The country singer – who, along with Nicole, announced the happy news last month – still can’t believe he is going to be a father.

He said: “Over the moon is literally how I feel – I’m very, very grateful!

Performing in general has taken on a whole new feeling for me, certainly in light of fatherhood and so on.”

Keith also revealed he is planning on writing a song to dedicate to his first child when Nicole gives birth in July, adding: “It has been a really beautiful journey.”

Before returning to Australia from the US, Keith is hoping to work on his upcoming studio album, which is set to include a duet with Nelly Furtado.

He told Australia’s Herald Sun: “I’m going to be doing quite a bit more songwriting and bringing some people down to Sydney to work with me.

I’ll also be doing some more work in Nashville and in Los Angeles.

“It was a blast getting to sing on a track with Nelly too – it’s a great song and I hope it pans out.”
