Kris Allen, an American Idol alum, who beat out Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey, to win season nine, was recently injured in a bad car wreck. But, despite the bad stroke of holiday luck, Kris also revealed that he and his wife, just like his former Idol competitor Danny Gokey, are expecting a baby!
Past American Idol winner, Kris Allen and his wife Katy were involved in a head on collision on New Years Day. Allen’s mother took to Twitter to share her son’s bad news, posting: “From Kris: he’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while.” It was later confirmed by Kris that he does indeed have a broken arm.
But broken arm or not, Kris could not contain excitement about the fact that his wife is expecting, and took to Twitter shortly after the accident to share that news as well. “Yes, I got in a really bad wreck tonight. And yes I’m having a lil baby,” Kris posted, adding: “Thank you @Ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family safe … and the little one we have on the way safe.”
It’s unclear exactly how far along Kris’ wife Katy is, and though she posted letting fans know that she and Kris were “pretty beat up” from the wreck, it sounds like the baby is just fine, thankfully.
