Aly Michalka announced she was pregnant on Wednesday, by sharing a seaside snap of her bourgeoning baby bump.

It will be the 34-year-old Aly & AJ singer’s first child with her husband of eight years – commercial director Stephen Ringer – and the baby is due in May. 

Aly (born Alyson) first discovered she was expecting on the morning of her sold-out September 8th concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles during her With Love From Tour.

‘Our little one has been on stage with me across three states already and has even done some international traveling!’ Michalka – who boasts 625K Instagram followers – wrote.

‘We’re waiting to find out the gender cuz I’ve always loved a good surprise, but in the meantime we’ve been busy getting the nursery ready, meeting with my birth team, eating more protein than usual, going to Pilates, getting good sleep, and drinking lots of water.

‘Somehow we’ve been able to still spend days in the studio writing music which hopefully finds its way into baby’s soul. I’m so grateful for all the amazing women I’ve leaned on these past six months (you know who you are) it makes me hopeful about the goodness in the world.’

The Baby Lay Your Head Down songstress’ Instagram slideshow received congratulatory comments from her former Hellcats co-star Ashley Tisdale as well as four-time Grammy nominee Jewel. 

Aly – who’s been craving tacos and birria – hasn’t experience any of the stereotypical nausea associated with having a baby on board.

‘It’s been a really easy pregnancy, which I feel really lucky and blessed to have experienced,’ Michalka told People on Wednesday.

‘Recently, it’s started to feel really real just because I’m now starting to show — and I took my belly ring out, which means that the stomach is really popping out.’

The SoCal native originally began dating the 39-year-old cinematographer in 2012 after meeting on the set of Andy Landen’s film Sequoia, which he DPed and she acted in.

‘I can see Stephen being a really great dad, obviously, which I think is a reason why I wanted to have kids with him,’ Aly gushed to the outlet.

‘He’ll be very tuned in to their feelings and emotions.’

Michalka and Ringer – who do not plan on having a gender reveal party – have picked out six potential names for their child.

‘We want the name to feel unique, but I also don’t want people to roll their eyes, like, “This is such a celebrity kid name. This is so ridiculous,”‘ the Natalist brand ambassador laughed.

‘So I’m like, let’s just stick with a cool classic name, maybe something that sounds like an author or a writer or a musician.’

Stephen hasn’t had an IMDb credit since 2016 as he’s shifted to directing fashion spots for companies like Loro Piana, Matches, and Giuliva Heritage.
