“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 added.

Before the wedding, the American Idol winner told People: “We’ve been dating six years and have known each other our whole lives. That kind of story doesn’t happen too often nowadays.”

“I was the only boy on both sides of my family, the last McCreery boy out there,” Scotty said. “Gabi’s from two sisters in her family, so I just figured it would be a girl. But we got a surprise of a boy.”

She admitted her job “definitely has shown me the ropes a little bit,” Gabi said, “Even just down to changing diapers multiple times in a day, and figuring out how to soothe the baby when they’re upset, for sure has helped.”

A big congratulations to the happy couple!
