Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner

And baby makes three for Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner!

Less than one year after saying “I Do,” Barrett and Foehner are expecting their first child, a daughter. The couple confirmed the news exclusively to People, telling the publication they are “very excited” to expand their family.

“The Lord has blessed us with a little one, and we’re really excited to finally be able to share the news with everybody and just have a big old family celebration about it,” the “I Hope” singer shared.

The couple first learned the news in May and will welcome their daughter early next year.

“We were in Texas visiting Cade’s side of his family,” she said of the moment she found out she was pregnant. “And it’s funny, because I did not think that I was. Around lunchtime, I remember taking the test and my eyes nearly crossed! I was like, ‘Wait, is that two lines?’ I came running out to Cade and was just like, ‘Oh my gosh, I think I am.’ That’s all that I said, and he knew what that meant. I started crying, and it was very sweet.”

The news comes just days after Foehner shared an adorable selfie of the couple and said that he hopes to one day have a “boatload of babies” with Barrett. The couple told People that they “talked and prayed” about having children” since getting married.

Being pregnant during a pandemic, however, does have its challenges.

“I have to go to some appointments, unfortunately, without my husband, which is really sad,” Barrett explained. “But I mean, if that’s what keeps the baby safe, then that’s what we’re going to do. We’ve just been trying to really work with it, because that’s all we can do at this point.”

After beginning their relationship during American Idol, Barrett and Foehner 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.
