“I’m so excited!” she tells PEOPLE. “He’s super, super sweet. We made a deal before he was born. I said, ‘Look, you can cook as long as you want, as long as you come out and latch like it’s your job and have a sweet demeanor.’ He kept his part of the bargain!”

As for Nettles’ plans for her first Mother’s Day, the singer says, “We’re going to have a Mother’s Day brunch. It’s a good time around naps! We’ll do a nice brunch and just relax.”
