Rascal Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus, 39, is expecting his first child in January with wife Allison. Allison is a presenter on CMT and former Miss Tennessee.
“I’m looking forward to hearing the pitter-patter of little feet around the house and all of that wonderful stuff,” DeMarcus reveals to People magazine. “I’m most looking forward to making wonderful memories – the first days of school, summertime with them, taking them to Disney World. I’m ready to be a father!”
Jay admits that he and his wife tried to get pregnant for several years, but it finally happened after they stopped trying so hard.
“I just want a healthy baby, so it doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl,” says DeMarcus. “But I would like to have a little boy if I had a say in it! I’d teach him how to play bass and piano and sing!”
Jay is heading out on vacation Wednesday to pamper Allison and celebrate their joyful news. Lucky gal! Looks like a new country baby is on the way – yeehaw!
