Brett Young will turn 40 this year, but that’s not the only major milestone the singer is preparing for… he’s gearing up to become a dad of two! The singer and his wife Taylor announced that they are expecting their second child in the summer of 2021.

Already parents to 15-month-old Presley, the parents are excited to have their children close in age.

“We really wanted them to be close enough in age so they could have a lot of things in common and be best friends. Tay had her sister close in age growing up, so we both felt strongly we wanted Presley to have the same,” the California native shared with PEOPLE. “Tay is so close with her sister, and that’s something we always knew we wanted for Presley. We feel very blessed!”

Their announcement comes just as Taylor finishes the first trimester, one that has been far more difficult than her pregnancy with Presley.

“Unfortunately the morning sickness is real this time, which is unlike the first pregnancy. That being said, everyone is healthy and that’s all that matters,” he explained. “Hopefully, being through the first trimester, she will start to get more comfortable.”

As they prepare for baby number two, the couple continues to revel in their time at home together, an unexpected upside from the difficult 2020.

“When you’re in it every day, you forget sometimes how fast it goes,” the couple said at the time of Presley’s first birthday. “We have been floored, emotional and immeasurably blessed! 2020 was rough, but the time we’ve had with Presley has been incredible.”

The singer continued, “There are so many things I would have missed during this first year of our daughter’s life if I was gone working. I got to be there when she said ‘Dada’ for the first time. There are more examples, but I think that says it all and sums it up for me. So special.”

Young recently launched his BY40 Challenge, a ten-week fitness program with celebrity trainer Don Saladino. The duo teamed up to encourage fans to work out with them and have the chance to win prizes from their efforts. His current single, “Lady,” is Top 20 and rising.
