Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds and Nico Vega's Aja Volkman-Reynolds' Weirdly Perfect Romance
"We are definitely going to be an out-of-the-box family," says Reynolds. "We try not to compare anything about our family to others. We wake up every day and just make decisions that we feel are the best for us. I think our children are in for quite an adventure."
Pregnancy hasn't bridled Volkman-Reynolds' sense of adventure, considering the singer only stopped touring with Nico Vega in her seventh month of pregnancy. The group remains an L.A. staple, with an album slated for release later this year.
As if they didn't already have enough going on, the husband and wife team also formed a side project, Egyptian. "Fade," off Egyptian's self-titled EP, landed a spot on the soundtrack of the film Answers to Nothing, in which Volkman-Reynolds made her professional acting debut, alongside comedian-cum-actor Dane Cook.
Despite the music industry's shaky track record for having a thriving family as well as a career, the couple remains focused and committed -- and their child has an unconventional and colorful future ahead of her. As for growing up and throwing on one of her parents' records, Volkman-Reynolds isn't expecting much.
"I don't think any child thinks their own parent is cool after a certain age, so who knows if they will enjoy the music," she says, laughing. "We both have incredibly positive messages in our music, and I hope that she can see that we have both used our ability to write as an aid in self-empowerment."
Imagine Dragons play tonight at Paramount Studios.
