Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner are celebrating one year of wedding bliss.

The American Idol alum took to Instagram to share a special message with one another on the first anniversary as husband and wife.

Barrett’s touching post included a black and white wedding photo and a heartfelt message to Cade.

“Happy 1 year Marriage Anniversary to my other half,” she wrote. “This year has been one to remember. Settling into our first home together, all the memories and now expanding our family. I will forever be grateful for how selfless and loving you are towards me. Never in a million years, would I have thought I’d end up with the most southern, charming, kind, and smart man, from the pines of E Texas. Thank you for leading our family the way that you do. You are my perfect fit, in every way. I am so blessed.”

The mother-to-be looked forward to the moment they meet their daughter, writing, “I feel our little gal moving around in my tummy as i’m typing this. Little does she know, she has the best daddy in the world!”

Cade echoed Barrett’s sentiments and also thanked God for his bride.

“Well my dear, by the undeserved grace of the Lord, we have made it a year,” he began. “I count it the highest privilege to lead our home, most especially because you are in it! Day after day and layer after layer, I’ve gotten to see over these 365 days, just how much I need you and how useless I’d be without you. You have become the closest friend I never knew I’d have. You forgive and forgive and forgive some more and when you see the worst in me, you love me, because Christ has loved and given Himself for us.

“You are an astounding woman and I want to thank you for choosing to marry me and bear my children. (I’m so excited for our little girl, you are going to be an amazing mother!) I am a blessed man indeed and you, my dear Bride, make my cup run over,” he continued. “Happy Anniversary.”

Gabby and Cade met on the set of American Idol and got engaged in March of 2019. They said “I do” just a few months later, tying the knot on October 5 in front of 100 guests in Texas. Foehner inspired several tracks on Barrett’s debut album, including her new single, “The Good Ones.”

In August, the couple revealed that they were expecting their first child, a baby girl. Gabby is due in late January.
