Dixie Chick Natalie Maines is expecting her second child.

Maines, 29, who sings and plays guitar, posted the news on the group’s Web site. Maines and her husband, actor Adrian Pasdar, are “ecstatic about the news.”

The couple, who were married in 2000, have a 2-year-old son, Jackson Slade Pasdar.

Maines didn’t announce a due date.

“Can you imagine the next tour for us? Five kids (or more) back stage? Oh, the THOUGHT is just exhausting,” the Web site said.

Martie Maguire, the fiddle and mandolin player in the group, announced in November she is expecting twins. The third Chick, Emily Robison, has a 1-year-old son.

The performers said they were looking “forward to a year of healthy babies and further musical inspiration.”

The Dixie Chicks’ hits include “Landslide,” “Ready to Run” and “Wide Open Spaces.”
