American Idol alum Josh Gracin and his wife Katie are expecting their child together.
The singer confirmed the news to People, revealing that a baby boy will be joining their family early next year.
“Katie and I are beyond excited for baby Luka to arrive early 2020!” he told the publication. “We’ve been praying for a baby since we decided on a name last year for a boy and a girl.”
The name they selected holds a special place in Gracin’s heart.
“Luka represents my father’s Croatian heritage and Italian blood,” he explained. “Prayers were truly answered!”
Gracin and Katie tied the knot in May 2017 after meeting at Nashville hot spot Tin Roof. Katie, now a graphic designer, worked there while she attended college.
“We got to talking and realized we had a lot in common, so I asked her on a date,” he previously told People. “Our motto is that there are no accidents, only reasons. How we found each other and fell in love is the reason we believe and live by that.”
Gracin is also father to Isabella Sophia, 10, Gabriella Ann, 12, Landon Joshua, 13, and Briana Marie, 17, from a previous relationship.
After appearing on season two of American Idol, Josh Gracin went on to release his self-titled debut album, which spawned hits like “I Want To Live” and “Nothin’ To Lose.” His latest single, “Lucky Stars,” is available now.
