The American Idol alum has hosted the CMAs alongside Brad Paisley, for the last 11 years. Back in 2014, Paisley accidentally revealed pregnant Underwood was having a baby boy during their intro.

“Hey, you remember last time when I accidentally revealed the gender of your baby?” Paisley said on Wednesday. “Tonight, we’re going to reveal something even more exciting. Who the father is. … Mike, we’re all rooting for you, buddy. What’s your gut feeling, here, Carrie?”

“If there’s anything that we’ve made our mantra, it’s that this year should be fun,” Paisley told the outlet. “We should be having a good time up there with our monologue. This is an escape and that’s what people need right now. You’re not up there to do anything too biting. This is about having a good time and setting a light tone.”

Underwood added: “We take pride in what we do, for sure. I think I speak for both of us. We just want to represent country music well.”

“Speak for yourself,” the “Today” singer jokingly interjected before the Underwood assured the outlet the pair “take our role seriously.”
