Her hit “Mama’s Song” is about to take on a whole new meaning.

Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are expecting their first child next spring, the couple announced on social media Monday.

The country star broke the happy news with a clever Instagram playing off of the very appropriate holiday.

“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier …” Underwood, 31, captioned a photo of her precious pooches wearing “I’m going to be a big brother” and “I’m going to be a big sister” shirts.

Fisher, 34, a center for the Nashville Predators, confirmed the announcement on Twitter — and gave a hint at one creative baby name.

“We haven’t picked names yet but it’s looking like Fly is gonna fly. #boyorgirl #flyfisher,” he Tweeted.

Underwood and Fisher celebrated their fourth anniversary in July. The couple married in a Southern style wedding in Georgia in 2010.
