Christian contemporary artist Kari Jobe is expecting her first child with husband Cody Carnes, with the happy couple expecting the baby to arrive in February next year.
Jobe made the announcement on her Facebook page by sharing an adorable photo of her standing side by side with Carnes. Both of them hold a guitar on one hand and, between them, they hold a small guitar using their other hands. “Adding a member to the band in February 2016!! #BabyCarnes,” Jobe wrote.
Jobe’s fans are overjoyed because of their announcement. As of Friday, the photo had received over 243,000 likes already with over 6,000 shares.
“Congratulations! Praying for perfect health, perfect peace, perfect love, and perfect delivery for you and your precious tiny gift,” a fan commented on her photo. Another person wrote: “Completely happy for you! Your ministry has blessed me beyond reason! I had wondered if your pretty little top was flowing for a reason! God is going to bless you and your new addition beyond reason! Be blessed mommy and daddy!!!”
Christian personality Patricia King left a message of congratulations: “You both are a great blessing to the Body and we decree your child will be a world shaker for the Kingdom of God. All the days of your child’s life will be full of the blessing and favor of God. Love what God is doing through you both!”
Jobe and Carnes tied the knot in November 2014. The Christian singer recently described her wedding as more than a dream and more than a reality. For Jobe, it was simply a “taste of heaven.”
“I’ve decided that God loves weddings. His presence was stronger than I’ve ever felt in my whole life. I’m so very thankful for those of you who were there with us—we experienced such a sweet time with you. Thank you for always celebrating and supporting what God is doing in my life—and now my husband @codycarnes,” she wrote.
