Country singer Mindy McCready is in Nashville and says she will probably not be able to bring her 5-year-old son back to Florida to fulfill a judge's order - because she is nearly 7 months pregnant with twins.

Speaking exclusively to The Associated Press, McCready said Wednesday that she and her mother have had a long custody battle over Zander. Her mother was awarded guardianship of the boy in 2007.

Florida Department of Children and Families said a missing person report was filed with police Tuesday night after McCready took Zander from her father's home.

On Tuesday, DCF discovered that McCready and the boy were not at her father's home and a judge ruled she must return the boy voluntarily by 5 p.m. Thursday or risk an arrest warrant.
