The couple announced that they were expecting their first child in April. They revealed to People at the time that they got the news over Christmas when they were visiting Caroline's sister in Austin.
"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 said. "She came out of the bathroom, we were all in the kitchen, and she announced it."
“It was quite the Christmas present,” Caroline added.
A Thousand Horses scored a No. 1 hit on Billboard's Country Airplay chart with their debut single, "Smoke," in 2015. Caroline Hobby is also prominent in Nashville's country music scene; she hosts the popular country music-themed podcast Get Real With Caroline Hobby, and previously performed in the country trio Stealing Angels.
Caroline said in April that she was looking forward to seeing her husband turn to "pure mush" when their daughter was born, which he acknowledged was probably true. He is the youngest of four brothers, and Hobby said being a father to a girl was "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.”
