The country music world is beyond excited about Carrie Underwood’s pregnancy news – and we are, too!

And though we could give the superstar a whole bunch of parenting advice from pros like Brad and Keith, we have a feeling the singer already knows what she’s doing.

Here’s why:

She’s supportive.

She’s had years of practice.
Underwood is already mom to rat terrier Ace and dachshund mix Penny, who helped her break her baby news to the world – and she takes them on playdates with her A-list pals. “We took them over to see Baker and Hobbs, Hillary Scott and her husband Chris Tyrrell’s pups, but they were pretty naughty while we were there,” Underwood told PEOPLE Country earlier this year. “Ace tried to mark their furniture and succeeded and Penny tried to rule the roost. All in all it wasn’t the best playdate for the pups, but their parents had a great time!”

With Mom’s talent and passion for singing, Underwood’s lucky little one is sure to nod off to his or her own private concert every night. “I love singing. To me there’s nothing better It feels good,” Underwood has told PEOPLE Country. “It makes me happy.”
