On Wednesday (July 25), Rachel Platten announced she's expecting her first child with husband Kevin Lazan on Instagram.
The 37-year-old "Fight Song" singer revealed the news with a baby bump photo and heartfelt caption, writing, "I am overwhelmed with love, joy and happiness about our baby. It’s a total miracle that I’m growing a human and my husband and I couldn’t be more thrilled."
Platten told fans that while she's wanted to share the news for months, "I became paralyzed about doing it the exact, perfect way – how to express all my total bliss and yet all this fear too? I finally realized that I can’t worry about making being ME comfortable for everybody else, I have to share this journey MY WAY: with honesty, vulnerability, love and an open heart."
She went on to admit that the journey has been a difficult battle with "serious nausea, exhaustion, constant sickness and all the awful symptoms no one wants to really talk about when sharing the 'perfect blessed journey' pregnancy." Platten promised her fans "to continue to share as much this process with you as I can. Xoxoxox, a totally happy, exhausted, not so nauseous today Rach."
