Colton Dixon‘s family is about to expand by one!
“Becoming a dad is something I’ve always looked forward to. Whether seeing other kids with their parents or reminiscing on the times I had with my own when I was young, these are moments to be cherished,” says Dixon, 28. “Annie and I are ecstatic about this exciting new chapter! We are also relieved that this is no longer a secret.”
His wife adds that their baby on the way “is truly a dream come true,” telling PEOPLE, “As a first-time mom, I’ve felt really vulnerable navigating this new territory, but the kindness from fellow moms has help put me at ease, along with the support of my husband.”
“I asked a girl the other day, whom I’d never met before, if she liked her stroller. She didn’t hesitate to stop and give me the sweetest advice and encouragement,” recalls Annie, 31. “It was so kind. I believe the world is more beautiful when we help each other.”
“I think I will be able to understand life in new ways, and though I know it’s a big learning curve, I’m excited for the next chapter,” she continues. “Colton and I have always wanted children. We’ve always said, ‘One day.’ And that day is here! I am so grateful for this gift of bringing a child into the world! Even though I’m not looking forward to the literal side of that so much.”
