Randy Houser received an earbud from his wife Tatiana after revealing she was pregnant with the couple’s second child. The “Note to Self” singer told Taste of Country he didn’t realize he had let the secret out.
“Because I kind of thought the interview was over,” Houser said. “I made a really awful joke, it was like a complete dad joke. I got quoted on it, and then my wife was horrified.”
Houser was doing an interview with Kiss Country 99.9’s TC & Dina B when he revealed his 3-year-old son, Huck, was expecting a sibling in October. “I put the milk back in the coconut, and it was done,” he joked.
“She didn’t want to announce this pregnancy,” says the singer Taste of country nights host Evan Paul, “and I thought — it was kind of like at the end and we were just chatting and then all of a sudden, boom. So I had my a– chewed .”
Houser also has a 10-year-old son from his first marriage. He says kids really love music, his youngest admiring Miranda Lambert and Alan Jackson (play “Chattahoochee and watch him dance all day”). Houser turns 47 in December, which will be 65 when his newcomer graduates from high school. The age gap between him and the other parents is something he is acutely aware of.
“I’m going to be the geriatric dad, and so are you!” he said to Paul. “The thing is, it keeps us young. You run around and chase a kid, it’ll get you off the chair a bit.”
The conversation about children started with a question about the sex of the new baby. Houser gave an unhindered “no” when asked if he wanted to reveal on this platform. Looks like his days of sharing baby secrets are behind him, for the sake of his marriage.
“Note to Self” is Houser’s first single from an album of the same name, due out November 11.
“This album came out at a time when I was thinking about who I am and what’s important to me, envisioning the kind of future I’d like to see for myself and my family,” he says of his sixth studio project. His last album, Magnolia, came out in 2019.
