It’s been an exciting few months for Shay Mooney of country duo Dan + Shay. The singer got engaged to longtime girlfriend Hannah Billingsley in August, and nearly two months later, Mooney and Billingsley revealed that they are expecting their first child together.

On Christmas Eve, in separate posts to Instagram, the pair shared a gorgeous maternity photo of Billingsley and announced the baby’s gender and name to the world.

“Asher – A name meaning fortunate; blessed; happy one,” Hannah wrote. “@shaymooney and I are all of those things and more. God has truly honored us with the privilege of being the parents of this sweet boy. We love you and can’t wait to meet you, Asher James Mooney 💙”

Shay followed Hannah’s post with a beautiful message to his wife-to-be and unborn son saying, “I am beyond blessed. I can’t believe I get to call this beautiful woman mine. The last year has been the best of my life. @hannah.billingsley I love you like crazy and you’re gonna be the best mom in the whole world. I pray that our baby is just like you…if they’re anything like me, we got a long road ahead. 😂 I don’t know how good of a dad I’ll be, but I have the best one in the world to help me along. All that being said…we can’t wait to meet you Asher James. I already love you more than I thought I was capable of. See ya soon little man.”

Baby Mooney is expect to arrive some time in 2017.
