Nicole's baby bump debut!

The 43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards were held in Las Vegas last night, and the star-studded event did not fail to disappoint.

Nicole's baby bump makes her debut

The excitement started on the red carpet, where Keith Urban appeared with us (finally!) visibly pregnant wife Nicole Kidman, who made sure to hold her dress just so, so we could see her burgeoning baby bump.

For the first time, fans voted for the winner of Entertainer of the Year -- and Kenny Chesneytook home the honor for the fourth time in his career.
