Popular Christian singer Chris Tomlin revealed that his new Christmas song “Miracle of Love” was inspired by his own little Christmas surprise.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Tomlin revealed that his wife, Lauren, is unexpectedly pregnant with their third daughter.

The baby is scheduled to be born 11 days before Christmas so he decided to write a song that paralleled the birth of Christ and his own miracle.

“I started thinking about how I could write a lyric that talks about my baby being born at Christmas and then talks about ‘the baby,’ Jesus, being born at Christmas and that each line would match and would have a double meaning,” the popular worship artist shared with PEOPLE.

Tomlin’s new holiday EP is now available and features the heartwarming tune.

“I got the news today / I heard that you were coming / It took my breath away / and the tears filled up my eyes / Surely you’d change some things / the way that I was living / I hit my knees to pray / so grateful for new life,” the 48-year-old sings in the song.

The Tomlins already have two daughters — 9-year-old Ashlyn and 6-year-old Madison. They were not expecting a third.

Tomlin revealed that the baby news was “the surprise of all surprises.”

Lauren Tomlin thought to herself “there’s no way” after experiencing pregnancy symptoms.

“When she got the test result, she said she just started laughing. She’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, are you kidding me?'” the “Good Good Father” singer was quoted as saying.
