This is no ordinary day! Vanessa Carlton revealed on Thursday, June 26, that she's pregnant and expecting a baby with husband John McCauley.
The "A Thousand Miles" singer, 33, announced her happy news via Facebook, with a photo of her small baby bump and a message to fans about her planned fifth album. "I can now reveal the reason as to why Liberman will not be released until next summer. See the picture below," she wrote.
Then, joking about her growing belly, she added, "No, those aren't a bunch of croissants. We're expecting a baby. It's healthy and moving around like a champ."
She continued: "I'm bummed to delay the album because it's so special to me and the perfect combination of England and Tennessee. When I put the record on it feels like medicine. I hope it does the same for you...in due time! Thanks for sticking with me. John, Victor, and I are over the moon." (Victor is the "Ordinary Day" chanteuse's dog.)
Carlton and McCauley tied the knot last December, in a wedding officiated by Fleetwood Mac songstress Stevie Nicks. A month before they married, she revealed on her website that she'd recently suffered a fallopian pregnancy.
"This is not considered a viable pregnancy because the fetus cannot develop, and it is a high-risk situation for the mother because of the potential for tubal rupture and internal bleeding," she explained at the time. Her doctors caught the condition early, but she later experienced complications and had to have her entire right fallopian tube surgically removed.
Her saving grace was McCauley, who flew all night to be by her side in the hospital. "I realize I am a lucky woman on many levels here," she wrote.
