Martina McBride Gets Big Honor from Couple Who Wed on Stage at ACM Awards

Photo Credit: Randee St. NicholasRemember that couple that got married on stage at the 2012 ACM Awards while Martina McBride sang "Marry Me"?  They're expecting their first child next month, and the baby girl will be named Martina.

Christina Tucci tweeted the good news to Martina Thursday, and the singer tweeted back, "are you serious??? That's amazing! Congratulations!"

Christina married husband Frank Tucci on the ACM Awards. They first met at a support group for widows and widowers Christina started in their hometown.  They bonded over the challenges of single parenthood and keeping their spouses' memories alive.  That bond eventually turned into love.
