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?
