Boone is getting a brother.

Eric Church and wife Katherine are expecting their second child, another boy, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The musician, 37, slyly made the announcement on stage Thursday, tweaking a lyric in “Sinners Like Me” from “Give my dad a grandson of his own” to “Give my dad another grandson of his own,” CMT reports.

The couple was married in January 2008 in North Carolina and welcomed their son Boone McCoy, who turns 3 this coming Friday, in 2011.

“Everyone always tells you what an awesome and unique experience being a parent is, but words can never do the feeling justice,” Church said at the time.

Earlier this month, Carrie Underwood announced that she and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, are expecting their first child — and apparently the big news is still soaking in for the singer.

“It’s still kind of weird, to be honest,” Underwood, 31, said Friday on the Today show.

“Sometimes I’ll be with my husband, and it’s like, ‘I’m gonna be a mom. You’re gonna be a dad. Is this real life?’ But we’re really excited.”

As far as what kind of mom she’ll be, Underwood hopes the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. “I have a wonderful mother,” she said. “If I can be even a little bit like that, I think we’ll be good.”

Underwood also revealed big music news. She’s releasing a new single, “Something in the Water,” off her first Greatest Hits album, due out Dec. 9.

Time changes everything — just ask Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott.

The band recently wrapped their Take Me Downtown tour and while they’ve sorted out the bus situation, the first-time mom admits she’s still adjusting to taking 13-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye out on the road.

“It’s a lot to juggle,” Scott, 28, tells PEOPLE. “When I’m on the road and touring, my whole day revolves around when I need to get ready, so by a certain time I need to be taking a shower and if I’m 10 minutes late, then it’s going to make the rest of the day shift.”

Adds the singer, “It can get stressful.”

Lady Antebellum‘s Dave Haywood knows he could be a dad any day now, so he’s made sure to get a little hands-on practice in parenting — with the help of bandmate Hillary Scott‘s baby.

About two months ago, Haywood tested out his diaper changing skills on Scott’s 13-month-old daughter, Eisele Kaye. Up to that point, he admits, he was a novice.

“I had never changed a diaper in my life!” Haywood, 32, tells PEOPLE. “I didn’t even know where they clipped! I didn’t know where the Velcro goes.”

Jokes bandmate Charles Kelley, “He was like, ‘Where’s the zipper?'”
