"I'm so excited," Marcel says of their engagement. He also reveals that Jessica has just moved into his Nashville-area home and is getting settled in. And they're already talking long-term about starting a family.
"We'll probably get pregnant in another three years, when she's 29," he says. "She wants to be pregnant before she's 30."
Jessica, a former teen country star, is best known for her No. 1 hit, 'Who I Am' in 2000. Marcel charted with the song 'Country Rock Star' in 2002. Both are accomplished songwriters as well. Marcel wrote Trace Adkins' current hit, 'This Ain't No Love Song,' and Josh Gracin's 'Nothin' To Lose.' His songs have also been recorded by Jessica, Rascal Flatts, John Anderson, Big & Rich, Pat Green, LeAnn Rimes and more.
A song Marcel and Jessica wrote together, 'Summer Girl,' appears in the upcoming Gwyneth Paltrow/Tim McGraw film, 'Country Strong.' It's sung by actress Leighton Meester, who co-stars in the film.
