“I’m not an emotional guy, but this has got me crying like a baby,” Brantley tells People. “I’m pretty good around other folks now, but when I’m by myself, if I look at one of the pictures from the doctor’s office, I lose a few tears.”

News of his wife’s pregnancy also comes just in time for Brantley’s fifth anniversary of sobriety.

“This Dec. 18 will be five years without drinking for me,” he says. “I got a long way away from the things that I was raised to prioritize: being a husband and a good father. Coming back to that and this happening, especially unexpectedly ... My heart just feels full.”
