Brantley Gilbert is a well know rough and tough guy, but his life is about to change and for him and it’s been a long time coming.
Gilbert and his wife, Amber, are expecting their first child. Married back in 2015, the couple decided to consult doctors after trying to have children had proved unsuccessful.
“We’d been to see a fertility specialist and two different folks that told me it would be close to a miracle if it happened without IVF,” Gilbert said, via PEOPLE.
He admits it was a frustrating time and his wife was hesitant about starting in vitro fertilization. Luckily, the couple’s dreams came true and they will be welcoming their first child in November.
Gilbert’s wife told him the good news while he was on tour.
“She handed me a box and there were three pregnancy tests in there and all of them were positive… I think I stared at it for at least two minutes without saying anything because I was literally in shock,” he said. “We’d been told it was just not in the cards, and I’m staring at this answer to many, many, many prayers.”
