With twin girls due in February, Hillary Scott had the perfect excuse to stay home in her pajamas on Tuesday, November 14. But instead, the Lady Antebellum star crushed her performance with bandmates Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley at the annual CMA Country Christmas taping in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I definitely feel pregnant, but feeling really good,” Scott told Us Weekly and other reporters backstage at the Grand Ole Opry House. The singer’s date for the night: 4-year-old daughter Eisele, whom she shares with husband Chris Tyrell.
“My little girl is here. She got to see Santa,” Scott gushed. “She ran into our dressing room really quickly and wrote him a letter. And it’s just been sweet. The Christmas magic has already begun.”
Scott isn’t the only member of the Grammy-winning country music trio who will be expanding their family this winter. Haywood, 35, and his wife, Kelli, are giving their son Cash Van a little sister in December.
“It’s not going to be a silent night this Christmas for us, we’re having a baby the week before Christmas,” Haywood told reporters. “It could be a Christmas baby. You don’t know. It just makes it that more special this holiday season.”
There will be piles of gifts under the Haywood family tree, too. “My son loves presents and candy so he’s hyper focused on presents and candy,” Haywood said. “I haven’t yet explained the full story on Santa and Jesus. But he’s obsessed with presents so we’ll be spending all of our time on that.”
Kelley, meanwhile, is dad of 21-month-old Ward with wife Cassie.
“I don’t know if my kid is quite aware of what Christmas is yet, I mean I’m sure he isn’t,” Kelley, 36, admitted. On the way over here I started singing some Christmas songs to him. It was funny how quickly kids pick up on those melodies because they’re so classic. He kept saying, ‘Daddy sing! Sing again!’ I literally had to sing Christmas songs for 45 minutes straight.”
