American Aquarium frontman BJ Barham is getting ready for a big arrival: The artist and his wife Rachael are expecting their first child in early 2018!

On Tuesday (Oct. 24), Barham and his wife shared their happy news via Instagram. Baby Barham is a girl, and she is due on April 4; according to her parents, she will be named Josephine Pearl. Barham writes on Instagram that she "got a clean bill of health" during a Monday (Oct. 23) doctor's appointment.

Barham's Instagram post includes a photo of sonogram pictures placed on top of a black-and-red NC State onesie; his wife's also features a sonogram photo, along with a onsie that reads "S--ts & Giggles."

"The Great 48 may have ended in early July, but the real adventure began just as we were settling back in at home," Rachael writes in her Instagram post, referencing Barham's Great 48 Tour, a solo endeavor that he calls "life-changing."

The year 2017 has been full of changes for Barham and American Aquarium: The band has seen members come and go throughout its years, but its most recent lineup completely disbanded back in April. The band's new lineup is currently on tour.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to play with new people who are energized. That’s how American Aquarium’s sound has evolved,” Barham tells The Boot of the newly assembled American Aquarium. “I’m still here, I’m still writing the songs, but the people on the record have always changed. This is American Aquarium 13.0.”

American Aquarium are also currently planning a new album that’s set to come out next year. Titled Things Change, the album is tentatively set for release in May of 2018.
