Brandon Lancaster will celebrate his third wedding anniversary with a brand new baby. The LANCO frontman and his wife Tiffany recently announced that they’d welcome a baby girl in September – right around their anniversary (they wed September 17, 2017). The baby’s due date comes full circle for Lancaster as he was born on his parent’s first wedding anniversary.
“They spent all their anniversaries at Chuck E. Cheese and laser tag,” he shared with PEOPLE. “It would be kind of karma if our anniversary also ended up being a birthday party for the foreseeable future.”
While he jokes about the timing of his daughter’s arrival, Lancaster admits that he’s never been more excited for an event in his life.
“It really is crazy, ’cause I’ve had big anticipation,” he admitted. “I’ve played really big shows — I’ve played Madison Square Garden, I’ve played Red Rocks. I’ve had these incredible experiences, but I can honestly say I don’t know if I’ve ever had anticipation and excitement for something as much as I’ve had for that day when [my daughter is] actually here.
“So that’s been a really crazy emotion, to think that all these different things in my life that I’ve anticipated, I haven’t really anticipated anything more than this. It’s actually been really cool and grounding,” he added.
The couple found out they were expecting over Christmas. Lancaster knew something was up when Tiffany sat silently, not daring to utter a word.
“Something was wrong, ’cause she was being really quiet,” he explained. “She mentioned offhand, ‘I actually have another Christmas gift for you. It’s on the counter.’ And I was watching The Office and kind of wasn’t paying attention.”
“She asked two more times, ‘Um, are you gonna open this Christmas gift?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, yeah.’ And I opened it up and it was a pregnancy test that said positive. That’s why she was being quiet — because she knew she was just gonna spill the beans if I didn’t open the gift!” Lancaster recalled with a laugh.
The couple will spend the next few months preparing the nursery and going over name choices as they eagerly await the arrival of their daughter. And as they plan things while waiting out the coronavirus pandemic, Lancaster revealed that they’ve had the chance to “step back and realize what’s really important in life,”
“I think it’s actually laying a cool foundation for the kind of parents we want to be — realizing that, at the end of the day, you have each other,” he said. “You have your family. And that’s the most important thing.”
