Gabby Barrett has a very special reason to celebrate Mother’s Day this year: she’s about to become a mom for the second time!
The “I Hope” singer, who is 22, said on Sunday that she and her husband, fellow American Idol alum Cade Foehner, who she married in 2019, are expecting their second child.
Barrett shared the big news on Instagram by posting a video of her ultrasound with inspiring music from an orchestra. She also said in the caption that she and Foehner are expecting a boy.
Barrett wrote as a caption for the video, “My son 💙.” “We get to love and treasure yet another life. Good Mother’s Day!”
Foehner also posted the same video clip to his own account to honor his wife on her special day.
“Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing, strong, and productive Bride!” Foehner, 25, wrote, tagging Barrett.
In January 2021, they had their first child, a daughter named Baylah Mae. She is now 15 months old.
Barrett had told PEOPLE that Foehner was “extra thoughtful” for helping her out while she was pregnant with Baylah.
“He’s just been very nice. Every night, he rubs my feet, “she told me. “And all those crazy things can happen sometimes during pregnancy because of the hormones. He has just been very calm and understanding about it.”
Barrett also said that the time the country couple spent away from the stage getting ready for their child brought them closer together.
“This has brought us even closer together,” she said.
About Gabby Barrett
Fans of the talent show American Idol can’t talk about the show without mentioning country music star Gabby Barrett. Even though they didn’t win, many of the singers who have been on the show have done well.
Gabby is one of the most famous people in the world who got their start on American Idol. She is an American country-pop singer who became very popular when she owned the Crystal Bowersox in 2014. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review said at the time that she was “the voice you must hear.”
Gabby, who competed in the 16th season, was the favorite of both the judges and the fans to win American Idol, but she ended up as the third finalist. Gabby didn’t let that stop her from following her dream, though.
Gabby Barrett Wins Big at Billboard Music Awards
Gabby is signed to Warner Music Nashville right now, and her estimated net worth is around $300,000. She has about 2 million people who follow her on social media sites.
Now, the talented star has won two Billboard Music Awards. The country singer was happy to get her first award of the night for Top Country Female Artist. She also won the award for Top Country Song for her song “I Hope,” which was a masterpiece. Gabby also won Top Collaboration, which was chosen by the fans, for her song “I Hope,” which features Charlie Puth.
Gabby even talked about her new baby daughter, Baylah May, during the ceremony.
Gabby’s BBMA win is her first, and she admitted that she’s new to this. She thanked her husband again for how well he knew how to fluff the train of her beautiful gold dress while she was accepting her awards.
The singer was nominated for nine BBMAs. Just before the awards, she told Access Hollywood that she was hoping to win, saying, “I’ve never been to the Billboard Music Awards… I’ve never been to an awards show where all kinds of music are played. I’ve been to country shows, though.” She then said, “So it will be cool to see the faces of some of the people I listened to when I was growing up… And then, of course, I hope to maybe win one of the nominations.”
As of right now, her next tour won’t start until June 2021, and she just played at the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards. Gabby’s music career is a great example of how hard work and talent can pay off.
