There have been a lot of bloggers talking about James Otto and his wife, Amy Otto, expecting their first child in August. So for those of you who didn’t realize that Jay DeMarcus (from Rascal Flatts), and James Otto are brothers-in-law, I thought I post it that way. Just for something different.
That is to say that Mrs. DeMarcus and Mrs. Otto are sisters. So when the Ottos welcome their new arrival in October, Allison and Jay will become a aunt and an uncle.
I’ve always followed the Miss Tennessee Pageant, it’s a Miss American Preliminary, and that used to be cool. Anyway, I got to meet both Allison and Amy when I was in Jackso, Tenn., for the pageants. I wish I could say they remembered me, but I’m with a very small newspaper, so I doubt it … but if you do – Hi ladies!
Amy was Miss Lexington, back in 1997 or 1998, I think it was. And most of us know that Allison was named Miss Tennessee in in 2002, I believe it was.
James told People Magazine, “Amy and I are so excited and feel so blessed,” says the “Just Got Started Lovin’ You” singer. “I am overwhelmed with joy at the idea of becoming a father! This is truly going to be an amazing, life-altering experience.”
So the whole point of this post tonight is to say Congratulations to the new Mom-and-Dad to be, and to the new Aunt-and-Uncle to be … Amy and James Otto, and Allison and Jay DeMarcus.
Later – Time for the Olympics!
