Any Civil Wars fans out there?

I can't fake anything, so I'll just come right out and say I have no idea what they sing. This is coming from someone who was missing Justin Bieber at Sunday night's Grammys. But I loved Taylor Swift, and Rihanna was better than ever, as was, of course, Adele...and Jennifer Hudson, who paid tribute to Whitney Houston while respectfully holding back and not outdoing her (loved that).


On Sunday night, The Civil Wars scored two Grammys — Best Folk Album and Best Country Duo/Group. And I've just learned that earlier that day their singer, Joy Williams (29), took to Twitter to announce more great news:

Beyond elated to share that Nate & I are expecting our first child in late June!!! My baby bump & I will see you on the red carpet. :)

Joy also tweeted that she suffered some major morning sickness:


24 hour morning sickness for months. There were days I thought it would never go away...

This is the first child for Joy and her husband Nate Yetton.


Love! xo Haley-O
