Grammy-nominated songwriter and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi has announced that she and husband Mike McCuddy will welcome their first child, a baby boy, via surrogate in the coming weeks.

The overjoyed parents-to-be have already named their little boy. “We are eagerly awaiting the healthy and happy birth of our son Greyson James Carroll McCuddy,” DioGuardi, 42, told People.

What started as a heartbreaking story, after years of struggling with fertility issues and unsuccessful rounds of IVF, will now have the happiest ending of all. As DioGuardi says, “We made a personal decision to try with a surrogate. I asked someone we knew, a friend. And on the first try, it worked.”

Sharing pregnancy struggles with the public is a very courageous thing to do, but having a friend offer to carry your child — now that’s a sign of deep, true friendship. Here’s to a safe and healthy delivery!
