Several country singers have already announced they’re welcoming new additions in 2022!

We’ll keep this list updated if more country artists announce pregnancies throughout the year. In the meantime, head below to meet all of the singers we know are expecting!


Michelle Branch

Michelle Branch is known in the country music world as one half of the duo The Wreckers alongside Jessica Harp. The duo scored a #1 country hit with their 2005 single “Leave the Pieces.”

The Wreckers disbanded in 2007, and Michelle and Jessica pursued solo careers. Michelle’s solo music is more pop and rock in style, though she still has many fans in the country music community (and she and Jessica have been teasing a Wreckers reunion).

Those fans were overjoyed when Michelle announced in August 2021 that she and her husband, The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, were expecting. The couple previously suffered a loss in December 2020. She said their rainbow baby is due in “early 2022.” 

This is Michelle’s third child, and her second with Patrick. The couple shares a three-year-old son, Rhys James. Branch shares a 16-year-old daughter, Owen Isabelle, with her ex-husband Teddy Landau.
