Cade Foehner and Gabby Barrett with Baby Baylah May

New mom Gabby Barrett is celebrating her 21st birthday today and her husband, Cade Foehner, took to social media to share a sweet message with his bride.  

“Happy birthday my dear Wife,” the Texas native wrote. “I want to celebrate all the lovely attributes that Christ has given you but time would fail me. So just to name a few: your faith in our savior, patience in all things, beauty beyond comparison inside and out, a well of love with no bottom, silly goose humor, and amazing cookin’ skills that keep this ol’ man’s belly full!”

“So much about you inspires our precious Baylah and me,” he went on to say. “You make our world go round. We love you and are blessed and thankful to have a mama like you. Come give me a kiss.” 

Foehner’s post included an adorable snap of Barrett alongside their newborn daughter, Baylah May.

The American Idol alums announced Baylah May’s birth on social media one week after she arrived, in mid-January. 

“Gotten to spend a very sweet week with our newest addition.. meet our girl🥰,” Barrett wrote at the time. 

On Valentine’s Day, the pair shared the first photos of their daughter, along with loving messages to each other on Instagram.

Barrett and Foehner met on the set of American Idol in 2018. Their relationship continued to flourish after the show, and Foehner eventually popped the question in March of 2019. The pair tied the knot six months later.

Less than one year after that, Barrett and Foehner announced that they were expecting their first child and it sounds like Baylah May won’t be their last. 

“We’re ready to add on to our family and get some babies in there,” the “I Hope” singer recently shared. “I definitely want to have more than one in the future, for sure.”

Barrett recently scored two 2021 ACM Awards nominations, with nods for New Female Artist of the Year and Single of the Year (“I Hope”). 

Later this month, she’ll release her Live From The Goldmine EP, featuring seven live tracks.
