Just Call Josh Turner Papa Turner
Josh Turner told People.com this week that he and his wife, Jennifer, are expecting their third child in January.
The new addition will join the Turner's growing family, which includes three-year-old son Hampton and one-year-old son Colby. "Jennifer and I are very thankful to be expecting our third child," says Josh. "We've always wanted a big family. It's hard to believe we already have two with another on the way."
Josh and Jennifer decided to share the good news in person with Josh's grandmother after a recent sold-out show in Myrtle Beach, SC. They were traveling very close to Josh's hometown of Hannah, SC en route to his next show when they decided to call his grandmother to see if she could meet them. During that special visit, Josh asked her, "Are you ready to be a great-grandmamma again?" To which she responded, "I was thinking that it was about time!"
The Turner's have made life on the road a family affair. Jennifer plays keyboards and sings background vocals in his band while Hampton and Colby travel with them on their kid-friendly bus.
In addition to performing for sold-out crowds this summer, Josh is having success on the country radio charts with what he calls "a summertime anthem." His current single, "All Over Me" holds the # 12 position this week on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and it is #11 on Mediabase/Country Aircheck.
