They were just about to send out their ‘Save The Date’ wedding cards – but now Michelle Branch and her fiance Patrick Carney may have to delay their wedding after discovering she is pregnant.
The Everywhere singer shared her surprising news on Thursday when she uploaded a video of her ultrasound to Instagram.
Explaining the pregnancy came as a complete surprise to the couple, the Grammy-winner captioned the sweet post: ‘Well, we were just about to send out Save The Dates for our wedding in May when we got this little surprise!’
She added: ‘Baby Carney is happening this summer and Patrick and I couldn’t be more excited!’
Michelle’s future hubby, who is the drummer for rock band The Black Keys, also made sure he shared the couple’s happy news with his 75.5k followers.
Fans rushed to congratulate the future Mr and Mrs, with one commenting: ‘Congratulations to you on your pregnancy Michelle! Best of luck and love with your new addition to the family!!’
Another said: ‘Absolutely beautiful… Congratulations to you both… God bless you’.
A third added: ‘Congratulations Michelle!! Super stoked for both you and Patrick. You guys rock.’
While a fourth excitedly said: ‘OMG!!!! Congratulations! I’m so excited for you both and wish you all the best!’
Michelle and Patrick originally met in February 2015 at a Grammys party in Los Angeles.
They became engaged during her 34th birthday party in 2017.
Though this will be Michelle and Patrick’s first child together, it is the second for Michelle.
She has a 12-year-old daughter named Owen from her previous marriage to bassist Teddy Landau. The former couple tied the knot in 2004 before divorcing 10-years later in 2014.
