The secret to Gabby Barrett’s post-baby body bounceback isn’t much of a secret

Gabby Barrett gave birth to her first child, daughter Baylah, in January, and she’s now out performing live, and looking even better than she looked before she got pregnant.  So what’s the secret behind her post-baby body bounceback?  Gabby credits the fact that she’s just very busy…and, most importantly, she’s young.

“I don’t know, I guess being a mom…I really haven’t gotten the chance to, like, eat all the junk food that I was eating,” she laughed to reporters not long ago. “So I guess it really just cut [the weight] out in my face and all around the place!”

The “I Hope” singer, who welcomed Baylah about three months before her 21st birthday, also thinks her relative youth had something to do with it.

“I thankfully was able to kind of like shed some weight quickly and get off all the baby weight and I feel good,” she said. “I dunno, I’m thankful for that — that my body kinda was able to snap back and be healthier than it was before, even after having a baby, and quickly, after that. So I can thank, I guess, my 21-year-old metabolism for that!” 

Gabby is among the many stars who’ll be taping a concert in Nashville at the end of the month for an upcoming ABC-TV special.  Newlyweds Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are also performing, as are American Idol judge Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and others.
