Kris Allen is a dad
Singer KRIS ALLEN is a first-time father after his wife KATY O'CONNELL gave birth to a baby boy.
The pair has named their son Oliver Neil Allen, with their representative telling Usmagazine.com, "He's seven pounds, seven ounces, 20 3/4 inches long. Mom and baby are doing great."
The couple married in 2008, a year before Allen won American Idol.
The musician announced he was set to be a dad in January (13) after he and O'Connell were involved in a nasty car crash on New Year's Day (01Jan13).
He wrote in a post on Twitter, "Thank you, Ford, for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family and the little one we have on the way safe. Yes, I got in a really bad wreck tonight, and yes, I'm having a lil (sic) baby."
