Leave it to Brantley Gilbert to incorporate a high-powered rifle into the gender reveal of his upcoming newborn.
Brantley and his wife, Amber, revealed they are expecting a baby boy yesterday (June 6) by shooting a rifle at a target filled with blue powder. As the bullet struck the canister, blue smoke filled the air and signaled to the almost 40 attendees gathered in Jefferson, Ga., that the Gilberts are expecting a baby boy.
“It seemed like a fun, different way to do the reveal,” said Brantley in a press release. “And it felt like something that I’d really do. But I don’t think any of us thought we would get so emotional.”
Brantley and Amber, who have known each other since childhood, were married in June 2015. Last month, the couple revealed they are expecting their first child in November.
Brantley kicked off the summer leg of his The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour in Tampa on June 2.
