Kris Allen, winner of Season 8 of American Idol, and his wife, Katy Allen, may have spent New Year’s Day in the hospital after a bad car accident, but that didn’t stop the singer from announcing some exciting baby news!  

"Thank you @ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @ZorroPup and the little one we have on the way safe," he wrote after the head-on collision.

While Kris sustained a broken arm and wrist, and his wife, Katy, had unspecified injuries, the singer added some joy to the news of his “really bad wreck,” by revealing that they’re expecting their first child together.

“Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I'm having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy,” he later confirmed on twitter.

While the “Live Like We’re Dying” crooner may not be playing guitar for a while, his Jan. 2 arm surgery will hopefully have him back to normal in no time— and ready to hold a little one in the near future.

Kris insists he’s still ready to go out on his upcoming Out Alive tour, which is slated to kick off in Killington, Vermont on Jan. 8.

We wish the best to the expecting couple…congratulations and feel better!
