“Well world, I think it’s time I make a confession….I’ve been pregnant for basically this entire quarantine 😭😂,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself and Guzman with the newborn in a hospital room. “… Ry and I decided to be a little selfish this time around and keep this journey between us.

Mary Sarah, a season 10 contestant on The Voice, welcomed her first child with boyfriend Mitch Clark, a daughter, on Jan. 6, in Nashville, her rep confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE. The newborn weighed 6 lbs., 12 oz., and measured 18 inches long.
“We are just thanking the Lord for a perfectly healthy baby girl,” the new mom told PEOPLE. “We were blessed to have a truly incredible birth and now we are just taking in every moment as new parents!

We can’t wait to share more of our journey with you all.”
The singer also revealed the sentimental story behind the little one’s moniker, adding that she and her boyfriend “are both big believers in the meaning behind a name.” They ultimately decided to combine the names they were most drawn to — Addeline and Ava. “Mitch kind of put the two names together and said, ‘What about Avalyn?’ We sat on it for a couple of days and then went to check the meaning and found ‘sound, voice, power, beautiful breath of life.’”
