Life is about to get more interesting for Rascal Flatts band member Jay DeMarcus. The country star is expecting his first child – a girl.

Jay DeMarcus is married to Allison DeMarcus. Allison DeMarcus, also known as Allison Alderson, is a star in her own right. The former beauty queen competed in the Miss Teen USA, Miss USA and Miss America contests. She has earned the title of Triple Crown winner for holding state beauty titles in all three systems.

The couple has been married since 2004, but this is their first child together. Jay DeMarcus is older than wife Allison by six years, but he believes the wait is well worth it. “This is a part of my life I’ve wanted for some time and just had to wait a little longer to get there.” There is no mention whether the couple will try for more babies after the baby girl is born in January.
