"Today the media speculated about some big news in our life. So we decided to share it with you ourselves. Love, Ben and Tricia," reads a caption that opens the minute-long clip.

The new baby is expected to arrive in "May 2015," according to the video.

The coming year will also find Macklemore & Ryan Lewis releasing a new album. On Thursday (Jan. 1), a fan posted on Twitter, "It's 2015 and I still don't have a new @macklemore album wtf." The rapper spotted the loving complaint and replied, "You will this year. Believe that".

A source later confirmed to Billboard that there will indeed be a new Macklemore album in 2015, most likely in the second half of the year. Details of a lead single and release date are currently under wraps.
