Next month, Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts will have one more reason to be a happy man, with the arrival of his third child. Joe Don and his wife, Tiffany, will welcome their second daughter, due Sept. 25.

“We haven’t named her yet, but we’re just very excited,” Joe Don reveals to Country Weekly. “I’m just excited to have my wife back, bless her heart. She doesn’t do prego real well. She’s been really sick with this one. She’s starting to feel a little better; she’s just in that uncomfortable stage now. But we're really excited. Our schedule is so crazy. I have like literally a window of time from September 22 through September 26 off, so we’re hoping [her birth] falls in that window. No pressure, Tiff!”

After the arrival Joe Don’s baby girl, the head count for Little Rascals will be at seven kids. Gary LeVox’s daughters are 10 and 14, Jay DeMarcus’ two children are 2 and 4, and Joe Don’s oldest two are 4 and 6.

“It’s crazy in the Rascal Flatts households,” says Jay, laughing. “We don’t get any sleep on the road or at home!”

Chances are Joe Don definitely won’t be getting much shut-eye before or after their show Sept. 21 in Detroit. There’s a connection between the city and expecting babies while playing there!

“Last year, Jay’s son was born while we were in Detroit, so we had to fly back that morning to be there for the birth of his son,” says Joe Don. “It would be ironic if that happens for me!”
