In just a few short weeks, Maren Morris and her husband Ryan Hurd will welcome a baby boy into the world and their life as parents will begin. Until then, the Grammy-winning superstar is enjoying everything that goes along with pregnancy, including indulging on a few of her favorite foods.

In a recent interview with her record label, Morris revealed that her pregnancy has come along with a massive sweet tooth, and she’s enjoying every minute of it.

“One thing I can’t live without food-wise since being pregnant is Talenti gelato,” she shared. “That’s been a non-negotiable, before bed I have to have ice cream. It’s like a more amplified sweet tooth than I ever had.”

And it’s not just any flavor. Morris’ go-to is Salted Caramel Truffle.

“[Be] careful with it because you’ll want to buy like 12 pints,” she warned.

In a recent Twitter Q&A, the Texas native also shared that she’s craving Girl Scout Cookies, and lucky for her, the Girl Scouts are out in full-force around Nashville this time of year so the cookies are easily accessible.

With her baby boy on the way, Morris is keeping things pretty low-key at the moment, however, she has one show planned prior to his arrival: the Houston Rodeo on March 7.

“It’s a couple weeks before my due date,” Morris recently said (quote via Nash Country Daily). “I’m nervous, but I’ve talked to my doctor about it, and I’m going to fly in and out the same day, and just keep it super chill. My set is at like 6 p.m., and it’s not too long of a flight, so I could be back in Nashville by 9:00, hopefully. It’s a pretty crazy concept.”

Don’t worry, Morris plans to keep things pretty “chill” while she is on stage.

“I took the show offer before I was pregnant,” she explained. “It’s such an iconic thing to get to do, especially being from Texas. So when I found out that I was pregnant, I was like, ‘Oh my God, being nine months pregnant at the Houston Rodeo would be kinda badass.’ It’s only an hour show, and I’m going to be very stationary, I’m not going to be running around the stage, obviously.”
