“Aaaaaaand we’re pregnant again! Another baby Nichols on the way in 2014! ,” he tweeted. The couple welcomed their first child together, Dylan, on April 17, 2012. Joe has another daughter, Ashelyn, from a previous relationship. Joe and Heather have been open about their struggle to conceive.
Prior to Dylan’s birth, Joe and Heather suffered through five miscarriages. Heather was eventually diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that was preventing her from carrying pregnancies to full term. She shared her story through her website, More Than A Nichols’ Worth.
“Our prayers have been answered,” Heather said following Dylan’s birth. “We went through years of loss and heartbreak to get to this point and now our little baby girl is here.”
Joe recently topped the charts with his latest single, “Sunny and 75.” The song can be found on his new album, Crickets.
