The Why Baby Why singer wrote alongside her Instagram reveal: ‘God sent me an angel in these dark times and I am beyond grateful and terrified and all of the things.’
She also said at the time, ‘I’m so excited to announce that I’m having a baby! My life completely changed in an instant. Literally nothing else matters,
‘I’m so excited and terrified all at the same time. I have no idea what I am doing but am so thankful that God chose me to be this baby’s mom’
Just a month later she performed with Keith Urban at the ACM Awards showing off her baby bump in a flowing white gown.
When Mickey was pregnant she discussed racism and how she worried for her child’s future.

Talking to People, she said: ‘I’ve seen racial injustice happen to my husband. I’ve had a ‘Karen’ falsely make claims against him and say some of the most heinous things, like the N-word. I’m growing this Black child in my belly that is going to have to face this. I pray for him.’
She added, ‘I just want this baby to just have its own life and have its own choices, and I will accept this baby for who or whatever it chooses to be. I just want to support it in every way that I can.’
Mickey also said that finding out she was pregnant was a shock and ‘terrifying’.
‘I was just a complete deer in the headlights and completely shocked and terrified and scared. In my mind, as a woman in the music industry, you think, “Oh, I can’t be pregnant and have a career. I can’t be a mom and have a career.” I thought those things. I had to just completely do some deprogramming in my mind and realize that we all deserve happiness and we all deserve a family.’
