As Blake Shelton continues to plan his wedding to fellow country singer Miranda Lambert, he theorizes why so many of his fellow country singers have recently become new parents.
 
"There's been several ice storms in Nashville lately. And the cable goes out and there's nothing else to do," he said. "I mean, you're sitting there with your wife or husband. You know if there's nothing else to do, you're probably gonna end up hookin' up ... Next thing you know, [Rascal Flatts'] Jay DeMarcus actually has a kid."
 
Also new parents are Dierks Bentley, James Otto, Josh Turner and Luke Bryan. Bryan and his wife, Caroline, welcomed their second child, Tatum Christopher, into their family last August.
 
"He married over his head. He probably figures he's got a hot wife, and she's funny and cool," joked Shelton. "The only way he can really keep her is to try to get her pregnant. That's what's going on with Luke."
 
Shelton gets a little more serious when he discusses Lambert, a recent Grammy winner.
 
"I'm constantly in awe of the things that she does and she says and the way she looks," he said. "It doesn't get old to me. I don't get tired of it."
