Sara_evans When she marries her fiancé, sports-radio host Jay Barker, this summer Sara Evans says her household will be approaching sitcom proportions.  Already mom to three children with ex-husband Craig SchelskeAvery Jack, 8 ½, Olivia Margaret, 5 and Audrey Elizabeth, 3 ½ — Sara will also become a step-mom to Jay’s four children from his own previous marriage.  In a call to the radio show GAC Nights: Live From Nashville the 37-year-old country singer quipped,

‘The Brady Bunch’ had six kids, and we have seven kids, and if we had another one, we could do ‘Eight Is Enough … If we had two more, we could do ‘Eight Wasn’t Enough.’ I’m not having two more children, I can promise you that.

Sara and Jay began dating in November.

Wow, they are really going to have their hands full! It sure is quick after their divorces, I hope it’s not a rebound for the kids sake… Good luck to them!!

Kimber Christian on

I have a bad feeling about the speed of this relationship but for the sake of all SEVEN kids I am pulling for Sara and Jay to make it! Congrats!

They started dating in November? As in November 2007? As in 4-5 months ago? Wow. Hopefully it will work out. You never know, stranger things have happened. Good luck to them!

We will just have to trust their judgment. I met – and married – my husband in less than four months … and we have been very happily married now for 15 years! Sometimes when “you know” you just know when meeting the right one. I’m sure with seven children to think about they are not taking marriage lightly.

Arnie Coro on

Yeah, I thought it was kind of soon too… with that many kids in the mix the last thing they need are bad judgement, hopefully it will all work out for them.

I guess I would personally wish they would spend more time with the children they have without adding other parties in the mix but you just have to hope it will all turn out for the best.

Her divorce really wasn’t that long ago and hopefully the children have adjusted fully to that before having a new “daddy”

I am so happy for her, the divorce was nasty and she deserves happiness.

My husband and I met and were engaged within 9 WEEKS. We have been married almost 10 years and have 4 wonderful children.

Good Luck to them, sometimes you really do just know!

my folks were introduced to each other the last week of sept, and 6 weeks later they were married.. 40 years ago.. blessings and best wishes to both of them!

Good luck to her, being married for a 2nd time with so many kids, might be a bit difficult. She should wait a bit before having another baby, just to get to adjust to the entire family and see how that works out.
