Jon Pardi and his wife, Summer (Duncan) Pardi, attended the 56th Annual CMA Awards at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (Nov. 9) evening. And, although the country music singer was being celebrated with a nomination heading into Country Music’s Biggest Night, it was his bride who was glowing on the red carpet.
The mom-to-be stunned onlookers in a silver and white dress as she posed for pictures while showing off her adorable baby bump.
On the red carpet, Pardi, who sported a black suit and cowboy hat, pointed out his bride as his date for the evening. He also discussed how everything has been coming along since announcing the married couple was growing their family by one.
“We’re having our first baby girl, and Summer’s right over there,” Pardi proudly told Entertainment Tonight’s Rachel Smith, adding, “We’re good. Summer, she’s perfectly fine. She’s not sick. She’s super healthy, baby’s healthy. She’s working out, so we’re just gonna get a little nursery soon and then stay up all night.”
The “Last Night Lonely” singer didn’t give up too much information about how the pair are preparing for the next chapter in their life, but he did share one exciting, important detail about their baby on the way.
“We have a name,” the soon-to-be-father said. “It’s done.”
Folks, will however, have to wait to find out the name Pardi and his wife picked for their baby girl as they have decided to remain tight-lipped for now at least.
Pardi and Summer first revealed they were expecting a child in an exclusive interview with People.
“I’m ready to start a new adventure with my wonderful wife, Summer, and our new little one — Pardi of three!” Pardi told the outlet in September of the couple’s first-ever child.
Following their baby announcement, Pardi shared a couple of pictures from their couple’s maternity photoshoot with People. The images, posted to Instagram, feature the two lovebirds caressing Summer’s pregnant belly.
“Wellllll, it happened. No plans, no timing, just a gift from god. I’m ready for it!” Pardi captioned the set of photos.
Summer also shared the same stunning pictures to her Instagram page, writing, “Pardi, party of 3 🥰.”
“You know what, I’m excited, I’m not really nervous. I’m not ready for high school, but that’s a long ways away,” Pardi told Fox News Digital ahead of the 2022 CMA Awards, “I’m excited. I’m not getting any younger, it’s time to have kids.”
Pardi and his wife have spoken candidly about their wishes to grow their family, having previously opened up about the challenges they faced while trying to conceive after tying the knot in late 2020.
“It was definitely an interesting two years of ups and downs — the constant letdown month after month can really be hard on a couple,” Summer told People. “After years of no luck and meeting with doctors who just didn’t feel like the right fit, we decided to take a break, leave it in God’s hands and just enjoy each other and this crazy, fun life we live together…and then surprise, we’re pregnant!”
“I think stress has a huge part in it. You hear so many stories like ours of ‘the moment you stop trying, it’ll happen,’ but when you’re in that situation it’s really, really hard to not try or not think about it,” she added. “It’s just one of those crazy things in life that doesn’t make sense, and there’s no right or wrong answer. I feel for all of the couples out there who have been through this and especially those who are still in the thick of it.”
At the 2022 CMA Awards, Pardi was in the running for Musical Event of the Year for his track “Longneck Way To Go” with Midland. He recieved a nomination in the category alongside Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood’s “If I Didn’t Love You,” “Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson’s “Never Say Never,” Carly Pearce and Ashley McBride’s “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” and Dierks Bentley, Breland and HARDY’s “Beers On Me.” Pearce and McBride were awarded the trophy for “Never Wanted To Be That Girl.”
During the three-hour ceremony, Pardi performed alongside Underwood, Wilson, and Bentley in a special tribute to Alan Jackson, who received the prestigious honor of the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award.
Pardi and Summer’s baby girl is due in early 2023.
