Shay Mooney has some new material to work with now that he and his fiancee are expecting!

The country crooner, who comprises half of the duo Dan + Shay, took to Instagram on Saturday to share the happy news that his fiancée and former Miss Arkansas Hannah Billingsley is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

“Gonna have a new band member in the Mooney family… 2017 is gonna be the start of our best adventure yet! Mini Mooney is comin in hot. I love you @hannah.billingsley,” Mooney, 24, captioned a photo of the couple holding up a onesie that says, “I’m With The Band.”

Billingsley, 25, shared the same photo on her Instagram account, and wrote, “Looks like 2017 is going to be one for the books! I love you like crazy @shaymooney..Let the adventures begin.”

The couple recently took to Instagram to talk about their other latest milestone. In August, the couple, who have been together since 2014, got engaged and excitedly shared the news on social media.


“I liked it … so I put a ring on it. I’m the luckiest man in the world. Hannah, I love you,” Mooney wrote in an Instagram of the couple post-engagement.

Mooney said it was love at first sight for him, when they first met through mutual friends and started their relationship by exchanging text messages.

“From the very first time I saw her, I knew I wanted to marry her,” Mooney told PEOPLE exclusively. “She’s stunning. I finally convinced her to come to a show in Fayetteville, Arkansas.”
