Congratulations are in order for Lukas Graham and his girlfriend, Marie-Louise Schwartz Petersen. The happy couple — who have been dating since high school — are officially expecting their first child together and we could NOT be happier for them!
Lukas Graham, 27, is going to be a dad! The Danish singer‘s girlfriend, Marie-Louise Schwartz Petersen, is expecting, and we are so excited for the soon-to-be-parents! After all, this will be both Lukas and Marie’Louise’s first child. Even better, Lukas already has a nickname picked out for his little one — aw!
“In September, a little golden nugget will be welcomed into the world,” the “7 Years” singer revealed to People magazine. “Seeing my child born is so much more important than anything else I’ve got going on.” How adorable is THAT? Clearly Lukas is beyond thrilled about welcoming his baby into the world!
And calling the child a “little golden nugget,” is even cuter! He’s seriously going to be an amazing dad. Lukas and Marie-Louise have been an item since high school, which is certainly saying a lot considering the singer is now 27 years old. But although Lukas will be on tour when their child is born, he has declared that he’ll take two months off in the fall to focus on Mom and baby.
Lukas has already had quite a year as the exciting news comes on the heels of his band‘s first LP, Lukas Graham, debuting at No. 3. On top of that, their breakout hit “7 Years,” continues to climb the Billboard charts, currently sitting at No. 6 after peaking at No. 2 earlier this spring.
And let’s not forget his epic Billboard Music Awards performance back in May — he totally killed his live rendition of “7 Years” in front of that huge, star-studded audience! “Too many people don’t have big enough balls or ovaries to be themselves. I do,” Lukas told Billboard that night, adding that it didn’t take long for him to get over stage freight.
“I was still young when I realized my voice could make people shut the f**k up.” Who know, maybe his little one will take after him! After all, his own father was the main inspiration behind his hit, “7 Years.”
Are you super excited for Lukas and Marie-Louise, HollywoodLifers? Send the happy couple your congratulations below!
