Clair Announced Her Pregnancy Last Year
Clair and Thomas announced they were expecting a baby last year around Halloween, as they dressed up as bags of ice and made a reference to the Vanilla Ice song “Ice Ice Baby.” The couple was married in December 2021, shortly after Clair’s 18th birthday.
Not long after announcing her pregnancy, Clair released a new album called That They Might Have Joy, featuring 15 songs. Fans of AGT might remember the singer from her time on Season 12 of the show, when she was just 13 years old.
Clair’s father, who was battling cancer during her time on the show, sadly passed away while she was still competing. She made it to the Finals, where she delivered an emotional performance of “What a Wonderful World.”
