Macklemore is going to be a dad! The rapper and his fiancee Tricia Davis are expecting their first child together, the couple confirmed on Saturday. They decided to go public with the news after outlets began to speculate that Davis was expecting a baby. Macklemore (whose real name is Ben Haggerty) and Davis made their announcement in video form.

The clip opens with the title card: “Today the media speculated about some big news in our life. So we decided to share it with you ourselves. Love, Ben and Tricia.” Then we see the couple at a doctor’s office, with Davis getting an ultrasound. Surrounded by family, they embrace while looking at the sonogram images. Their baby is due in May.

During an “Ellen DeGeneres Show” appearance last year, following his wedding-themed performance of “Same Love” at the Grammy Awards, Macklemore opened up about his relationship with Davis. “My fiancée was with me when we were printing up 20 shirts at a time to sell at a show with 15 people there,” he said. “She’s been with us every step of the way. She produces our videos, she’s our tour manager, she’s been there from the beginning. When we won Best New Artist she kind of broke down into tears and I was like, all right, we are definitely being watched by 30 million people right now.”

Now their family is going to get a little bigger. Check out the sweet video announcement below. Congrats to the couple!
