John RichIt's a boy! We've heard the rumors but now have confirmation on the gender of John Rich's first bundle of joy.

"It's a he!" the proud dad-to-be told The Boot Wednesday night on the CMA Awards red carpet. "We're going to name him Cash, after Johnny of course."

With baby Cash Rich due in the next few weeks, John says he's parking the tour bus to make sure he's home for the baby's birth.

"I didn't book a New Year's Eve show," he says. "I'm going to stay at home and wait on the big arrival ... maybe get him some rhinestone diapers and a rhinestone pacifier!"

Cash is the first child for John and wife Joan Rich. The new parents will celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary this December.
