SO exciting! Kris Allen is now a dad to a beautiful baby girl and we could not be more thrilled for the ‘American Idol’ winner and his wife, Katy. Even sweeter, the happy couple announced the news with a super precious pic of their newest bundle of joy!
Kris Allen, 31, and his gorgeous wife, Katy, welcomed their newborn daughter into the world on June 20 — and Kris was so happy he could hardly contain himself on social media! Kris and Katy are already the proud parents of 2-year-old Oliver, but now that a little girl is on board, Kris is preparing for “hair braiding” sessions! And apparently, she’s already got him wrapped around her little finger — aw!
“Welcome to the world Rosie. Oh man…I am done. She’s already got me figured out I think,” the singer wrote on Instagram. “Excuse me while I go learn how to braid hair on YouTube for the next 13 years…cuz that’s how long it’s gonna take me. #itsagirl #rosie.” SO sweet! Clearly Kris is over-the-moon about the birth of his daughter, and we don’t blame him. She IS a little cutie!
After all, Kris couldn’t stop gushing over Rosie on social media as he posted the sweetest pic of her on Insta. The infant was born on Saturday, June 18, at 4:15 p.m., according to People mag. And she was perfectly healthy weighing in at 7 lbs., 10 oz., and measuring 19 inches long. Talk about the perfect Father’s Day AND birthday gift, as Kris’ birthday is June 21!
Rose Elizabeth Allen, who will be called “Rosie,” was born in Nashville, Tennessee and she joins big brother, Oliver. “We’re trying [to prepare him]. I don’t know if he completely understands it or if he’s gonna love it,” the American Idol winner revealed to the publication back in March. “I think he might be a little jealous.”
Unlike with their son, Kris and Katy decided to keep the sex of their newest addition a secret until birth, which, according to Kris, made the pregnancy a bit more exciting. “We found out with our son, but we just feel like there’s not enough mystery in the world today,” he said. “Now it’s kind of like: Let’s have fun with it! We’re not putting a ton of pressure on it.” Sounds like a good plan to us!
How sweet is baby Rosie, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for Kris and Katy?
