It's been announced that country singer Jimmie Allen and his fiancee Alexis Gale are expecting a baby girl. PEOPLE reports that the 33-year-old exclusively revealed the news to them, exclaiming, "I'm headed into the girl-dad club!" He then added, "I'm happy and nervous and so excited to meet her.

This is Allen's second child, as he is already dad to a 5-year-old son named Aadyn, from a previous relationship.

"It's going to be great watching her and her big brother Aadyn grow up together," Allen went on to say, then adding, "And of course she's going to have custom Disney Princess dresses." This appears to be a reference to the fact that Allen proposed to Gale at Walt Disney World in July. "The crazy thing is, I've always wanted to have a reason to go into the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney's Magic Kingdom, and now I've got the best reason: my daughter," he quipped.
In addition to sharing the news with PEOPLE, Allen also posted a video on his Instagram page that showed the gender-reveal the couple held on a Florida beach.
