Los Angeles: Lady Antebellum`s female member Hillary Scott is expecting her first child with drummer husband Chris Tyrrell.

The couple got married in upstate New York last January after a year of engagement and Scott took to twitter to share the happy news with her followers, reported a website.

"Chris and I are excited to announce that our Christmas gift has arrived a little early this year!. We are having a BABY! We feel so blessed!!!"

Upon her arrival in Las Vegas, she added, "So overwhelmed by the outpouring of love about our news! Now some shut eye... this growing a baby thing makes ya sleepy!"

The Grammy-winning band`s member Charles Kelley had said earlier that they could probably slow down if Scott got pregnant, but if it was his wife or Dave Haywood`s spouse who`s expecting, they would keep going on.
