American Idol season 8 finalist Danny Gokey and his wife Leyicet have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy! Danny’s wife gave birth on Sunday, January 20th. The new bundle of joy is named for his dad, Daniel Emanuel Gokey.
The proud pop gushed, “Leyicet and I are overjoyed to welcome the new member of our family. I’m ecstatic to be a first time dad and to have a new little buddy to hang out with. Thankfully, because of what I do, it will also allow me the flexibility to spend a lot of quality time with him. I have so many exciting projects ahead this year but a brand new baby is an amazing way to get the new year started. We feel really blessed!”
Little Daniel weighed in at 8 lbs., 11 oz.
Congrats to the new parents!
