In a heartwarming interview with Leading Ladies Live, Gabby revealed that Baylah was more than excited to become a big sister. Looks like her wish just came true!

The birth of Gabby’s son comes after the pregnant singer and her husband took the stage at the American Idol Season 20 finale. There, she rocked her baby bump in an all black outfit while singing her newest hit “Pick Me Up.” Cade then sweetly joined her while harmonizing and playing guitar.

As for Gabby’s growing family, she revealed in an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with HollywoodLife that she knew she wanted to be a mother from a young age. “I definitely know that I want to be a younger mom per se. I don’t want to wait until I’m 30 to have kids,” she said.
