Haley couldn't be happier about the timing of her pregnancy, as both Cannon's bandmate John Jeffers and tour manager Chris Alexander are also expecting children with their wives.

"Three of us girls in the Whiskey Myers family are expecting babies within three months of each other, so this season of life has been extra special!" she says. "Going through pregnancy and everything that comes with it at the same time as my close friends has been such an awesome experience."

"All these guys grew up together, so it will be really cool to see their babies growing up together, as well," Haley adds.

As for Cannon, "I'm ready to take this little dude hunting and fishing," he raves to PEOPLE of his son on the way, joking, "He already has more camo than me!"

Cannon and his longtime love tied the knot in October 2018 at the Gruene Estate in New Braunfels, Texas. The pair announced their engagement the previous April.

"We tried to keep it as small as possible but we both have large families," Cannon told PEOPLE of the couple's 250 guests. The band was also in attendance, as guitarist Cody Tate served as a groomsman and Alexander was best man.

Meanwhile, the "Gasoline" singer's favorite wedding moment was spending time with his nearest and dearest. "I'm just excited to marry my best friend! We have a really good group of friends and family coming and we don't get to see a lot of them too often because we're always on the road," he said.

After a six-month engagement, Cannon and Haley said the wedding was put together to accompany their busy work schedules — and "as cheesy as it sounds, I knew from the moment we met that I was going to marry Cody," Haley told PEOPLE at the time.
