American Idol winner Scotty and Gabi are expecting their son to be born in November. The two wed in 2018 after meeting in kindergarten when they were young children.

"We always knew we wanted kids, but we always knew we wanted the first few years to travel and have time on the road, to see things and experience life," Scotty told People magazine.

"We've gotten to live a lot of life and do some cool things, so [it] seems like now's a good time to settle down a little and expand the family."

"I was the only boy on both sides of my family, the last McCreery boy out there," Scotty shared. "Gabi's from two sisters in her family, so I just figured it would be a girl. But we got a surprise of a boy."

Friends and fans were quick to share their love and support for the news, with Tenille Arts commenting: "Ahhh!!! Hope we do more shows together and you bring this little babe along!"

Scotty replied: "Absolutelyyy!"
