Carrie Underwood just let out a big secret on country’s biggest night.

Well, actually, her CMAs co-host Brad Paisley did the spilling, revealing the sex of her baby!

“We’re pregnant,” Paisley said onstage, begging, “Can you please just tell me what we’re having?”

Underwood — who is expecting her first child with husband Mike Fisher — whispered into Paisley’s ear, and he cried, “I’m so happy! I know something y’all don’t know.”
