“We were skiing in Colorado a couple a months ago, we were on a ski lift and my wife was feeling very nauseous and we all kind of joked, ‘You’re probably pregnant,’ thinking that she was obviously not,” the country singer, 31, told Extra on Tuesday, May 11. “Two days later, we took a pregnancy test and there were two pink lines immediately.”

The “Marry Me” singer shared his wife’s pregnancy news during a Sunday, May 9, concert in Texas. Rhett went on to tell his Instagram followers: “Well … we are pregnant again. Tonight when I was on stage in Fort Worth about to play ‘To the Guys That Date My Girls,’ my wife talked to me (in my ear monitors) and said, ‘You can tell them if you want,’ so anyways, now you know. We are pumped to be having our fourth girl. Feel free to buy all the merch you want, knowing that all the proceeds are going straight to all these weddings I’ll be paying for one day! Love you so much @laur_akins we always wanted a big Thanksgiving table.”
