Updated On 26 Jul, 2018 Published On

Baby on the way for Rachel Platten and Kevin Lazan! The Fight Song singer and her husband of 8 years are expecting their first child together, a representative for Rachel has confirmed.

The 37-year-old songstress took to Instagram on Wednesday, July 25 to announce her pregnancy, with sharing a photo of herself wearing a white shirt and tight jeans as she shows of her growing baby bump.

The lengthy caption reads,

This is one of my most exciting announcements, but also one of my most vulnerable. So here goes…. I am pregnant!! I can’t believe I’m finally typing these words – I have wanted to share this news for months. As I thought about how to share what I have been experiencing, I became paralyzed about doing it the exact, perfect way – how to express all of my total bliss and yet all this fear too? I finally realized that I can’t worry about making being ME comfortable for everybody else, I have to share this journey MY WAY: with honesty, vulnerability, love and an open heart.

She added,

The truth is, I am overwhelmed with love, joy and happiness about our baby. It’s a total miracle that I’m growing a human and my husband and I couldn’t be more thrilled. But, I have also had an incredibly difficult spring and summer with serious nausea, exhaustion, constant sickness and all the awful symptoms no one wants to really talk about when sharing the “perfect blessed journey” of pregnancy. I was so afraid that if I shared that part (the difficulty of flying and performing while puking in green rooms and airplanes) that I’d seem ungrateful somehow when I’m actually crazy full of gratitude – I’m just HUMAN.

Here's the beautiful post, check it out.

 

This is one of my most exciting announcements, but also one of my most vulnerable. So here goes.... I am pregnant!! I can’t believe I’m finally typing these words – I have wanted to share this news for months. As I thought about how to share what I have been experiencing, I became paralyzed about doing it the exact, perfect way - how to express all of my total bliss and yet all this fear too?

Human emotions are complex. We can feel more than one thing at once you know? We can hold both love and wonder and aw and joy, but also frustration and sickness and fear and darker stuff too and it’s normal! So anyway, that’s where I’m at my loves. With all the mystery and wonder around this, one thing that has been abundantly clear to me: this little unbelievable soul that I haven’t even met yet is going to be my biggest teacher in the world and I cannot wait to learn. I love you all so much, and I promise to continue to share as much of this process with you as I can. Xoxoxox, a totally happy, exhausted, not so nauseous today Rach.

Rachel and Kevin, who is a lawyer and founder and CEO of The Gables which is a counter-service cafe in Santa Monica, California, got married on 31 July 2010 in a Jewish wedding ceremony conducted in Rhode Island.

Back in 2015, while talking with Us Weekly, Rachel said that his husband is an “amazing man.”

She said at the time, We’ve been together for 10 years, and he’s a huge reason why I kept believing in my dreams".

Rachel, whose fourth studio album Waves was released last October, rose to fame after her Top 10 hit was chosen as the unofficial anthem for the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton in 2016.

However, in October 2017, while on an interview with Glamour, Rachel said that the song belongs to everyone.
