Dan + Shay singer Shay Mooney and his fiancee turned to social media to reveal the gender of the child they’re expecting, as well as the meaning behind the name they’ve picked out.

Mooney posted to Instagram on Christmas Day, sharing a photo of his fiancee, Hannah Billingsley, who is now visibly carrying their child.

“I am beyond blessed. I can’t believe I get to call this beautiful woman mine,” he writes. “The last year has been the best of my life. @hannah.billingsley I love you like crazy and you’re gonna be the best mom in the whole world. I pray that our baby is just like you…if they’re anything like me, we got a long road ahead. 😂 I don’t know how good of a dad I’ll be, but I have the best one in the world to help me along. All that being said…we can’t wait to meet you Asher James. I already love you more than I thought I was capable of. Seeya soon little man.”

God has truly honored us with the privilege of being the parents of this sweet boy. We love you and can’t wait to meet you, Asher James Mooney 💙.”
