Luke Combs and his wife Nicole are expecting their first child - a boy - this month. Nicole took to Instagram Stories this week to answer some fan questions about her pregnancy. She says that they want to make sure their son spends more time outside and less time in front of the television. When Nicole was asked about pregnancy cravings, she said that she's mainly been craving sweets and fruits. During her first trimester the smell of food cooking made her sick, so she lived off waffles, fruit, yogurt and protein shakes for awhile. When Nicole was asked about the baby's name, she just said that he will most likely take the name of someone. Nicole says she can't wait to share her son's nursery with the fans when it's finished.
