Brantley Gilbert‘s a big, tough guy, but there’s one thing that can make his eyes get a little misty these days: anticipating the arrival of his baby boy. In fact, he’s been this way ever since finding out his wife Amber is pregnant.
“I’m a little bit emotional about this stuff right now,” Brantley confesses in a statement from his label. “I can’t look at an ultrasound picture without crying. Only about that, that’s it. That is literally the one thing that may get a tear out of my eyes is this baby.”
Especially exciting for Brantley is when he gets to feel his son move in his wife’s belly. “It’s got to where I can feel him every now and then, like if he moves she’ll call me in there, and then I’ll put my hand on her belly, and I’ll wait for like 30 minutes and he don’t move at all.
“But there’s been a couple times when I’ve caught him moving. It’s awesome; we’re excited. We can’t wait.”
