Country music has experienced quite the baby boom this year! Over seven new members of the country music family were brought into this world just between the months of August and October alone.
Kane Brown, Brett Young, and Brantley Gilbert are a few country stars to recently expand their families. All of their wives were still expecting when they walked the red carpet at the CMT Music Awards in July!
But even though those artists have since welcomed their babies, there were still pregnant country stars and spouses at the 2019 CMA Awards this year. From Thomas Rhett‘s wife Lauren Akins, to Maren Morris, many attendees rocked a baby bump at the CMA Awards.
See how those lovely future mamas and others dressed up their bumps by browsing through the photos below.
Maren Morris and her husband, Ryan Hurd, are currently expecting their first child together. They announced the happy news in late October.
The couple is expecting a baby boy, and he is due in early 2020. So it only seems fitting that Maren wore an all-blue outfit when she walked the red carpet at the CMA Awards.
She pointed out the color choice when she shared a pair of red carpet photos on Instagram, captioning them with “Baby Blue.”
