'It's a Willie!': Pregnant Carrie Underwood reveals the gender of her second baby at the 2018 CMA Awards
While co-hosting the 2018 CMA Awards show with Brad Paisley, the singer revealed to everyone that she was having a boy during an opening monologue.
Carrie Underwood is having a baby boy! The 'Before He Cheats' hitmaker revealed the gender of her baby at the CMA Awards on Wednesday when she was co-hosting the show with musician Brad Paisley.
Underwood began her opening monologue by telling the world she's having a boy. The last time Carrie was pregnant with her first child, her co-host Paisley accidentally revealed the gender of the baby while the duo was hosting the show. The incident led to the hilarious hashtag #BradBlewIt. This time around, Carrie wanted to take matters into her own hands and be the first to tell everyone whether she was having a boy or a girl.
CNN reports that during the show, Brad said jokingly, "Remember last time when I accidentally revealed the gender of your baby?" to which Carrie replied, "I mean, who could ever forget #Bradblewit?" Paisley continued with a grin, "Tonight we're going to reveal something even more exciting. Who the father is ... Mike [Fisher] we're all rooting for you buddy. What's your gut feeling? Seriously, Carrie give me a little baby hint. Johnny or June? Keith or Nicole? Garth or Trisha? Tim or Faith? George or Tammy? Waylon or Willie?"
After much prodding, Carrie finally gave in and told everyone she was having a boy. "Oh my gosh, Willie! It's a Willie!" she responded to Brad's friendly teasing.
Carrie and her husband Mike Fisher took to Instagram in August to announce that they were expecting another child. In her announcement, she said, "Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond." She continued, "This has just been a dream come true with album and baby news and all that stuff. We're just so excited and glad you guys can share this with us and be a part of it. Love you guys!"
Carrie's announcement in August came right after fans began to speculate why the singer was not going to go on tour to promote her current album "Cry Pretty." Fisher and Underwood have been married for eight years and have three-year-old son Isaiah Michael Fisher together. With her sixth album 'Cry Pretty' Carrie has broken a new record. She has become the only woman in history to hit the top of the Billboard 200 charts with a total of four albums. In her career, the singer has sold more than 65 million records worldwide.
