The ‘American Idol’ winner surprised fans by tweeting that his wife and ‘the little one’ are both safe.

Kris Allen had a rough New Year’s Day, but it sounds like he’s got a lot to look forward to in 2013 — including fatherhood! Kris, 27, and wife Katy found themselves in the emergency room Jan. 1 after a head-on car crash left Kris with a broken wrist, prompting a revealing tweet from the season-eight American Idol winner: “Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I’m having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy”

This was meant to clarify Kris’ earlier — and slightly more vague — tweet, in which he alluded to a tiny human passenger in his car.

“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 tweeted.

We couldn’t be happier »
