Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus And Wife Expecting First Child

Our Country

What's in the water that the Rascal Flatts crew has been drinking, lately? Back in March, guitarist Joe Don Rooney announced he and wife Tiffany Fallon will be expecting a baby in September. Now, bassist Jay DeMarcus is stepping up to the plate--he and wife Allison are looking at a special delivery, set to arrive in January 2011.

What makes this little Rascal particularly special: It's the first child for DeMarcus and his wife. Rooney already has a son, 2-year-old Jagger; while lead singer Gary LeVox is a proud papa to two school-aged daughters.

DeMarcus, naturally, is delighted about their upcoming arrival, stating, "Allison and I are thrilled about becoming parents."

However, he couldn't resist a bit of kidding around: "I am confident Ali will be a wonderful mother, because she has done an incredible job raising me over the past six years."  

DeMarcus met his wife, a former Miss Tennessee and CMT personality, when she was cast in the video for "These Days." The couple married in 2004.

A fun little piece of trivia: Allison DeMarcus's sister is married to MuzikMafia member James Otto, so the new baby will have a rockin' uncle as well as a Rascal of a dad. With that kind of family tree, we're certain the little one is destined for Nashville greatness someday.

Hearty congrats, Jay and Allison!
