Danny Gokey’s family is about to grow bigger by one! The former “American Idol” finalist dropped the baby news during his stop on the singing competition Thursday night. 

Former finalists Elliott Yamin and Danny Gokey stopped by the show for a quick check-in with Ryan — and the rest of the world, for that matter. It was during this that Danny revealed his wife was pregnant with their second child. Danny also mentioned how he had started a nonprofit organization called Sophia’s Heart, which is named for wife and high school sweetheart Sophia Martinez Gokey who had died. The organization aims to help children and families who have been touched by poverty, sickness, disease, or broken homes.


In 2011, Danny began dating Leyicet Peralta. Soon after the two announced their engagement and were married a month later on January 29, 2012. Danny and Leyicet had their first son, Daniel Emanuel, last year. For all you Danny Gokey fans out there, Danny’s latest album is currently available for preorder — and his latest single “Hope In Front Of Me” was officially released back in January of this year.What do you think about Danny and Leyicet’s new baby news?
