Pop singer Meghan Trainor is now a mother of two!

Trainor announced the birth of her second child on Instagram on July 4. The Mother singer shared that on July 1—the anniversary of her and her husband, Daryl Sabara’s, first date—the couple welcomed Barry Bruce Trainor into the world. Barry is a classic, gender-neutral name of Irish origin that has decreased in popularity over the past few years. An anglicized version of Báire, it typically means “fair-haired.”

The Dear Future Mama author shared more details about her delivery in the post. “He was a big boy at 8lbs 7oz…and sideways (transverse), but we had an amazing, successful c-section, and I finally got my skin to skin time,” she wrote. “Thank you to all of the incredible doctors and nurses who took such great care of us!”

Friends, fans and fellow celebrities cheered on Trainor and congratulated her on her new addition in the comments. “Congratulations sis! So happy for you,” wrote Paris Hilton, a new mom herself. “Go Mama!! And welcome to the party, Barry!! What a lucky dude,” added Mandy Moore, who welcomed her second last winter.

Meghan Trainor Is Having a Boy!

Trainor and Sabara first revealed the sex of baby number two on April 25 during an episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show. The couple enlisted the help of their 2-year-old son Riley to share the news. As the adorable toddler turned around and proclaimed, “It’s a boy!” on video, host Kelly Clarkson gushed, “I love that Riley did it!”

Trainor has previously teased the announcement with a heartwarming video of her and Sabara sharing the news with friends and loved ones at home. While the pop star didn’t share her baby’s sex during the video, fans speculated in the comments that the duo would be welcoming a baby boy based on the crowd’s reactions.

Meghan Trainor’s New Mother Song Goes Viral

At 22 weeks pregnant, Meghan Trainor didn’t let her pregnancy keep her from continuing to conquer the music world. Trainor’s preview of her new song Mother dropped March 9, racking up over 16 million views in just 24 hours—making it the latest Spring anthem for moms everywhere!

In an adorable TikTok featuring Sabara and Riley, the pop star danced along to the incredibly catchy tune sampled from Mr. Sandman, singing, “I am your mother. You listen to me. Stop all that mansplaining, no one’s listening. Tell me who gave you permission to speak. I am your mother listen to me.” Above the video, Trainor humorously added the caption, “Trying to tell my unborn kid to stop waking me up with kicks all night.”

You can see Trainor’s full Mother song and music video on YouTube.

Meghan Trainor Announces She’s Expecting

The Made You Look singer first revealed that she was having another baby on January 30 on a morning segment of TODAY with a sonogram photo pasted on the inside of her upcoming book, Dear Future Mama. “We’re pregnant!” Trainor excitedly screamed as host Kathy Hoda opened the book. “We did it!”

Trainor teased her pregnancy announcement with a video posted to Instagram featuring her friends and family reacting to “the secret I’ve been keeping for the past few months.” From screams to tears, Trainor’s support group looked thrilled with the news.

Alongside her announcement, Trainor, who has been open about her prenatal mental health struggles during her first pregnancy, shared more about her new book Dear Future Mamma.

“When I was pregnant, I felt very alone,” Trainor shared of her first pregnancy. “It was also Covid times so I didn’t have any friends that were pregnant with me, and I just remember being like, I don’t want anyone else to feel like that. So now I can be your future bestie and I can help you and tell you all my TMI details of my pregnancy and how crazy it was.”

Our best to the new parents of two!
