The American Idol season 8 winner declared his entry into parenthood the way every other celebrity does it-on Twitter. On Tuesday night, July 30th, he posted, “Happy Day!!!! My little stud was born today. Oliver is here people.”
His rep later revealed the baby’s full names: Oliver Neil Allen, weighing 7 pounds, 7 ounces. Oliver’s mum is Kris’s high school sweetheart, Katy, whom he married in September of 2008. He announced his wife’s pregnancy the same way, tweeting after a New Year’s car crash, “Thank you, Ford, for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family and the little one we have on the way safe.Yes, I got in a really bad wreck tonight, and yes, I’m having a lil baby.”
His final tweet for Tuesday night was a picture of him in a hospital scrub. “My outfit for the day. The best outfit ill ever where. #bestdayofmylife.” Congratulations to the Allens.
