Brett Young, Wife Taylor Expecting First Child
Brett Young is going to be a dad! The country singer and his wife, Taylor, are expecting their first child.
The singer confirms to People that he and the former Taylor Mills are expecting a child in the early fall.
“We have always shared the same heart for wanting a family,” Young says. “I love knowing that we get to give this little one an amazing life, and I just can’t wait for the future ahead of us as a family. We are so blessed!”
The couple married in November of 2018, and they found out they were already parents-to-be early in February. The couple had flown to Las Vegas over Super Bowl weekend to spend time with friends and family when Taylor decided to take a pregnancy test "on a whim," she tells People.

“I was in shock when it read positive. I really just didn’t believe what I was seeing,” she says. “After it sunk in, I was so happy and so overwhelmed that I just started crying — happy tears of course! Brett and I hugged, kissed and talked for hours about how long we had been wanting this and how excited we are to become parents.”
Young was already talking about having kids in December of 2018, just a month after the couple wed.
“We are really excited about having kids sometime soon,” the 2017 Taste of Country RISER told us. "We aren’t putting pressure on ourselves, but we are definitely ready for it to happen.”
Taylor tells People that Young is great with kids, and "he’ll be an incredible dad. I think being a father will come so naturally to him. He’s kind, patient, and a good listener, but he’s also a goofball and isn’t afraid to have fun."
Young released his second album, Ticket to L.A., in December of 2018, and he's headed out on the road on Kelsea Ballerini's Miss Me More Tour beginning April 11, but his wife isn't worried about how they will work around his busy schedule.
"Family is so important to both of us, so I don’t have a single doubt in my mind that he will be a very present and involved father and that our child and family will always come first," she says.
Young says his wife will be "the best mom on the planet."
He knows a lot of new emotions are on the way.
"I, personally, can’t wait to see Taylor hold our little one for the first time. I'm screwed!" Young says with a laugh.
