At Wednesday night’s CMA Awards, The Bold Type actress, Katie Stevens arrived on the Red Carpet revealing a big surprise. A baby bump!
Katie, who competed as a teen on American Idol season 9 in 2010, is expecting her first baby with her husband Paul Giovanni. The songwriter, producer, and Boys Like Girls guitarist was nominated for Single of the Year for “Buy Dirt” by Jordan Davis and Luke Bryan.
Katie and Paul Giovanni were married in 2019
The singer wore a Pamella Roland gown from the Fall 2022 collection as she walked the carpet with her husband. According to People magazine, the couple married back in 2019, which came after nearly six years together.
“Our first date was five-and-a-half years ago,” Katie told People at the time. “After dating for a couple months, I knew [he was going to be] my husband,” she said. “From the second that I met him up until now, he’s made me feel special and more than enough every single day.”
“Our first dance was to ‘I Will Always Be Yours’ by Ben Rector,” Katie shared about the couple’s wedding dance. “When we went out for our first dance, Paul surprised me with a video from Ben on the TV screen,” she said. “Paul asked him if he could make a video singing our first dance song, and he did! It was truly so special.”
Katie landed on American Idol at age 16
Katie began performing and singing at age 3. She eventually landed on the American Idol stage. In August 2009, she auditioned for Idol in Boston, Massachusetts, and sang “At Last” where all four judges (including guest judge Victoria Beckham) advanced her to Hollywood. At the Boston audition, judge Kara DioGuardi called her one of the most talented 16-year-olds she had ever seen. She left the competition in 9th place. Katie previously starred as Karma in the MTV comedy series Faking It, which aired for three seasons. Her Freeform series, The Bold Type, ended after five seasons in 2021.
