‘What A Precious Gift From Our Lord!’: Gabby Barrett Celebrates Birth Of Son Augustine

By Movieguide® Contributor

Country star Gabby Barrett and her husband Cade Foehner are now parents of two!

The couple welcomed their son, Augustine Boone Foehner, on October 27. 

“Soaking up the newborn days with baby brother. What a precious gift from our Lord!,” Barrett captioned a photo of the baby. 

They also share a daughter, Baylah May, 21 months. Barrett and Foehner met while competing on the sixteenth season of AMERICAN IDOL. They got married in 2019. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Barrett’s pregnancy announcement:

Gabby Barrett is getting ready to have her second child, and she’s revealed that one family member might be even more excited than she is about the new baby.

In a recent interview, the singer was asked if her 1 year-old daughter Baylah May is excited about a new sibling. 

“Absolutely,” Barrett responded. “She’s very sweet about her babies and baby dolls already. She puts them to sleep all the time, she’ll hold them like she’s putting them to sleep. It is the sweetest thing. Give them their pacifier, and she does give my belly kisses and stuff. I don’t think she understands there’s a baby in the belly, but she’s very sweet about it.” 

Barrett shared the news of her pregnancy on Instagram, posting a video of an ultrasound. 

“​​My son,’ she wrote. “Another LIFE we get to love and cherish. Happy Mothers Day!”

Movieguide® also reported on how important being a mother is to Barrett:

AMERICAN IDOL alumna Gabby Barrett’s career took off after her audition in 2017. Now, the country music star’s focus is on her 3-month-old daughter, Baylah May.

“Oh my gosh, it’s awesome,” Barrett, 20, told People. “It’s a whole new world, honestly. It’s so true all the cliché sayings — when you have kids, everything changes in your world; just flips upside down.

“Now everything’s kind of transformed from me doing it for myself, to me doing it for her now, and I would much rather have it that way,” Barrett added. “She’s just my whole world now. She’s the sweetest, so it’s really cool having her with me.”

Barrett shares Baylah with her husband, Cade Foehner. The couple met on AMERICAN IDOL in 2018 and were married in Oct. 2019. Baylah was born in early 2021.

“Got to spend a very sweet week with our newest addition.. meet our girl,” announced on Instagram.

Barrett recently appeared on the ACM Awards, performing her hit, “The Good Ones.” It was Barrett’s first public appearance since welcoming her daughter.

“I’m super excited! I’ve always loved dressing up and the idea of prettiness and makeup and hair and all the fun stuff since I was younger,” she confessed. “I’ve had the fair share of sweatpants and big ‘ole t-shirts, especially when I was pregnant and after and all of that, so I am excited to be dressed up and have my hair done and makeup done.”

Not only did Barrett perform at the ACM Awards, but she also won the New Female Artist of the Year Award.
