BOSTON (AP – Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is going to be a Pop.

The 43-year-old conductor and his wife, violinist Lucia Lin, are expecting a baby sometime in late summer.

“Luci and I are thrilled to be expecting our first child,” Lockhart said in a statement. “Luci and the baby are doing well. The Boston community has always been very supportive of me, and Luci and I really appreciate your good wishes at this special time in our lives,” Lockhart said.

Lockhart and Lin were married in September 1996.
