Stephen Barker Liles of Love and Theft and Fiancee Expecting a Baby
It’s been a domestic sort of year for the men of Love and Theft. Stephen Barker Liles announced Wednesday (Aug. 28) that he and his fiancee are expecting their first baby later this year. In March, bandmate Eric Gunderson welcomed his first child.
Liles is engaged to Jenna Michelle Kennedy. People reports that the baby’s due date is Dec. 3, meaning wedding plans are being put on hold. “Right now we’re more focused on nursery colors than wedding colors,” Kennedy says.
It’s not clear if that means the May 2014 target date for the wedding has been adjusted. The singer proposed to Kennedy in May among a romantic scene along the beach in Fort Meyers, Fla. A friend captured the whole thing on camera, and both Liles and his fiancee both broke into tears before sharing the news with friends, family and fans.
Last summer, Love and Theft released their second studio album. The self-titled project has introduced three singles so far, including the current single, ‘If You Ever Get Lonely.’
