The Civil Wars’ Joy Williams Expecting First Child!

Bauer-Griffin

The Civil Wars are definitely in a celebratory mood this morning. In addition to winning two Grammy awards last night (Feb. 12), for Best Folk Album and Best Country Duo/Group Performance, duo partner Joy Williams announced she is also pregnant!

“I’m a human bakery,” she joked backstage after last night’s big win (quote via Nashville’s Tennessean). The baby is the first one for Joy and her husband, Nate Yetton, who also serves as the band’s manager.

“We’ll be a little bohemian family by the time this baby comes,” Nate added. “The adventure continues, and so do the travels.”

Joy can certainly take parenting — and travel — lessons from her duo partner, John Paul White, who took time out last night to thank his supportive family. “We’re in a van and a bus all year long, and my wife and kids never see me,” he noted, “so I’d like to thank them.”

The Civil Wars will take their award-winning music overseas next month, when they do a series of shows in the United Kingdom. See their tour schedule here.
