The singing pair revealed in November they were expecting their daughter, writing that their dogs "can't wait to be big brothers".

The two met five years ago but reconnected in June 2020 when Jennifer's bandmate Natalie Stovall sent Jennifer a text to tell her that Austin had found a dog on the freeway that needed rehoming.

They became engaged on 28 December 2020 and two weeks later wed  in a small ceremony in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
