memories with her new son. But that doesn’t mean she’s stepping away from music for good. Her Pistol Annies bandmate and longtime friend Miranda Lambert recently revealed that the group is planning on dropping new music next year.
