Emerson Drive’s Brad Mates and Wife Expecting Baby Boy
The couple have revealed they're expecting a boy next month. With the due date quickly approaching, Brad is still trying to grasp the concept of being a father. "It's a little surreal right now," says the singer. "I still don't believe that we're going to be parents soon. I walk around the house now and see all these new toys, clothes, bottles, diapers, nursery ... it's like, 'Where's the baby?' So until we bring him home, I can only wonder how it's all going to feel. Jana and I are so excited for the baggy eyes and sleepless nights ahead ... ohhh no!"
Brad and Jana, who tied the knot in October of 2008, will name their son Tyler. Jana's twin sister, Jill, is married to Emerson Drive's fiddle player, David Pichette. Jill and David are proud parents to daughter, Emma, born Nov. 21, 2008.
