Third Child on the Way for Dierks Bentley

Dierks Bentley has something special to sing about — a third child on the way!

The country star, 37, and his wife Cassidy will be expanding their brood this fall by welcoming a sibling for big sisters Evalyn Day, 4½, and Jordan Catherine, 2.

And the parents are already planning for being outnumbered.

“So my wife and I will be changing our family defensive strategy come the fall. Switching from MAN-to-MAN to ZONE. #3! Advice @thetimmcgraw?!” Bentley announced on Twitter early Thursday.

He says it’s too early to tell whether it’s a boy or a girl.

But when one well-wisher on Twitter advised Bentley to “Get him listening to banjo and fiddle early,” the singer replied: “‘Him’ huh?! It ain’t that easy bro!”

Bentley said in 2011 that he and Cassidy were likely done expanding their family, but “you never know” — especially given his children’s priority in his life.

“[Fatherhood] changes your life … before that you tell yourself you’re really busy or life is crazy, but kids really give you a perspective of what’s important — and that’s family.”

— Tim Nudd

That dress she has on is way too short. No need to be going to the Grammy Awards with your butt hanging out because the dress is too short. She should have a little more class than that. However, congrats to them on the new baby to be.

Considering what people usually where to the awards, that’s tame.

I read he liked her before he was famous and she wouldn’t have anything to do with him. He got a lot more attractive when he hit it big.

Joy- It can also be code for “We may change our minds in a few years”. 😉

Anyway, congrats to them!
