Dan + Shay singer, Shay Mooney, and his wife, Hannah, just announced they are expecting a baby boy. This is their second child following first born, Asher James who is now 2 1/2 years old.
The couple revealed the big news Wednesday (August 21) on Instagram. The post featured a series of photos and videos of their son Asher, announcing that he'd soon have a baby brother.
The country singer's Instagram caption read, "Celebrating a number 1 with baby number 2! Hannah and I have been dying to share the news. We thought for sure we'd be announcing a baby girl, but God has other plans for the Mooney's. Found out today we're having a BOY! Bout to be a new duo in town."
His wife Hannah shares, "We've cried and laughed all morning (I thought for sure it was a girl)! We are over the moon and can't wait to see this precious guy be the sweetest big brother, early next year!"
The couple's announcement comes right after the country music duo, Dan + Shay, scored their sixth No. 1 hit song with "All To Myself." Safe to say it's been a big week for Mooney!

Mooney's first born son, Asher, was born back in January of 2017. Following his arrival, Mooney opened up with People sharing, "It has been a huge change and the best change. You love each other a ton and then you have a kid and you never realize how much you could love something. It strengthens you love for each other, but it also just opens up this entire other deeper world of love that you never knew you could have."
The duo's heartwarming track, "When I Pray For You" was actually inspired in part for Mooney by fatherhood. The lyrics cut deep, expressing a parent's love to their child. Take a listen to the emotional song below.
Congrats to Shay and Hannah Mooney on baby number two!
