Gabby Barrett, 22, will soon welcome her second child with her husband Cade Foehner and recently took to Instagram to share a few pregnancy updates with fans.
Over the weekend, while on the road with Jason Aldean, the platinum-selling star answered several fan-submitted questions via Instagram. While some had questions about new music, which she’s currently working on, others were dying to know more about her pregnancy.
The “Pick Me Up” singer happily answered questions that came her way and revealed that she is due in early November.
While the pregnancy was “not really” planned, she said it was a welcome surprise and admitted that it’s come with a few challenges, especially while on tour.
“Okay. I love performing. It is getting difficult though. What people don’t really see is there is alooooooottt of sitting around all day before the show… Which makes everyone groggy,” Barrett revealed. ”I struggle with very low blood pressure almost everyday in this pregnancy which makes it hard to have energy to perform.”
After welcoming her first child, Baylah May, in January of 2021, the American Idol alum is no stranger to a difficult pregnancy.
“With Baylah, I got a very bad case of PUPPS rash that covered my entire body, until after I delivered & I got postpartum preeclampsia,” she wrote. “I had to get on blood pressure medication when I was 20… Thankful God provides doctors for help.”
With the birth of their son on the horizon, Barrett is busy preparing for his arrival and is still having trouble deciding on a name.
“We are a bit stuck. We don’t have an official full name like we did with Baylah right away. We will have to wait and see him.”
She previously revealed to K99.1 FM’s Nancy Wilson that she and her husband, Cade Foehner, have been struggling to name their second child, sharing that “this one’s [been] a bit harder.”
“For some reason, boy names have been much harder for me to come up with than girl names,” Barrett confessed. ”I have, like, a whole list of girl names, and then boy names, it’s very short and we’re trying to figure out if we want to continue, like, a family name or not,” she added.
Earlier this year on Mother’s Day (May 8), Barrett and her husband, Foehner, revealed that they were expecting their second child, a baby boy.
“My son. Another LIFE we get to love and cherish. Happy Mother’s Day,” Barrett wrote, alongside an ultrasound video of her unborn son on Instagram.
Foehner, also shared an ultrasound video to his Instagram page, expressing his gratitude for their new addition.
“Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing, strong, and fruitful Bride! @gabbybarrett_” he said. ”She is currently carrying another precious life made in the image of God. A son to bear our name into the next generation. Our children will rise up and call her blessed, this husband also praises her. Proverbs 31:28 ‘Praise God from whom all blessings flow!,’” he added.
Barrett is currently in the midst of serving as direct support on Jason Aldean’s Rock N’ Roll Cowboy Tour.
