It was about a month ago that Eric Gunderson of Love and Theft revealed that he and his wife Emily were expecting their first child in May. Back then he said he was just hoping for a healthy baby, but he is ecstatic to share that they found out they’re having a little boy. Eric admits, “Emily would be happy either way, but I’ve been secretly planning father/son hunting and fishing trips all along. I might even let him try his hand at guitar, although, you know those musicians are a handful …”
When Eric first found out he was going to be a dad he told Taste of Country, “I was the oldest in my family and I was a boy … I think it was cool for my sister to always have an older brother. I think I’d like to have a boy first and then a little girl.” Baby boy Gunderson is due on May 18, 2013.
