Oct. 23, 2008 — Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley had their first son, William Huckleberry Paisley, in February 2007. And when Kim found out recently she was pregnant again, she decided to use Huck to spread the news.

"I wake up pretty late when I've been out on the road," Brad told the national radio show GAC Nights: Live From Nashville. "I'd gotten back from a trip, and I was sleeping in. It was about 10 in the morning. My son wakes me up every day now — he comes in when she lets him — and he comes around the bed, brings a book and gets in bed and we read a book in the morning. And he came around, and she said, 'Here, give this to daddy.' And I saw him walk up with a pregnancy test and hand it to me. And he was just all happy. And I said, 'No, you don't get it. This is really bad for you and I. This isn't gonna be fun for us for the next nine months. We're in for it.' But that's how she told me, which was a great way to do it."

Kimberly is due in April. In the meantime, Brad has another baby to hatch: his album Play, set to debut Nov. 4. The project features guest appearances by Keith Urban, Vince Gill, Steve Wariner and the late Buck Owens, among others. Eight days after its release, Brad co-hosts "The 42nd Annual CMA Awards" with Carrie Underwood live on ABC from the Sommet Center in Nashville.
