Rachel Platten is expecting her second child.
The ‘Fight Song’ hitmaker and her husband Kevin Lazan will have their second child, Rachel announced on Instagram.
Alongside a picture of herself debuting her baby bump, she wrote, “Here’s the other half of what I created this year. Baby # 2 comes in hot. That was a tough secret to keep applies. “
The 39-year-old singer and her husband are already parents to two-year-old daughter Violet Skye and recently celebrated 10 years of marriage in July.
Rachel wrote a sweet homage to Kevin on social media at the time of her anniversary, saying, “My best friend, my soul mate, my greatest champion, my solid ground, the absolute love of my life. Kevin, you are the funniest person I have ever met, you are the smartest, sexiest, silliest, consistent, nicest, loyal, funniest. You are my secret weapon, my shoulder to cry on, my whole world. I love the life we’ve built. I love to see how you are Violet’s dearest dad. I love the lessons we learned. I love the highs and I love the lows.
“I love who you were 15 years ago when we first met, and I loved you 10 years ago when we said I did, and frankly, I love you even more now. Ours is a true love story written in the stars. Thank you sweet husband for everything. Happy anniversary. (sic) ”
And Rachel shared her struggles with “mother’s guilt” last month, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic made her realize how much time she normally spends away from her daughter.
But the singer learns to have more “grace” for herself than she said she wanted to show her toddler “this example of a boss”.
She said, “I don’t know what it is – but the time I spent at home and not on tour this year and available for Violet was GORGEOUS. But it’s a stark contrast to what I was can be.” Where my career is busy and now that it’s picking up speed again and I see what life could be like soon, I just feel sad and GUILTY.
“And then the wise little violet picks up my fear and clings tight and needs me MORE. And then there is more guilt because my career needs me too. And then there are all of these feelings of not enough of me to walk around with the guilt mixed up, and it’s one hell of a brutal cocktail to be honest. Wahhh.
“I want grace for myself when I try to juggle everything. I wouldn’t talk to a friend like that and I’m sick of the way I talked to myself. (sic) ”
