CR: Tammie Arroyo/

It was a big night for Carrie Underwood at the 52nd annual CMA Awards! First, she revealed the gender of her baby on the way and later, she took home the win for Female Vocalist of the Year, marking her fifth time to win the title.

Carrie and her sweet baby bump took the stage to accept the award as tears began to fall. “Thank you God,” she started. “I have been blessed with so much in my life. Still, every day, trying to figure out what I’ve done to deserve it.”

She later performed “Love Wins” alongside a full choir.

Carrie’s sixth studio album, Cry Pretty, took the country music community by storm this year— primarily the title track, “Cry Pretty,” which she later revealed was written after enduring three miscarriages in the span of two years.

“I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” she said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning. “We got pregnant early 2017, and didn’t work out.”

Carrie revealed that she and her husband, Mike Fisher, were expecting baby no. 2 in early August, and her Cry Pretty album was released in September of 2018.
