The Civil Wars’ Joy Williams Expecting First Child
The Civil Wars had quite a week. After winning two Grammy Awards at last night’s ceremony, one for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and one for Best Folk Album, the vintage duo also gave a stellar performance of their ever-popular tune, ‘Barton Hollow.’ Then, backstage after the performance, the female half of the duo, Joy Williams, spilled the beans that she and her husband/the band’s manager Nate Yetton have a bun in the oven.
“I’m a human bakery,” she said jokingly, as she revealed her barely noticeable baby belly backstage. Williams first leaked the news on Twitter, and her publicist later confirmed the good news to the Tennessean. With a busy schedule and no intention to slow down, Yetton says the baby will just join in on the couple’s lifestyle.
“We’ll be a little bohemian family by the time this baby comes,” he said. “The adventure continues and so do the travels.” Wiliams originally tweeted the news on Feb. 10, saying “Beyond elated to share that Nate & I are expecting our first child in late June!!! My baby bump & I will see you on the red carpet.”
With two shiny new Grammys and one little baby to look forward to, Williams tweeted her contentment last night before falling asleep. “This was a day I won’t ever forget. Grateful to the point of tears. Happily sleepless from the sweetness of it all.”
