Carrie Underwood Announces The Gender Of Her Second Baby At The CMAs

Ask any country music fan: Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are pretty much Country Music Awards show staples at this point. This year, the pair co-hosted the annual CMAs for the 11th consecutive time, and brought back a familiar bit from a few awards shows ago.

Fans will remember Paisley and Underwood - who is currently pregnant with her second child with husband Mike Fisher - from their hosting gig in 2014. During their now-famous opening monologue, Paisley asked Underwood - who was pregnant with her first baby at the time - to reveal whether she was having a boy or a girl. Cheekily, he assured her he wouldn't tell anyone.

When Underwood whispered the answer to his question in his ear, Paisley clearly couldn't contain himself and almost immediately let the cat out of the bag, exclaiming, "We could name him Garth!" in an obvious homage to country music legend Garth Brooks.

Much to the audience's delight, Underwood scolded him.

"What are you doing? What is wrong with you?" she exclaimed, to raucous laughter. Although it was clearly part of the act, that didn't stop #BradBlewIt from trending on Twitter that night.

Fast forward to 2018 and they seemed to be at it again - but things were a little different this time. This time, Underwood herself got to share the news.

"Seriously, Carrie, give me a baby hint," grinned Paisley, as the pair surely recalled their schtick from four years ago. He then proceeded to rattle off a list of names before Underwood interrupted him.

"Oh, my gosh, Willie, it's a Willie!" she joked, revealing that she was expecting another little boy.

"Carrie blew it!" exclaimed a faux-triumphant Paisley. "Trending worldwide! Way bigger than when I did it, and worse."


The latest bundle of joy for Underwood, 35 and Fisher, 38, is expected to arrive early next year. He will join big brother Isaiah Michael Fisher, who is four. Underwood's sweet baby announcement came via a video she shared to her Instagram this past August, letting her fans know about her new album and the reason why they may have to wait until 2019 to see her on tour.

Despite the happy news about adding "another little fish" to their pond, it has been a fairly bumpy road the last couple of years for the singer and her family. Last fall while on a walk with her dogs, Underwood fell and required over 40 stitches to her face. She also revealed that she suffered three miscarriages in the last two years.

Fortunately, things seem to have healed nicely - and 2019 is looking brighter than ever for the soon-to-be family of four.
