American Idol’s David Archuleta to Become an Uncle

Congratulations are in store for American Idol Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta: His family is expanding!

Hold up — he himself does not have a little one on the way. (He's just a lad of 22 years, after all.) But his sister, Claudia, is expecting — so he's about to become an uncle.

As Disney Dreaming reports, Claudia and her husband, Adam Platt, will welcome a daughter in early spring. And better yet, they already have a name in mind: Violeta Oquirrh Spring.

Yeah, we thought that second name was pretty weird, too, until we Googled it and realized that there's actually an Oquirrh mountain range in Utah, a 30-mile series of mountains that forms the west side of the Salt Lake Valley — a fitting choice since David's family lives in the Salt Lake City area. From our best research, we can state that it's pronounced like "OAK-er," but you Utahns can feel free to correct us if not!

David, meanwhile, isn't around at the moment to attend any baby showers — he's in the middle of a two-year mission abroad through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. But Disney Dreaming says that he'll be back in time to welcome his new niece.

Congrats, dude!
