Hillary Scott Pregnant: Lady Antebellum Singer Expecting First Child

Hillary Scott is pregnant!

The 26-year-old lead singer of country band Lady Antebellum shared the good news with her fans on Twitter on Dec. 7:

Scott and Nashville-based drummer Chris Tyrell just tied the knot in January. The couple first met in college, but reconnected while both were serving as opening acts on Tim McGraw's Southern Voice tour in 2010. The two started dating in July of that year and Tyrell proposed just a year later.

This will be the couple's first child together, but not the first addition to their family, as they adopted a dog named Hobbs this past summer.
