The singer announced on Instagram in mid-October that she was pregnant with a girl. She shared a gorgeous maternity photo in which she was dressed in a white bandeau top and floor-length tulle skirt, with a bunch of pink balloons trailing behind her.

“She’s already become the light of my life,” she captioned the snapshot. “Mommy & Daddy can’t wait to meet you baby girl! 🎀🌸🌷 #IssaGurl.”

Luckett-Walker originally announced she was going to be a mom for the first time in a sweet video featuring Madison. The little girl narrated the big reveal, singing and giggling to, “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby!” as photos of her father and stepmother flashed over the screen.

“BIG NEWS from Madison,” the then-mom-to-be captioned the video.
