Josh Turner and his wife Jennifer are expecting their fourth son in September.

“It’s a welcome surprise,” the country singer, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “To have four boys is pretty awesome for a father.”

Already parents to sons Hampton, 7½, Colby, 5 next month, and Marion, 3, Turner says things will be getting real cozy at home in Tennessee for the soon-to-be family of six.

“We’ll have an even smaller house this fall!” he jokes.

But the boys are already pitching in.

“They’ve been throwing out some name suggestions,” Turner says. “My second son, Colby, suggested Backwoods Boy, but I don’t think we’re going to go with it.”

As for how they’ll manage four kids? The “Time Is Love” singer and author of Man Stuff says he’s not worried.

“People have always told us having three was the hardest,” he says. “There was this one day a while ago where our three boys were literally driving us crazy. We were ready to pull our hair out and Jennifer was about to scream. I looked at her and said, ‘Hey, remember everyone always told us that three was the hardest number? We’re either having another one or we’re giving one away!'”

“I honestly have no idea what it’s going to be like,” he adds. “We’re just going to take it one day at a time.”

@Carmen………Obviously you have never met Josh…..He’s a arrogant bottomhole……His wife is just like him………I used to be a fan until I met them a few years ago….needless to say, i wasn’t a fan after the meeting…

They put on a good show about values and morals but behind closed doors or after a show it all changes.

Oh, I don’t know…John Wayne did all right, and his name was Marion. Marion used to be a boy’s name, as was Courtney, Hilary, and several other names we think of as girls’ names now.

How did John Wayne “do all right” with the name if he changed it?

Ugh, I hate hearing when celebs are jerks. When a celeb has a chance to meet a fan they should be so grateful and friendly because if it wasn’t for fans, the celebs would be nowhere. That being said, MJ PLEASE GIVE DETAILS!!!!

Welcome surprise my ass…… She was desparate for a girl, and is trying to smooth it over…. I heard they were real pieces of work – I believe it…..

I agree that famous people should be polite to their fans, because without fans where would they be? That being said maybe when MJ met the Turners there was a problem going on that MJ knew nothing of. People here in OK say frequently that Bob Stoops is an A$$ to fans & reporters. Which makes me glad I got to meet Barry Switzer. For a man constantly in the public eye he couldn’t have been nicer.
