Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild and her husband Jimi Westbrook‘s little family is about to get a bit bigger: the couple are expecting their first child together!

In a message dedicated to their fans on the country group’s website, the excited parents-to-be reveal they will welcome baby-on-the-way in March.

“The two are extremely delighted and are looking forward to…when the little one is due,” the statement reads.

The new addition will be in good company come tour time — fellow band member Kimberly Schlapman is mom to daughter Daisy Pearl, 2, while Phillip Sweet is dad to daughter Penelopi Jane, 21 months.

I’m assuming Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet each has a child with someone else and not two children together? Otherwise they have a 2-year-old and a 21-month-old together?

Tess – Kimberly is married to a guy named Stephen and Phillip is married to a woman named Rebecca. So two different families, just part of the same group!!!! Congrats to Karen and Jimi!!

Yes it is two different band members with two different children. It can be hard to understand but when it says “respectively” that implys two seperate families.

Shirab and Brandi – thanks. The respectively is what made me think they each had a kid with someone else, but until then I thought they were married to each other.
