NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Natalie Maines, lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, may soon be singing lullabies.

Maines, 25, who married actor Adrian Pasdar in June, is pregnant, it was announced Monday. The baby is due in April.

``This is merely the first of 10 children,'' Pasdar, 35, joked.

The Dixie Chicks — Maines, Emily Erwin and Martie Seidel — have sold more than 15 million CDs. Their hits include ``Ready to Run'' and ``Goodbye Earl.''

Maines's 18-month marriage to Michael Tarabay, a former bass player for the Chicks, ended earlier this year. The marriage is Pasdar's first.
