Kris Allen & Katy O’Connell Welcome A Baby Boy

High school sweethearts Kris and Katy are delighted at the arrival of their first bundle of joy!

“Little Oliver Neil Allen is here! He’s 7 pounds, 7 ounces, 20 3/4 inches long. Mom and baby are doing great,” the couple’s rep tells Us Weekly.

Kris took to Twitter to tweet his excitement:

Happy Day!!!! My little stud was born today. Oliver is here people!

So cute!

The proud new dad was definitely in high spirits after his baby was born. Kris posted a pic of a medium-fries winning McDonald’s Monopoly game piece along with the caption, “Not only did I have a baby today but I won this at McDonalds.”

Best day ever?

Kris On His Recovery From His Accident

“I’ve always wanted to be a dad,” told Us Weekly. The new father was in a head on car accident on January 1 and broke his wrist, which was weirdly the same time he made the announcement he was going to be a father. He then went on to talk about his recovery.

On New Year’s Day Kris found himself in the emergency room after the accident, but he had the time to tweet the good baby news!

“Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I’m having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy” the Idol winner tweeted.

He then sent out thanks to Ford, the car company for his car that was able to keep everyone in it safe despite the wreck, saying, “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.”

Congrats to the family!
