The American Idol winner revealed earlier this month that her first child would be a son, and now she's explained exactly how she learned the happy news…
Carrie told a US radio station that she and Mike hadn't wanted to learn the baby's sex during a hospital checkup, instead they'd wanted to experience the news in a comfortable and familiar setting.
"The doctor's office is kind of a sterile place," she told ABC News Radio
"We got to see all the pictures and everything, and it was really cool to see that, but whenever she'd get near, near those parts we would look away."
Carrie, 31, said that she and Mike asked the doctor to write down their baby's gender on a piece of paper, which they then took to their favourite restaurant.
Although she says both she and Mike suspected a boy…
"It was just the two of us in a nicer setting [than the doctor's office] but we both knew. So, that was just confirming our suspicions. We didn't really speak of it before then because we were both just like, 'Whatever, it's all good.' But we knew it was a boy."
Carrie and Mike announced their first pregnancy in September then, the following month, Carrie's co-host at the Country Music Association Awards, Brad Paisley, let slip on stage it was a boy.
Well, we say let slip, we're pretty sure Carrie knew full well what he was going to do!
