While we all know the reason for the Christmas season, we also know that a large part of the celebration of the holiday comes in the form of giving gifts. Whether you opened your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, there was likely pretty paper, bows and tags flying around in the excitement of the day.
If you’re a Pistol Annies fan, there was also likely a screech of surprise and delight as Hippie Annie, Ashley Monroe, revealed that she and husband John Danks are expecting their first baby together.
Ashley posted a photo of an ultrasound image on her Instagram page on Christmas afternoon and wrote: “Best present ever. Merry Christmas everyone…so many new things coming in 2017.” No due date or gender was announced.
Among the well-wishers to Ashley’s good news were newly engaged Kacey Musgraves and her fiancé, Ruston Kelly. The couple shared their good news earlier on Christmas morning.
Ashley and her MLB pitcher husband, John, tied the knot in October 2013. In addition to her own solo career and her work with Pistol Annies, Ashley is also well-known for collaborating with Blake Shelton on the chart-topping single, “Lonely Tonight.”
Christmas congratulations to Ashley and John!
