MARTINA MCBRIDE: ACM Couple Names Their Child After Martina

by Scott Hanson

Remember the couple who got married during the 2012 ACM Awards while Martina McBride and Pat Monahan performed “Marry Me”? They're expecting their first child next month!

Expectant mom Christina Tucci posted on Twitter, “We were married @ACMawards 2012: You sang ‘Marry Me.’ We are expecting a baby girl September 12th by C-section. We’re naming her Martina @martinambride.”

Martina replied, “@Christina_ACM @ACMAwards, are you serious?? That’s amazing! Congratulations!”

Expectant couple Christina and Frank Tucci met at a support group after losing their spouses within two months of each other in 2009. At the time, Christina was pregnant with her second child, while Frank had a three-year-old son. Baby Martina will be their first child together.
