Congratulations to Eli Young Band lead singer Mike Eli! According to People magazine, he’s expecting a baby with wife Kacey, who are celebrating their second anniversary next week. The pair found out the good news on New Years Day, and they’re expecting their baby daughter on August 2nd. Mike is taking his new role very seriously, already hitting the baby books hard to find out everything he needs to know:
“She and her mom got me a couple books that I am reading, and it can be a little overwhelming,” he admits. “I recommend reading them for the basics and what to expect during pregnancy, but they can’t teach you to be a good dad and a good partner. That’s up to me to figure out.”
Mike and his band will be heading to Las Vegas this weekend for the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards. The group is up for three ACM awards including Vocal Group of the Year. See if they take any of the three home when it airs live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas at 8 pm EST on CBS.
