Michelle Branch has a new addition to the family on the way.

The singer announced she is expecting a baby with her fiancé, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, on Instagram Thursday (Feb. 8). “Well we were just about to send out Save The Dates for our wedding in May when we got this little surprise,” she wrote alongside a snapshot of her sonogram.

“Baby Carney is happening this summer and Patrick and I couldn’t be more excited!” she continued. While this is her first child with Carney, Branch also shares 12-year old daughter Owen with her ex-husband Teddy Landau.
