As for the “Southern Hallelujah” singer, 24, he wrote, “I have the most amazing wife in the world. I can’t possibly come up with strong enough words to honor her as she has honored me in giving me a baby girl! Praise the Lord our God! ‘Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.'”

The “I Hope” singer debuted her baby bump while performing at the ACM Awards the following month and continued to document her progress via Instagram.

She and Foehner met and fell in love on season 16 of the ABC show. In October 2019, they tied the knot in Texas, seven months after their engagement.

While celebrating their first anniversary in October, Barrett gushed about her “other half” while sharing throwback photos on social media. “I will forever be grateful for how selfless and loving you are towards me,” she wrote. “Never in a million years, would I have thought I’d end up with the most southern, charming, kind, and smart man, from the pines of E Texas. Thank you for leading our family the way that you do. You are my perfect fit, in every way. I am so blessed.”
