Maren Morris Received a Sweet Sign From Her Unborn Son Right Before Her 2019 CMA Awards Performance
Maren Morris' Girl may have been one of the biggest stars of the show at the 2019 CMA Awards on Wednesday evening (Nov. 13), but her unborn baby boy made sure he was a part of the night, too! Backstage, the singer said that her baby made his presence known right before she headed out onto the stage.
"Seconds before the curtain lifted and I was gonna do my performance tonight, he started kicking," the singer told The Boot and other outlets. It wasn't the first time he'd grabbed Morris' attention during CMA week: On Monday (Nov. 11), she posted a sonogram photo on social media that featured what looked like her unborn son waving hello. The singer took that as a sign that he was wishing her well going into the awards show, and the pre-performance kick was just another indication that her baby is rooting for his mom's country music career.
"He's my good luck charm," Morris went on to say. The singer also revealed that she may have written a song about her rapidly approaching motherhood; in fact, she had a songwriting session scheduled with the Love Junkies -- Nashville mainstays Hillary Lindsay, Liz Rose and Lori McKenna -- on the day she found out she was pregnant.
"The Love Junkies were the first people I told I was pregnant, other than [my husband] Ryan [Hurd]," Morris continues with a laugh.
Morris and Hurd shared the news of her pregnancy (as well as the sex of their child) in late October of 2019. According to a tweet from Hurd, Morris is due in March.
