Congratulations are in order!! Today, during a scheduled video chat via Shindig, The Dollyrots' Luis Cabezas and Kelly Ogden announced through song that they were expecting their first child together.  During the video chat which began at 3 pm West Coast time, Kelly and Luis sang "We're having a baby!" and revealed that they were having a baby boy.  "We're having a little Dollyrot!" Kelly announced.

This explains last month's announcement that the group, together since 2001, would cease touring for the rest of 2013 to work on their new record. They played their last gigs early this month at the Troubadour and Molly Malones. Who would've guessed that Kelly was pregnant!? That probably explains  one of their last gigs at Molly Malones in which they played an acoustic set.

 "I have boobs for the first time in my life," Kelly gushed.  "That's one bonus."

During the video chat, fans asked a variety of questions ranging from possible baby name (They hadn't decided yet), when they were touring the UK again (haven't decided) and when there new record would be finished (Luis said they record will be completed, hopefully before Kelly gives birth).
