Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber are over the moon about their little one that’s due later in the year, but it seems that the country star’s parents may be looking forward to it even more.

While chatting with his label Big Machine Label Group, Gilbert reveals that his parents are so excited about babies that they become the center of attention whenever they’re in the room. “My mom, she’s babies period. My dad the same way,” the singer says. “Literally if we have people over at the house and a baby walks in, you can kiss him goodbye for the rest of the night ’cause he’s gonna be talking to it and holding that baby all night.”

Gilbert and his wife shared the exciting news that they are expecting in May of 2017, following the announcement a month later by revealing that they’re having a boy. Though he may appear rugged on the outside, “The Weekend” singer is a big softy on the inside, saying that he gets emotional looking at the ultrasound of his little baby. “I’m pretty good around other folks now, but when I’m by myself, if I look at one of the pictures from the doctor’s office, I lose a few tears,” he admits.

The singer is currently on the summer leg of his 2017 The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour in support of the album of the same name, and recently released the second single off the project titled “The Ones That Like Me.” The trek keeps Gilbert on the road through early fall, wrapping up in Raleigh, N.C., on Sept. 23.
