Turns out Carrie Underwood did use last week's CMA Awards to publicly reveal the gender of her baby. Carrie's husband, Mike Fisher, tells Nashville's Tennessean that he and the singer are in fact having a boy. 

Carrie and her CMA Awards co-host Brad Paisley sparked speculation about the baby with one of their bits during the ceremony. Just moments after Brad supposedly convinced Carrie to whisper to him the baby's gender, he blurted out that she and Mike could name their child "Garth," after Garth Brooks -- implying a boy was on the way. 

In addition to confirming the news, Mike said making the announcement in a humorous way on the CMAs "was the plan all along." The baby, which will be Carrie and Mike's first child, is due in the spring. 

Congratulations to Carrie and Mike!
