Arkansas' head hog is set to welcome a new addition to his family next year.

Jen Bielema, wife of Razorback head football coach Bret Bielema, posted a message Friday night on Twitter using the #BabyBielema hashtag.

"Completely overjoyed and forever grateful for our exciting addition [coming] in 2017!" she wrote shortly before 8:30 p.m.

A Razorbacks spokesman confirmed Jen Bielema is pregnant, though no further details were known.

Less than an hour after the tweet appeared, the message had been retweeted more than 140 times and liked nearly 500 times. Dozens of users replied with messages of congratulations.

It's the first child for the Bielemas, who married in 2012.

    Let's hope that if it's a girl, it doesn't look like him. I think he might agree with that.

    He's spent more time hopping on his wife than he has coaching.

    There is no excuse for rudeness, TravisBickle. Congratulations to the Bielemas on their new addition. There is no greater gift from God!

    TravisBickle, there are plenty of other forums and opportunities to express your issues with Bielema's coaching, but this is not one. It says a lot about your character. Pathetic.
