Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner revealed their favorite snacks, recalled their first kiss and much more on Friday (May 22) when they took over the Country Now Instagram to answer fan-submitted questions during QuaranTEN Questions: Couples Edition.

The couple, who met in 2018 when they both appeared on season 16 of American Idol, also revealed their nicknames for each other.

“A nickname I call him a lot is Bebe, I don’t know why I call him Bebe,” Barrett shared.

“I call her Mama, but it’s not cause she’s pregnant but because that’s just what southern people call their wives, lil Mama,” Foehner added.

They also opened up about Barrett’s forthcoming debut album, Goldmine, as Foehner revealed his favorite track on the record.

“My favorite is ‘Got Me,’ the one with Shane & Shane on it,” Foehner said. “We love that song. It represents so much about our lives and our belief in the Lord, our savior Jesus Christ.”

“He also wrote on it which is pretty cool, so check it out,” Barrett went on to say.
