Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard Expecting First Child With Wife Hayley

| Celebrity Babies

Tyler Hubbard is having a busy 2017 — his country duo with bandmate Brian Kelley, Florida Georgia Line, just kicked off a massive tour this month, the duo just opened a restaurant and bar in downtown Nashville and the singer and wife Hayley just announced that they are expecting their first child.

“There’s a lot of excitement — it’s something we’ve looked forward to for a while,” Tyler told PEOPLE.

The couple, who tied the knot in July 2015, is expecting their new arrival in December.

“We haven’t put a whole lot of pressure on ourselves to just try to have a baby or not try to have a baby,” Tyler shared. “We’ve just been going with it and seeing what happens, and it’s been fun to live in that moment for a little while of, ‘If it happens, great. If it doesn’t, great as well.’ That’s where we’ve been, and it’s been fun to trust God and know that his timing is perfect. It really is so perfect.”

Though the pair lives hectic lives now, they know things will only get crazier once their newborn arrives.

“There’s a lot that we’re going to get to learn,” Tyler said. “Hayley and I both really love learning and growing as people. For us, it’s the next phase and the next stage of life that God can really teach us a lot and show us patience … and selflessness.”

“Trying to have the balance of raising a kid and raising a family with the lifestyle that we have, and the pace of life that we live — it’s going to be fun, it’s going to be challenging and something that we’re really, really excited about,” he continued. “There’s all kinds of emotions on both ends of the spectrum from excitement to [nervousness]. But the excitement definitely [outweighs] the nerves.”

The singer later shared the news on his Instagram account, writing, "We've had such a hard time not telling everybody for the last few months because we are SO excited.... WE ARE PREGNANT. Holy cow we're going to be parents. God is so good and we can't wait for this next chapter of our life."

Congratulations to the growing family!
