“Baby boy McCreery coming soon!” Scotty captioned an exclusive photo taken by PEOPLE for the announcement. The shot show’s McCreery holding a pair of little cowboy boots as he stands next to his wife who is displaying ultrasound photos.

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

He continued, “I grew up playing sports, so getting to introduce him to baseball, which was my first love right there with music, and golf are just little things that [will be great]."

The announcement comes just days after the couple celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary. Baby McCreery is due in November.
