Granger Smith and his wife Amber are expecting their third child this spring. The couple made the surprise announcement during their appearance at the 51st annual Academy of Country Music Awards on April 3.
The latest addition to the Smith family is due to arrive on May 16. The couple plans to wait to find out if the child is a girl or a boy until its arrival, but Smith predicts that another boy will join their 4-year-old daughter London and 2-year-old son Lincoln.
“This baby has a slow heartbeat, and Amber is carrying kind of lower… all indications of boy,” Granger told Taste of Country. After going through the ordeal of childbirth twice already, Smith seems ready for all of the anticipation to be over.
“At first you’re like, ‘Oh, this is so great! We’ll think of names.’ And then you’re like, ‘Okay, just get this baby out,” he joked. Although he’s well aware of the stress and pain that the baby’s arrival means for his wife, he says he’s personally not looking forward to the uncertainty of the big day.
“The day of the birth, everyone goes, ‘Greatest day of your life, right?’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s horrible,’” he remarked.
Hopefully the arrival of their new bundle of joy will be smooth and relatively stress-free. Congrats to the happy couple!
