On the road — but thinking of home. Chris LaneHe is getting ready to welcome his second baby with his wife Lauren Bushnell Lane while also performing a series of shows amid the success of his single “Dancin’ in the Moonlight.”
“This is the hardest week in my career thus far as — as far touring wise — because it’s five shows. I don’t really do that a whole lot,” the 37-year-old country crooner exclusively told Us WeeklyHis Wednesday, August 10, show at Point Pleasant, New Jersey. “I try to pick and choose. The highest amount [of time I’m gone]It usually takes three days. And then I’m back home and when I’m at home, I’m all hands on deck. Lauren gets a break so I try to enjoy it as much as I can. That’s kind of my role.”
Lane and the BachelorAlums from season 20 are already parents to Dutton (14 months)
“I come out here and do all this for the weekends and I get home, I just know I’m exhausted, but I’ve got to step up because that’s just how it goes. When you have kids, you got to — and I want to,” the “Big, Big Plans” singer told Use. “I’m excited to run through the door on Sunday because he gets so excited.”
The former flight attendant is due on the couple’s third wedding anniversary — October 25.
“It really is crazy,” he told Use of the due date, noting that as “long as baby’s healthy then we will be happy no matter what day.”
He joked, “I just hope it’s not on Halloween. I don’t know if I want to Halloween baby.”
Lane told Use that the pair know the baby’s sex but aren’t spilling until “the very end.” He added that he’s “very anxious” and “very excited” to have two kids under two.
“It is a lot. We can barely handle the one that we’ve gotten now. He’s a maniac — in the best way,” he said. “We’re tired now. I can’t imagine how tired we’re going to be with two of them on our hands.”
Bushnell Lane also spoke out on social media about her second pregnancy struggles. “She’s doing good,” Lane told Us. “Definitely a lot sicker this time around than she was the first time, but she’s handling it great.”
The “I Don’t Know About You” singer is also celebrating the success of his and Lauren Alaina’s “country version of” the 1972 song by King Harvest.
“It’s exciting just to try it in general. I feel like you never know what people are going to love and what they’re not going to love, but I think what is great about the song is there is already a very small piece of it that has a little bit of familiarity to it. And I don’t necessarily feel you can go wrong in that,” Lane told Use. “I mean, people are singing it at shows and it’s not even on the radio. … It’s got this ‘70s summer vibe.”
The musician called it the “ultimate sign-off” that the band approved of the track in the comments section of the music video on YouTube.
“When you do a song like that, the best thing that can happen is for the artists to love the version,” he said. “I thought it was awesome.”
Alaina was the one who spoke. UsThe American Idol alum is “full of personality, hilarious,” adding that she’s “funny to be around and a lot of energy in the best kind of way. She’s a fun person to hang out with.”
