She’s had to perfect some mothering skills dealing with the hopefuls on “Duets,” and now Jennifer Nettles, 37, will put those skills to better use: She’s pregnant.

Nettles, a Douglas, Ga., native and frontwoman of Sugarland, is expecting her first child with husband Justin Miller, according to People magazine. The couple married in November and the baby is expected by their first anniversary. This is the first child for both.

Sugarland recently announced an Aug. 23 show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta.

OK I admit it I did it. It was a fun night in Oklahoma city after the after concert party. She started singing Oohhh Uhhh Ohhh Ou to me and my pants just fell off. The rest you can Imagine.

I wonder if the kid will be as annoying and affected as she is

At least this is a child with one male and one female parent…best chance of growing up normal!!!

I hate when people add rude comments to something as wonderful as this. Hope everything goes well for Jennifer and her husband.

Having both a mother and a father is great, but in no way does it equate to a child being normal!!!

That one music video where she’s a stalker chick freaks me out.

That one music video where she duets with Jon Bon Jovi gets my props.

Pregnancy is so much more important when it happens to celebrities than us ‘normal’ folks. So newsworthy. NOT.

Steve you sound so gay. I bet you live in or around mid-town. If you saw a woman you would likely throw rocks at it

I thought she was and still think she is. The “alternative” lifestyle is not as welcomed in the country music arena as it is in other arena’s, so who knows?!?! Just because she is married to a man and is having a baby, doesn’t mean she is straight. It could all be for appearances or quite possibly it’s not. However, either way, I hope she has a healthy pregnancy and the baby is happy and healthy, too. This is a wonderful time in her life, for sure!

Actually, every child has a father…somewhere. It’s the Daddy part that worries me.

I agree this is not really newsworthy, but is it any less so than Snookie’s baby. Nothing wrong with an apparently happy couple being happy to have a child.

And when did the stage collapse become her fault? And, Crumpy,, I think your gaydar is on the fritz.

Seeing is how she is a liberal I’m surprised she isn’t getting a Hoover and getting rid of it.

If Jennifer was a lesbian she would be the first to say it, she is who she is and doesn’t try to hide anything. I wish them nothing but the Best with everything! May Gob Bless you both and watch over Jennifer and the arrival of their Sugar baby.
Jennifer gives soo much of herself, time and money that she never talks about or uses to further her career. The releash that see is expecting is for her fans and friends, PERIOD! nothing to do with celebrity. Again may everything be great for you both during this joyous time in you’re lifes!!
All the hateful speak, can take their hate fill lifes and GO AWAY!
