Martina McBride has a new namesake.

The couple she serenaded at the Academy of Country Music Awards in a very public wedding ceremony in April 2012 is pregnant, and plan to name their baby after her.

“We’re expecting a baby girl!” Christina Davidson Tweeted. “We’re naming her Martina.”

McBride congratulated the couple via Twitter and said she found the news amazing!

McBride has said she was honored to participate in the couple’s celebration, singing the tune “Marry Me” with Train’s Pat Monahan in front of a crowd of 12,000.

Davidson and Frank Tucci first met at a grief support group, where both were mourning the tragic loss of their spouses, who died within two months of one another in 2009.

The couple report via Twitter that the baby is due Sept. 12 and will be delivered via cesarean section.
