Carrie’s Baby Boy: Brad Knew!

| January 4, 2015

Brad Carrie CMAOne of the great moments during this year’s CMA Awards was when Brad Paisley “slipped” and let the world know that Carrie Underwood was having a boy.  It seemed like an accident, but it was actually planned in advance.  Brad shared the story with Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton: “When we started brain-storming about the awards show, the show’s producer asked Carrie if she knew what she was having.  She said she was about to find out.  He asked, are you going to tell people? She said, yeah eventually we’ll tell people.  Somehow it came up that we could reveal it on the show, and she said OK.  I told her not to tell anybody until that night.  That way it won’t get out.  She asked me, ‘When do you want to know?’  And I said, ‘Right before we walk out.’

“So we were standing in our places, they were about to introduce us, and she whispered to me, ‘It’s a boy.”  And I said to her, ‘I know.’  I could tell the way she acted around my boys.  There was no doubt in my mind.   We had two names, ‘We could name him Garth’ if it’s a boy, or ‘We could name her Garthette’ if it’s a girl.  But about a week out, I could tell we weren’t going to need the girl name.   Then the funny part was people didn’t know if we were serious!  They were texting her publicist if it was true, and they didn’t know either!  It was a great way to do it.  I love anything you can do with a joke attached.”
