It’s a Girl for Kane Brown + Wife Katelyn Jae!
Kane Brown and wife Katelyn Jae's first child will be a girl. The country star revealed the news on the 2019 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet on Wednesday (May 1).
People reports that Brown spilled the big news to Ellen executive producer Andy Lassner. The clip will air on Thursday's (May 2) show.
On the Billboard Music Awards red carpet, Brown admitted to Billboard that he's got major baby fever. "I wish I could just fast-forward and make it to where it’s already here," he says.
“I’m not going to let the baby go — I’m going to hold on to [her] the whole time,” Brown joked with People. “I might be carrying the baby down the carpet with me next!”
Brown and Jae revealed that they are expecting a baby on April 15. The couple got married about six months ago, on Oct. 12, 2018, after meeting in 2015 through a mutual work acquaintance. Jae is also in the music business -- she studies music management -- and has dabbled in performing in the past.
"She came to one of my shows, and the first time I saw her, it was the shy giddiness," Brown tells Taste of Country Nights. "I didn't know what was going to happen. She lived in Orlando [and] was in Miami."
Still, both felt a connection that couldn't be hampered by distance: "I messaged her on Instagram the next night and said, 'Hey, when are we going to hang out?' and flew her down," Brown shared, "and she hasn't left since."
Brown and Jae got engaged on Easter 2017, in a rather unique way: while they were watching The Amityville Horror, the plot of which involves a newly married couple moving into a house where murders took place. He tells People it was a “weird proposal," but he "just couldn’t wait" for his planned romantic gesture, which involved "rose petals and everything like that."
