Michelle Branch is expecting her second child after a terrible miscarriage. On August 15, the Grammy Awards winner announced that she and her husband, Patrick Carney, were expecting their second child via Instagram. The couple married in April 2019 and welcomed their first child, Rhys James Carney.
Branch is also the mother to Owen Isabelle, a teen daughter she has with her ex-husband Tony Landau. She shared a photo of a batch of scones she cooked on Instagram, explaining that she did it to satisfy her pregnancy cravings.
Her husband was her “hero (as always)” for rushing to the market first thing in the morning in search of double cream for the recipe, she wrote in the caption. The ‘Goodbye to You‘ singer continued her statement by saying she was both pleased and terrified to share the news that their second child would be born in early 2022.
The 20th Anniversary of Michelle Branch’s First Album

With the publication of The Spirit Room in 2001, Branch established himself as a true celebrity. She started writing the album at the age of 16 and finished it at the age of 18. Singles like ‘Everywhere’ and ‘Goodbye to You‘ are charted at the top of the Billboard.
The Grammy winner stated in an interview with the Independent that the album was still a part of her identity. Branch is also planning a live-streamed anniversary event for September 11th and the release of the album’s complete re-recording. With a baby on the way and the release of her record, the singer seemed to have a lot to be happy about.
Michelle Branch Went Through An Unfortunate Miscarriage
The singer revealed she had experienced a miscarriage in an honest Instagram post in late December 2020. A sequence of photographs from her holiday celebrations with relatives was juxtaposed with the statement.
She described the frenetic nature of 2020 in the caption and recent happenings in her life. She mentioned that the year 2020 finished with a bang, referring to the Christmas Day bombing at an AT&T network hub in Downtown Nashville. She went on to say that things worsened after her first miscarriage and that she spent her time crying and binge-eating Christmas cookies. However, she had stopped crying and was now dressed appropriately for the occasion.
The singer ended her message positively, writing that her loved ones, including her husband, sister, and children, had been the MVPs, and she couldn’t imagine spending a year alone with anyone else. She wishes everyone a nice holiday season.
