Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and actress Michelle Branch announced her pregnancy with her husband, Patrick Carney, on Sunday. The couple revealed the news of expecting their second child, with the 'Leave the Pieces' singer taking to Instagram to post photos of a batch of scones she had earlier prepared. Branch posted the pictures and wrote, "You know you’re pregnant when... Woke up to a picture my friend Sonya sent of scones she was eating in England and I immediately had to hop out of bed and make a batch myself. @officerpatrickcarney was my hero (as usual) and went to the market in search of double cream. Couldn’t be more excited (and nervous! Hello, pregnancy after miscarriage anyone?!) to announce baby Carney is coming early 2022! *recipe is @nigellalawson, duh." Check out her post below:

Last year, Michelle Branch revealed that she had suffered her first miscarriage. "Just when we were rounding third and heading home (A baseball metaphor?! I know.) 2020 was like, 'nah, I ain’t done yet,'" she said. Branch further said at the time, "December decided to really finish us off with a bang! No, literally. A bomb went off in downtown Nashville yesterday. And to further twist a dagger in my heart, I experienced my first miscarriage…" Branch and Carney are already parents to a boy named Rhy James, who was born in August 2018. The couple married at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans in April 2019.
