Josh Abbott has shared some big news on Instagram: he’s going to be a daddy.

With the announcement of a “Baby Abbott coming soon”, Josh added that he’s “Blessed and excited to announce this new chapter in my life”.

You may remember recently when we posted a story where Abbott surprised his mom by taking her dress shopping. Unsure as to why her son was buying her a new dress, he revealed she would be his date for the ACM Awards in Las Vegas and she was delighted!

You can only imagine the joy she feels in getting the news that she is going to be a grandmother.

Josh Abbott will surely cherish the news of a new life even more, after recently losing his father.
