Musical couple Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner are celebrating the birth of their first child together after welcoming a baby girl into the world on Monday, January 18.
The new parents announced the adorable arrival of their daughter, Baylah May. The news of her arrival comes one week after her birth. “Gotten to spend a very sweet week with our newest addition.. meet our girl,” wrote the doting new mom with a photo of her baby girl.
“The Lord Jesus has given me so much that I scarce can believe it. Not only to be saved from sin because of His Gospel, but to also be given a Wife, who is my best friend in the whole wide world, bear me a child,” wrote Foehner on his own Instagram post. “I am a blessed man beyond my understanding.”
Barrett and Foehner announced to People they were expecting the little one back in August 2020, revealing they found out about the big surprise in May. They were surrounded by Foehner’s family in Texas when they discovered the news, noting that Barrett was over the moon when the pregnancy test came back positive.
“We were in Texas visiting Cade’s side of his family. 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,” she shared with the outlet.
The two met during their time on American Idol in 2018 and began dating shortly after. They dated for more than a year before tying the knot in October of 2019.
Fans can expect to see Barrett out on the road touring in 2021, if live music is approved to presume if COVID-19 guidelines permit.
