“I’m not an emotional guy, but this has got me crying like a baby,” “The Weekend” singer tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’m pretty good around other folks now, but when I’m by myself, if I look at one of the pictures from the doctor’s office, I lose a few tears.”
The pregnancy was, Gilbert explains, a total — joyful — surprise. The singer and his wifeAmber had been trying for a baby almost since they married in June 2015.
“We’d been to see a fertility specialist, and two different folks that told me it would be close to a miracle if it happened without IVF,” he says. “I’m not much of a quitter, but I was really, really frustrated.”
