Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Country music singer Parker McCollum is going to be a dad.

The recording artist, 31, and his wife, Hallie McCollum, are expecting their first child together.

McCollum and Hallie McCollum shared the news Wednesday on Instagram alongside a photo that shows them kissing as Hallie cradles her baby bump.

"God's little blessing. We love you so much already, Baby M!" the couple captioned the post.

Fellow country music singers Randy Travis, Jason Aldean and Jake Owen were among those to congratulate McCollum and his wife in the comments.

"Watch out world...beautiful baby enroute!! The greatest love ever :) Congratulations!" Travis wrote.

"Congrats guys!!! Best thing ever!" Aldean added.

"Congrats mama and daddy," Owen said.

Fans started speculating that McCollum and his wife were expecting in January after McCollum canceled his Aug. 30 show in College Station, Texas, "due to unforeseen circumstances."

The singer told fans at the time that "we have some exciting news that we'll be announcing in the near future."

McCollum is known for the singles "Meet You in the Middle," "Pretty Heart," "To Be Loved by You" and "Handle on You." He released his album Never Enough in May 2023.
