Having kids changes everything, and well, that’s the problem. Dad-to-be Brantley Gilbert is looking for baby insight that’s much more specific than that.

The “Bottom’s Up” singer revealed in May that he and wife Amber were expecting their first child. They struggled to get pregnant they toldĀ People at the time, and now they’re struggling with what life changes to expect. Reality is setting in, in other words, and they’re doing their best to get ready.

Brantley for one seems to be taking advice anywhere he can get it, though he’s not heard anything he can work with just yet. “What’s funny is the main advice that I’ve been given isn’t really advice; it’s just a statement,” he says through his record label with a laugh. “Everybody says, ‘Man you have no idea how much your life is gonna change!’ It’s like, open ended. Alright, cool, thanks. So anything on how it’s gonna change?”

Great question, of course. Unfortunately, that’s our best “advice,” too. At least the happy couple knows they’re expecting a boy. Good luck guys!
