Martina McBride Is Getting a Namesake
Martina McBride and Train frontman Pat Monahan gave two newlyweds the gift of a lifetime, performing ‘Marry Me’ during their onstage wedding at the 2012 ACM Awards. Now, that lucky couple — Frank Tucci and Christina Davidson — are giving a huge gift to McBride: a namesake.
The bride and groom are expecting a baby girl, and they’re naming her after the songstress, who was such a big part of their wedding day.
Tucci took the news to Twitter, writing, “We were married @ACMawards 2012: you sang Marry Me. We’re expecting a baby girl Sept 12 by C-sec. We’re naming her Martina @martinamcbride.”
Of course, the ‘Concrete Angel’ hitmaker shared her congratulations, adding that the surprising news was “amazing.” It really is a fairytale with a happy ending for the couple, and certainly deserved, as they met at a support group after both of their former spouses tragically passed away within two months of each other.
Their very public ACM Awards wedding was actually McBride’s idea. At first, the country singer admitted she thought it was a crazy idea, but one that was “worth throwing out there.” It certainly was, as the happy couple now has an extremely memorable wedding — a memory so sweet that they’ll remember it always through their daughter’s name.
