Today, PEOPLE helped share the exclusive news that Colton Dixon and his wife of four years, Annie, are expecting their first child together this fall.
“PEOPLE helped us share our engagment, wedding and honeymoon news, so it was only natural that we wanted to partner with them to share this incredibly special next step for us,” Colton remarked.
Glad that their secret is now out there, Dixon told the outlet, “Becoming a dad is something I’ve always looked forward to. Whether seeing other kids with their parents or reminiscing on the times I had with my own when I was young, these are moments to be cherished. Annie and I are ecstatic about this exciting new chapter! We are also relieved that this is no longer a secret.”
Annie added that their baby on the way “is truly a dream come true,” telling PEOPLE, “As a first-time mom, I’ve felt really vulnerable navigating this new territory, but the kindness from fellow moms has help put me at ease, along with the support of my husband. I think I will be able to understand life in new ways, and though I know it’s a big learning curve, I’m excited for the next chapter,” she continues. “Colton and I have always wanted children. We’ve always said, ‘One day.’ And that day is here! I am so grateful for this gift of bringing a child into the world!”
Little did he know, but Dixon’s first new single in three years, and debut with Atlantic Records, is the perfect song to coincide with the couple’s big news. “Miracles” is quickly making an impact at Christian radio and the lyrics talk about how some things are more than coincidence, that there’s more to life than meets the eye, and that miracles happen all around us every day.
