Gabby Barrett and her husband Cade Foehner are expecting to welcome their first child, a daughter, “any day now.” And Barrett says that after she welcomes her new bundle of joy, she will “off the map for a bit.”
The “I Hope” singer told PEOPLE that she will be taking a brief “break from music” to give her baby girl her undivided attention as she feels “it’s really important to focus on her.”
However, Barrett continued to explain that “if the pandemic ends,” fan can “look forward to” her “starting up in spring/summer for some cool stuff.”
During the interview she also gushed over how grateful she is for her fans support of her debut single “I Hope” and album, Goldmine.
The singer’s first two singles have both been certified by the RIAA with “I Hope” going 3x Platinum and “The Good Ones” going Gold. The news comes as the RIAA presented its Class of 2020, which included 53 artists whose singles or album have gone Gold or Platinum over the last year for the first time ever which featured both of the aforementioned tracks.
“I’m still blown away,” the singer told the outlet. “I’m so thankful for having so much time off this year to really let it soak in. Being presented with my plaque for ‘I Hope’ was really an indescribable feeling.”
Barrett added, “I just remember being young and always seeing plaques of artists that I really looked up to on the walls of different places, hoping I could have at least one of those someday, I’m dreaming with my eyes open as they’re hanging up on my wall. Hopefully, I’ll be able to collect some more in the future.”
The superstar released her debut album, Goldmine, in June 2020.
