“Finally!!! It's official...I'm auntie Kellie!!!!!! :)” she wrote Tuesday.
She did not reveal the baby's name at the time.
People asked Pickler if she and hubby Kyle Jacobs would be expanding their family in June 2011. She explained, “I don't think people realize ... the responsibility that comes along with [parenthood]. It's almost like a fad. I don't know what's gotten into these kids where they feel like they have got to have a baby because their friend has one or whatever. They don't take into consideration that it's a very selfish thing to do if you're not prepared and ready."
In September the American Idol alum publicly shaved her head in support of her friend Summer Holt Miller who is battling breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy.
