AceShowbiz - Jon Pardi is going to be a first-time father. Revealing that he and wife Summer are currently expecting their first child together, the "Dirt on My Boots" crooner said he's "excited" to meet the baby.
The 37-year-old broke the news in an interview with [u=https://people.com/parents/jon-pardi-wife-summer-pregnant-expecting-first-baby/ PEOPLE[u]. "I'm ready to start a new adventure with my wonderful wife Summer and our new little one - Pardi of three!" he gushed. "I'm really excited to meet our baby and to have someone to ride around the ranch with."
Summer then chimed in, noting that she has "felt great- a little bit tired, but overall really good" and that she feels "very lucky for that." The hairstylist says she's "equally excited and nervous" about becoming a mother and can't wait to see Jon as a dad.
"He's such a big kid at heart, always the life of the party and has such positive energy so I can only imagine how much fun this little Pardi addition will be for him and our family," she continued. "I know [being parents] is going to be the greatest gift in the world."
Jon and Summer got married in November 2020. Since then, they have been open about wanting to build a family. "It was definitely an interesting two years of ups and downs - the constant letdown month after month can really be hard on a couple," she told PEOPLE.
"After years of no luck and meeting with doctors who just didn't feel like the right fit, we decided to take a break, leave it in God's hands and just enjoy each other and this crazy, fun life we live together," she recalled. "And then surprise, we're pregnant!"
"I think stress has a huge part in it. You hear so many stories like ours of 'the moment you stop trying it'll happen,' but when you're in that situation it's really, really hard to not try or not think about it," Summer shared. "It's just one of those crazy things in life that doesn't make sense and there's no right or wrong answer. I feel for all of the couples out there who have been through this and especially those who are still in the thick of it."
