Eric Decker and new wife Jessie James have announced they're expecting their first child.
The NFL star and country singer, whose new Eric & Jessie: Game On reality series will debut on E! next week, got married in June and are currently anticipating the birth of their first baby in March 2014.
"Excited to share some news with y'all. We are having a baby," James tweeted Saturday.
"[It's] definitely been very rough with morning sickness," she told E! News. "It hasn't been quite blissful yet [but] I'm just so happy to be pregnant and to become a new mommy, that's taking over the feeling of being sick."
James admitted the pregnancy news came as a bit of a "surprise at first."
"It wasn't planned," she said. "But when we did find out we both started crying and hugging each other. We're so excited and feel so blessed with having a baby. We're so excited."
The couple apparently doesn't know whether they're expecting a little boy or girl yet.
"We don't know [the baby's gender] yet, and I don't know when we'll find out," added James. "There's no preference, it's cliche, but we'd be so happy with either one."
Decker and James announced their engagement in early April 2012.
Eric & Jessie: Game On, which was previously titled Love and Other Contact Sports, will premiere Sunday, September 29 at 10PM ET/PT on E!.
The new series will feature the couple planning their wedding while juggling their high-profile careers, family and friends. In the debut episode, Decker will be prepping for the upcoming NFL season with his wife's full support.
