It looks like Brad Paisley can’t keep a secret.

Alongside pregnant CMA Awards co-host Carrie Underwood, Paisley “slipped” the gender to the audience.

“Hey, we could name  him Garth!” he told Underwood after talking about Garth Brooks’s comeback.

“What are you doing? What is wrong with you?” said a seemingly annoyed Underwood, who had just whispered the gender to Paisley. “Well, you kept that a secret for a whole two minutes.”

While we’re pretty sure the skit was planned, we’re still pretty thrilled to know we can expect a boy in early spring. Even though a girl would totally benefit from mom’s sense of style: Underwood pulled off 11 (!) different bump-flattering outfits Wednesday night. We were blown away  by her first outfit, a neutral Lorena Sarbu dress, complete with elaborate beadwork and an asymmetrical hem, worn on the Nashville red carpet.

“I definitely have outfit ADD,” she told Late Night host Seth Meyers on Monday.

Admittedly, we are a little concerned with Paisley’s name suggestion. Garth? Here are a few other country music-inspired boy names for Underwood and husband Mike Fisher.

  • Blake
  • Jake
  • Brett
  • Hunter
  • Jason
  • Chase

Whatever Underwood chooses, we’re sure it won’t be somethin’ bad.
