A Thousand Horses Singer Michael Hobby, Wife Expecting First Child
A Thousand Horses singer Michael Hobby and his wife, Caroline, are expecting their first child!
The couple have confirmed to People that they are expecting a baby girl in early September. Caroline reveals that she is at 19-20 weeks, nearly halfway through her pregnancy.
"I feel so great but the first trimester I felt queasy and nauseous, just so exhausted,” she states. “The second trimester has been like a dream. It’s been awesome and we’re really just excited to be pregnant. We’re so grateful to have a baby girl coming soon!”
They found out the joyous news when they were visiting Caroline's sister in Austin at Christmas.
"We’ve been trying for a while so it wasn’t a surprise but Caroline just had that sixth sense of ‘I think I’m pregnant,’" Hobby recalls. "She came out of the bathroom, we were all in the kitchen, and she announced it."
“It was quite the Christmas present,” his wife adds.
Caroline — who hosts the popular country music-themed podcast Get Real With Caroline Hobby, and previously performed in the country trio Stealing Angels — says she's most looking forward to seeing her husband turn to "pure mush" when their daughter is born.
Michael Hobby admits that's probably true. As the youngest of four brothers, he says having a baby girl is "going to be a big change for me. I’m excited, I had friends who have little girls text me and said I’m pretty much toast, it’s all over. We’re thrilled.”
Though they still have some tasks ahead of them to prepare for their daughter, including building a crib, they have already chosen a name, which they have not disclosed.
The couple have already received a cool gift from Florida Georgia Line singer Tyler Hubbard and his wife, Hayley, who gave them a set of headphones that adhere to the abdomen to play music in the womb.
“I played her Tom Petty’s ‘Wildflowers,’ that was the first song," Michael says. "Trying to get her off on a good start.”
