‘American Idol’ Winner in Car Crash; Announces Impending Fatherhood
Kris Allen, the winner of the eighth season of “American Idol,” and his wife Katy Allen survived a car crash on New Year’s Day, and in the process of reassuring fans that he was injured with a broken arm but would make a full recovery, announced that the couple is expecting their first child. More from E! Online:
“From Kris: he’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please! #headoncollision,” his mother, Kimberly Allen, tweeted Tuesday evening, including a picture of a good-natured Allen looking rather shocked as he clutched his wounded arm.
She continued, “Kristopher and Katy (Allen, Kris’ wife) are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you Jesus! They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow….”
…Later, Kris took to his Twitter to reassure his fans … and let slip some exciting news! “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,” he wrote.
“Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I’m having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy.”
