Gabby Barrett, country music superstar and fan-favorite “American Idol” alum, is pregnant with her second term with husband Cade Foehner.
Barrett announced the news on Instagram on May 8, 2022, which happened to be on Mother’s Day.
“My son,” she wrote alongside video of a sonogram. “Another LIFE to love and appreciate. Happy Mother’s Day!”
Barrett’s husband Foehner also made the announcement while wishing his wife a Happy Mother’s Day.
“Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing, strong and prolific bride! @gabbybarrett_,” he wrote. “She is currently carrying another precious life made in the image of God. A son who carries our name into the next generation. Our children will stand up and call them blessed, this man also praises them. Proverbs 31:28. ‘Praise be to God, from whom all blessings flow!’”
The couple have one daughter together, 1-year-old Baylah May, who was born in January 2021.
Now that it’s been over a year since their first child was welcomed, the couple seem excited to welcome their second. In 2021, the couple told ET they didn’t plan on expanding their family right away, though they would welcome more children.
“Definitely not soon – unless the Lord just decides he wants to give that, then I’m totally fine with that – but we’ll probably wait a bit and just enjoy it [Baylah] and enjoying getting back on the road and stuff,” Barrett shared. “But we will definitely add [to our family] for sure.”
At the time, she also praised her daughter.
“She’s so sweet. She’s such a good baby,” she said at the time. “[We’re] extremely blessed. Thank you God. She’s very happy, very calm, it’s very good to travel with her, all those things. she is a darling She just started eating groceries. She likes sweet potatoes and green beans.”
The couple took their daughter on tour in late 2021 and early 2022.
Last week, Barrett released a music video for her song “Pick Me Up,” which featured a love story that dates back to 1962. The video featured Barrett and her husband.
The couple live their life together through thick and thin in the video, including bills marked “overdue” as the pair dance around the living room.
Fans loved the music video.
“She was a breath of fresh air for the country!” one person wrote in the YouTube comments. “Didn’t take long to become a fan!”
Another wrote: “Such a great song and such a beautiful voice. Nice that you both can be part of the video. keep it up gabby.”
“I can’t stop looking at this! I absolutely love it!! Keep it up Gaby! This is awesome!” reads another comment.
Barrett was one of many “American Idol” alumni to return for the show’s 20th season. While many performed during the “Great Idol Reunion,” which aired May 2, 2022, Barrett decided to mentor the contestants during a crucial portion of the show, offering them advice on their stage presence and song choices.
