A publicist for Carrie confirmed to ABC News Radio on Wednesday night that the pregnant singer is expecting a boy with her husband, NHL player Mike Fisher.

Brad Paisley appeared to reveal the gender of the baby during his opening monologue with Carrie at the CMA Awards in Nashville earlier on Wednesday night. He asked her to tell him whether she's having a boy or a girl. She whispered into his ear; later, he suggested, "We can name him Garth," after Garth Brooks. Carrie responded, "What are you doing? Well, you kept that secret for a whole two minutes."

Carrie announced the pregnancy on Twitter September 1.

Martina McBride’s R&B-Inspired Album, “Everlasting,” Earned Her a Surprise CMA Female Vocalist Nod

Image Courtesy Vinyl RecordingsMartina McBride didn't expect to hear her name called as a nominee for Female Vocalist of the Year at this year's CMA Awards. She holds the records for most wins in that category with four trophies along with Reba and Miranda Lambert, but Martina's career took a left turn this year with her new album, Everlasting. The project features a throwback R&B vibe not geared towards country radio, but the CMA voters seemed to love Martina's new material anyway.

She says with a laugh, "I just thought that it would be an off-year.  So, when I got the news, I was so excited and appreciative and grateful and blessed. It's a neat thing. It's a great thing."

Martina is a presenter on the 48th Annual CMA Awards airing Wednesday night at 8 ET on ABC.
