Danny & Leyicet Gokey welcome first child

Danny and fianceCongratulations to Danny and Leyicet Gokey, who yesterday welcomed their son, Daniel Emanuel Gokey, into the world. The baby was born on Sunday, Jan. 20. Danny took to his Twitter page to announce to the world, “It’s official, I’m a daddy!!!” The infant weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces, and was born just 9 days before the couple’s first wedding anniversary. Great anniversary gift, Danny and Leyicet!

After his third pace finish on American Idol back in 2008, Danny released several songs, which hit country radio, and the country charts. His “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me” made it to No. 24; but my favorite Danny Gokey single is “I Will Not Say Goodbye.”

DannyGokey152I don’t think Danny has ‘tweeted’ a picture of little Daniel yet, so I’m hoping that will happen soon. Again, Congratulations to the new parents.

I’ll be back in a bit!
