Michelle Branch has a baby on the way!
The 38-year-old singer announced that she and her husband Patrick Carney are expecting their second child together. The couple is already parents to 2-year-old son Rhys, and she is also mom to a 16-year-old daughter Owen whom she shares with ex-husband Teddy Landau. On Sunday, Branch shared the happy news in an Instagram post showing off a batch of scones she made to satisfy some of her pregnancy cravings. She wrote:
“You know you’re pregnant when… Woke up to a picture my friend Sonya sent of scones she was eating in England and I immediately had to hop out of bed and make a batch myself. @officerpatrickcarner was my hero (as usual) and went to the market in search of clotted cream.”

In case you didn’t know, the Everywhere hitmaker, unfortunately, experienced a miscarriage sometime in December 2020. She revealed to fans on the ‘gram at the time:
“Just when we were rounding third and heading home (A baseball metaphor?! I know.) 2020 was like, ‘nah, I ain’t done yet.’ December decided to really finish us off with a bang! No, literally. A bomb went off in downtown Nashville yesterday. And to further twist a dagger in my heart, I experienced my first miscarriage (ugh! Motherf**ker!).”
Fortunately, she had the support of her friends and family during the difficult time. The Breathe crooner continued:
“But alas, between the crying and binge eating of Christmas cookies, I decided to put on lipstick and a dress. We drank champagne alllll day. Made an incredible meal and sang Christmas songs snuggled up by a roaring fire. 5 more days until 2021. I’m limping to the finish line. These people, my precious family, my husband, sister and kids have been the MVP’s. I couldn’t imagine spending a year isolated with anyone else. Happy Christmas, everyone xx.”
Congratulations to Michelle and Patrick! We are so happy for you!
