American Idol Alum Gina Glocksen Is Pregnant — She’s Having a Girl! (VIDEO)

The American Idol family is about to grow by one!

In this week’s installment of TVLine’s “Reality Check,” two surprising faces from Season 6 joined Michael Slezak and Idol alum Melinda Doolittle to dish about last week’s performances: Jordin Sparks (Season 6 winner) and Gina Glocksen (ninth place)!

“We’re actually in Chicago, we’re actually at Gina’s house right now,” Melinda begins around the 7:25 mark.

But Jordin has even bigger news about their location: “She’s gonna have a baby!” she exclaims, realizing then that she has let the cat out of the bag.

“She’s going to have a baby,” Melinda confirms. “We’re going to be aunties and we’re really, really excited. There’s a little girl coming.”

“Yeah, there is!” Gina finally chimes in. We’re so excited for this talented lady to have a baby. There’s no doubt that she (and the baby’s aunties) will do an excellent job with this unborn princess.

Gina actually announced the news back on December 16, tweeting: “Thank you everyone for your kind words. Joe and I are elated to announce that we’re going to be parents.” Her baby bump is already pretty big and she’s had her baby shower — so she’s pretty far along!

The three gals then had a chat with the TVLine editor about how Season 13 of Idol is going, with all three saying they want the Final 2 to be Jena Irene and Alex Preston. These alums definitely have their opinions about how the season has been going (wardrobe, Randy Jackson, etc.). How can you disagree with them?

Are you surprised Gina is preggers? Hit the comments and send your well wishes to the soon-to-be mom!

American Idol airs Wednesday and Thursday nights on FOX.
