Stephen Barker Liles of the duo Love and Theft is about to become a father for the first time. Stephen and fiancée Jenna Michelle Kennedy have announced that they are expecting a child soon.

Stephen and Jenna were engaged in May of this year in Fort Myers, Fla., and had targeted their wedding for May of 2014. Stephen’s Love and Theft bandmate, Eric Gunderson, and his wife welcomed their first child, Camden William, in March.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be a father, and Jenna is going to be such an amazing mother. You should see her with Camden, she is such a natural,” said Stephen in a statement.

Of fatherhood, Stephen adds, “It is a little surreal. When Eric and I first started playing together when we were just young songwriters and now we have families . . . it’s amazing to be able to experience this next part of life and have our kids play together. But if I have a girl, Camden still needs to get my permission first.”

The duo is best known for their No. 1 single “Angel Eyes” and spent part of 2013 touring with Tim McGraw.
