Dierks Bentley, with decidedly shorter hair, spoke to a Jacksonville radio station during an appreciation event for the military and revealed how his wife Cassidy let him know that their third bundle of joy was on the way. The pregnancy, according to Bentley, was sort of a surprise, but not really.

The Bentleys don't yet know if they will welcome another girl or if they are about to have their first son, but they will learn the sex soon, according to the 'Come a Little Closer' singer.

Bentley revealed that he was working when he learned he was about to be a father again. He was in Phoenix, playing a gig, when his wife called him to tell him to sit down so she could share the good news that their third offspring was coming.

The country star, who is opening a bar in his Scottsdale hometown, was asked if he was surprised about the news of the expanding family. He said that the pregnancy was "kinda planned, kinda unplanned... it works out pretty good." It always does.

The third child in the Bentley brood will join Evelyn, 4, and Jordan, 2. Their baby brother or sister is due in the fall.
