Congrats! Singer Michelle Branch expecting her second child


Michelle Branch is pregnant with her second child.

The singer announced on Thursday that she was pregnant – the child will be her first with her fiancé, Patrick Carney.

She shared a sweet ultrasound video of their “little surprise”, as she said the couple “couldn’t be more excited”.

She wrote:

“Well, we were just about to send out Save The Dates for our wedding in May when we got this little surprise.

“Baby Carney is happening this summer and Patrick and I couldn’t be more excited! xx”

The Are You Happy Now singer and the Black Keys drummer got engaged in July 2017, on Branch’s 34th birthday.

In a post showing off her beautiful Art Deco engagement ring, the musician wrote:

“Thank you for all the birthday love and wishes. Last night, right before I blew out my candles, Patrick asked me to marry him and then I had nothing left to wish for … 34 might be the best year yet.”

The couple met at a Grammys party in Los Angles back in 2015, and soon began writing and recording together before starting a relationship.

The couple’s newest arrival will be the second child for Branch, who was previously married to her bassist Teddy Landau.

The pair tied the knot in 2004, before welcoming a baby girl named Owen a year later.

They called time on their relationship in 2014.
