“It was one of those things that was on and off for few years – mostly on – and then she was the one that got away for about five years,” he told The Bobby Bones Show during a 2014 interview. “It came back around and I’ve never been happier. This little one, she’s the one, and I’m a pretty stoked dude. I’m pretty excited to say the least.”
The country star and his devoted schoolteacher bride got hitched in June 2015 during a quaint ceremony at his home. He has also admitted that she was the woman who inspired his singles “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do”, “More Than Miles”, and several other tunes. “She’s been in my soul since the day I met her… she has and will continue to inspire song after song in my life,” Gilbert once sweetly quipped to E! News.
During a media event in February 2016, Brantley took a moment to discuss his deep relationship with Amber.
“She respects the fact that it is a broken road, not to quote Rascal Flatts,” Gilbert shared. “All of that stuff that I went through, and all these other relationships, did get me back to her. And I learned a lot. Every time something went wrong and didn’t go right, I learned, and it made me better for her.”
“I still got a lot of work to do. I got a lot of learning to do. I think both of us do together,” he continued, “but I think that’s part of growing, and probably what I’m having the most fun with … It’s been really cool.”
“He leaves me notes a lot, which I love,” Amber shared with People during the 2015 BMI Awards. “Recently, he sent me a text and asked me to go on a date with him, which was super sweet.”

“Oh, I cried!” Gilbert shared with PEOPLE about learning his second child’s gender. “I was so sure it was a boy. I wasn’t ready for it to be a little girl — and man, when it was! I just wanted a healthy, happy baby, but a little girl means a whole other deal.”
“I know I have so much to learn,” he added. “You even diaper them differently, so I’m gonna be learning a whole lot of stuff from these books Amber reads — and I can’t wait!”
As you can tell from Amber’s Instagram, she enjoys cooking and working on physical fitness!
