Eli Young Band’s Jon Jones and Wife Expecting Baby Boy
The Eli Young Band is expanding yet again.
Bass player Jon Jones and his wife Sarah are expecting a baby boy on Dec. 23!
Jones announced the pregnancy today and laughed about the similarities between him and frontman Mike Eli. “It’s funny that in the band, Mike got married first, and then me. Then Mike and Kacey got pregnant and had their baby girl in July, and Sarah and I are right behind them.”
The college sweethearts have been talking about expanding their family for a long time. He told PEOPLE how he found out that they were expecting.
“We were on the road when she found out, so she sent me a picture of about a half-dozen positive pregnancy tests,” he said.
“She wanted to be sure! It’s something you wish you could find out together, but she knew she couldn’t keep it to herself that long. When she called I could hear the excitement in her voice.”
During his time off the road, Jones has been going to doctors appointments with Sarah, shopping for the baby necessities, painting the nursery, and trying to pick a name.
“It took Sarah and me a month to pick out our couches for the living room, so we’re going back and forth a lot. Our goal is to have a name chosen by the time he is born.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
