Love and Theft‘s Eric Gunderson is about to get his heart stolen.

The musician and his wife Emily are expecting their first child together on May 18, the couple tell Taste of Country.

“I’ve wanted to be a father forever, and now I feel like we’re in a place in our career where it won’t be the most nerve-wracking thing ever,” Gunderson, 27, shares.

“I feel like I can support a family now. It will be good. We’re really excited.”

After tying the knot during a Moroccan-themed wedding in April 2010, Emily — who is currently 13 weeks along — is now more than ready to embark on the path to parenthood with Gunderson.

“I’m beyond excited to share another journey through life with my best friend and husband,” she says. “I pray not only for a healthy baby, but for a baby that is as talented in music as his sweet and handsome father!”

Although they have yet to find out the sex of their baby, the “Runnin’ Out of Air” singer is placing his bets (or at least high hopes!) on a boy.

“Obviously, I’m just hoping for a healthy baby,” he explains. “But I was the oldest in my family and I was a boy … I think it was cool for my sister to always have an older brother. I think I’d like to have a boy first and then a little girl, but I’ll take whatever I get!”

That’s awesome! It’s going to be a Taurus baby like me (my b-day is May 17). Congratulations to Eric and his wife.

Who is this? No offense to this guy, but how does this news belong in People? Are we going to have to read about when a non-speaking extra from a Law & Order episode in 2004 is pregnant?

Asa- No, because a non-speaking extra on a TV show isn’t a celeb. An accomplished musician who has been part of the CMAs most certainly is, hence why we’re reading about him on PEOPLE.

Bottomline: If someone is a celebrity, then yes, we probably will be hearing about his or her baby-related news on this site!

"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!"
