The singer and his girlfriend Jena Frumes are expecting their first child together and Jason admits he “couldn’t be more excited” about the news.
Sharing an announcement video on Instagram, he captioned it: “Couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter in our life @jenafrumes (sic)”
Back in December, Jason revealed he wants to have children but was in no “rush” but had really enjoyed Jena’s company during lockdown.
He said: “I’m not one to rush anything but I’d be lying if I said the thought didn’t cross my mind. As the years go by, you’re like, damn, what is it all for? I watch all my peers have kids and I still don’t have any, so I think about it often. I try to be a cool uncle and give them experiences I didn’t have.
“But then I can always hand them back … It kind of solidifies things when you’re spending that much time around somebody. You either love it or you hate it. But it’s been pretty great and a lot of fun, so I’m enjoying it. We were born on the same day, so we’re so similar. My mum hasn’t met her yet – she’s only met her over the phone so we’ll be going to Miami soon for that to happen.”
Jason and Jena moved in together amid the coronavirus pandemic and he admits he felt the benefits of the health crisis.
He explained: “I’ve never been home since I was a kid. I do so much travelling – last year, I spent about 60 days at home.
“This year, I’ve been here pretty much the entire time and it’s been unbelievable getting to be in my own space. I can’t imagine leaving it! There’s no way I’d live the same way again – there’s a difference between working to live and actually having a life. It’s been really eye-opening.”
