Country singer Carrie Underwood’s baby announcement was brought not by a stork, but by two tiny dogs.

Underwood, the winner of six Grammy awards, is expecting her first child, according to a whimsical photo the star posted to Twitter on Monday, USA Today reports.

In the photo, the former American Idol songstress cuddles her two dogs, each wearing shirts proclaiming that they’ll soon be a big brother and a big sister.

“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day…Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier!” Underwood tweeted, along with the picture.

This will be the first child for Underwood and husband hockey player Mike Fisher. Fisher retweeted his wife’s announcement, USA Today says, and also posted his own in which he ventured an unusual name for the baby boy or girl.

“We haven’t picked names yet but it’s looking like Fly is gonna fly,” he said.
