Hillary Scott, the co-lead singer of Lady Antebellum, welcomed twins with her husband, drummer Chris Tyrrell, in January. The arrival of her twins came after fertility issues, and Scott ended up writing the song “Thy Will” after suffering from a miscarriage. Now, Scott is opening up in an interview with about what it was like to be pregnant with little Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn.
Scott said that she and Tyrrell decided to wait as long as they could to announce the pregnancy because of the past miscarriage. “We were taking it a week at a time. ‘When are we going to announce this news?’ Because I wasn’t sure,” she said. “I’m like, ‘With [older daughter] Eisele, I carried a certain way. With twins, I mean, I might look five months pregnant by 12 weeks. Who knows?’”
She also revealed that when she got pregnant, she was on tour with Lady Antebellum, and she nearly missed some shows because of how sick she was feeling. “You [definitely have] double the fatigue,” she said. “Ibeginning and it was always right around showtime so I had to take anti-nausea medicine that my doctor prescribed me, which thank the Lord for that stuff.”
Overall, Scott says her twins are “a double blessing from the Lord,” especially with her past miscarriage. “It was emotional, because I’m like, ‘Oh, we’re goingin our house as I hoped we would have,’” Scott said.”‘It just isn’t in the same timing that I thought it was going to be, but we are .”
