It’s a girl! Andy Grammer is about to become a 1st-time dad, and we are so thrilled for the singer/songwriter & his wife Aijia! The couple announced the exciting news on March 1 while revealing they’re expecting a daughter — how sweet is that? Find out when Aijia is due here — she’s way further along than you may think.
Andy Grammer, 33, and his wife Aijia are pregnant, according to People magazine! The adorable couple are set to welcome their first child in July, as Aijia is about five months along. And already the two are overwhelmed with joy in anticipation for their little one’s arrival. “It’s been really exciting because on both sides of our family it’s the first girl, so it’s fun because it’s happy news to everyone,” Aijia gushed to the publication.

This lady right here is the reason for so many blessings in my life the biggest of which is balance. I am an explorer by nature and if left to my own devices I could adventure my life away and never experience the meaning of home. Adventure without a home to adventure from is just being lost. She is home. #happyvalentinesday #findyourhome @aijiaofficial

And while having the first girl in the family is definitely exciting, Andy’s reaction when he found out was completely priceless! “I feel like if you told me I would be having a son, I would be like, ‘Yeah, I’m gonna be a parent — I get that.’ But when the doctor was like, ‘You’re gonna have a girl,’ I was like, ‘What? Who am I?’ It’s the craziest piece of information that changes who you are,” the singer said. “It’s sweet.” Aw!
Recently opening up about his decision to abstain from sex until he wed Aijia back in 2012, Andy revealed they didn’t begin trying for a family until later on in their marriage. And apparently the two “just rolled the dice and said, ‘We’ll see what happens’ — and it worked if you’re wondering,” Aijia said with a laugh.
“Everybody is always telling you that you have to hurry because you’re running out of time,” she continued. “So there’s these two different mentalities of, ‘You’re getting older, it’s not gonna work forever,’ and then, ‘You should just focus on your career because that’s the priority.'” In the end though, Aijia and Andy have seemed to find balance between family and career.
“I think for both of us, I got to a point where I was like, ‘You know, one of them is not more important than the other.’ We want to have a family and there’s no doubt that that’s what we wanted,” Aijia said. And there’s also no doubt Andy is psyched about having a girl! “I take the role of being a father to a daughter very seriously,” he explained. “I think there’s something very special about that — there’s a lot about women’s empowerment right now; I think the coolest thing you can do is just raise a really strong daughter.” Is anyone else’s heart melting? Congrats again, you two!
