“Whatever he wants to do is great,” the 28-year-old said. “But we might get him a few things … We’ll get him all the instruments, and whichever one he picks up and plays the most, we’ll go that route.”
The singer married Gabi Dugal, who is a pediatric nurse, in 2018. She recently told People that her career has “prepared me in many ways” for taking care of a baby.
