Constantine Maroulis of FOX’s American Idol and girlfriend, Angel Reed, got an early Christmas present this year! The couple, who both star in Broadway’s Rock of Ages, just welcomed a little girl into the world a couple of days ago, and according to the proud new papa, she couldn’t be more “perfect.”
Malena James was born on Thursday, December 23rd at 11:06pm, weighing 6 pounds, 11 ounces, and measuring at 19 inches long.
“Sometimes Christmas comes early and we’re so lucky to get the greatest gift a few days early,” the 35-year-old dad told Us Magazine.
“Angel and I are thrilled to welcome our perfect baby girl into the world today. Mom and baby are healthy and I couldn’t be more excited to ring in 2011 this way.”
Maroulis, who placed sixth on American Idol the year that Carrie Underwood won the competition, was nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in Rock of Ages. Angel Reed left the show in June, shortly after announcing her pregnancy.
Rock of Ages will be in Florida next week, and Southern California in February at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, and at Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa March 1-6.
Another reality TV star is also in Rock of Ages; MiG Ayesa of Rock Star:INXS is a cast member of the touring production.
Congratulations to the new family!
