Although Sara Evans is still planning her wedding, the country singer is already talking about expanding her family with fiancé Jay Barker.
“Jay and I have seven kids together [from previous marriages], and I would definitely love to have another child [with him],” the 37-year-old said. “He’s just too cute. I just can’t imagine not having a baby with him.” (Evans has three children with her ex-husband, Craig Schelske, and Barker has four children.)
But, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant was quick to add that she is not rushing into anything. “We still have plenty of time, and I’m in no hurry because I hate being pregnant.”
Evans was speaking on CMA Celebrity Close-Up, which will air July 19 and 26 on GAC TV.
Although the country star is keeping the details of her wedding top secret, she’s not afraid to spill the beans about her first date (and kiss!) with her husband-to-be. “We got introduced, and we started talking by email and texting and talking on the phone, and we were just like two girls, I swear.”
After getting to know each other over the phone, Barker asked Evans if he could come to Nashville to meet her in person, and, of course, she agreed. “So, we met at the park, and we decided to throw a softball for our first date. And he’s an athlete, so I wanted to impress him with my mad skills,” Evans confessed. “We played softball, and went and got cheeseburgers, and we just could not stop talking. I’m madly in love with him.”
Barker, a former football quarterback for the University of Alabama, is “such a gentleman,” the singer gushed. “He didn’t kiss me on our first date or the second or third. He’s very old-fashioned in that sense.”
So, what is it about Barker that makes him Mr. Right? “He is the male version of me. I know that sounds really narcissistic, like I just want another me – but I feel like I’m marrying my best friend.”
