Sarah Buxton Expecting First Child

Sarah Buxton &  Tom Bukovac

Sarah Buxton and husband Tom Bukovac will be welcoming a new member into their family this Christmas. According to Taste of Country, Sarah and Tom are expecting their first child in early December.

“Thank God that He gives us nine months to prepare, because if it was any less than that, we would all go insane!” Buxton told Taste of Country. ”Sometimes it’s like, ‘Let’s get this thing going!’ You really want the baby bump to show up, and you’re ready for everybody to see it … but there’s a lot of emotional things that have to happen before each little stage.”

Sarah and Tom got married in 2010, and the two are looking forward to becoming parents. However, they won’t be finding out the gender to their new bundle of joy until he or she makes an appearance.

Congrats to the Happy Couple!
