The rock star is even writing lullabies for the newest members of his family — twins who are due later this year.

Chris Daughtry may have developed a reputation on American Idol as a rocker who refused to compromise, but the lead singer of Daughtry revealed a softer side in an interview with, and admitted that being a good dad to his kids is always in his thoughts when he’s writing songs. And that means no R-rated lyrics!

“Certainly you feel that you don’t want to put anything in your music that you wouldn’t want your kids listening to,” he says. “That’s always in the back of my mind. Not only do we have a lot of kid fans, but more importantly, we want to be an example to our own kids.”

Chris and his wife Deanna already have two kids (Hannah, 13, and Griffin, 12) and they’re are expecting fraternal twins through a surrogate later this year, which has inspired Chris to tackle a whole other form of songwriting — this gravel-voiced singer is penning lullabies! Hey Chris, we’d love to hear them!
