Jessie James has something new to sing about: she’s pregnant!

The country crooner and her husband, Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, are expecting their first child in March, James announced on Twitter Saturday.

“Excited to share some news with y’all. We are having a baby,” she Tweeted, along with a picture of the future parents posing at a recent event.

In the photo, James, 25, is showing off her new shape — and her budding belly! — in a fitted orange and black printed mini dress.

Despite a shaky start with morning sickness — things have “been very rough” — the “Wanted” singer admits any tummy troubles pale in comparison to pending parenthood.

“I’m just so happy to be pregnant and to become a new mommy, that’s taking over the feeling of being sick,” the mom-to-be tells E! News.

Although the couple — who will soon appear in their own reality show, Eric & Jessie: Game On — are ecstatic there’s a baby on the way, James admit they were initially shocked by the news.

“[It] was a surprise at first, it wasn’t planned. But when we did find out, we both started crying and hugging each other,” she shares, adding the have yet to find out the sex of the baby.

Explains James, “There’s no preference. It’s cliché, but we’d be so happy with either one.”
