It’s been a big year for Mo Pitney, and now he has one more incredible milestone to celebrate.
The 23-year-old country singer and his wife Emily are expecting their first child. The news of their upcoming arrival was revealed in an adorable photoshoot shared by Pitney’s grandmother. It looks like the couple have already started shopping for the little one’s wardrobe.
This exciting news follows the announcement of Pitney’s debut album, Behind This Guitar, which is set for release on Oct. 7. The Illinois native has been earning praise since the release of his 2014 debut single, “Country.” The song, as well as his followup single, “Boy & a Girl Thing,” were well-received on country radio. His traditionally-inspired sound has gained a strong fanbase and a budding relationship with the Grand Ole Opry.
Mo and Emily were married on March 5 in a private ceremony in Emily’s hometown of Carbondale, Ill.
With a little one on the way and a brand new album about to released, the Pitney family is sure to have a busy rest of the year. Still, I’m sure they wouldn’t have it any other way. Congratulations to the happy couple!
