Emerson Drive’s Brad Mates is gearing up to sing a different tune: lullabies!

The country crooner and his wife Jana are expecting their first child — a boy to be named Tyler — he revealed during an interview with CMT.

With their April due date fast approaching, Brad is still getting used to the idea of fatherhood. “[Becoming a father] is a little surreal right now,” he admits. “I still don’t believe that we’re going to be parents soon.”

Even the “new toys, clothes, bottles, [and] diapers” stacked around the house have yet to make an impression on Brad, who insists everything will click once baby boy makes his appearance. “Until we bring him home, I can only wonder how it’s all going to feel,” he says.

And for Brad and Jana, that day can’t come soon enough!

“Jana and I are so excited for the baggy eyes and sleepless nights ahead … ohhhh no!”

How exciting for them! Congrats! I seem to remember Jana saying there would be no babies until the band got a second bus — I wonder how far off that purchase is, lol.

Congrats Brad & Jana. I wonder how Brad will be with diaper duty? Guess he better start practicing on his nieces, lol.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
