Since the first moment we met David Correy on The X Factor 2012, we’ve been worried. Why? Well, the poor guy has been looking for his mom non-stop since, um, well, it seems like a while now.

You see, no one gets much screen time on XF in the beginning, so it’s vital that we fall in love with them pretty much the second they appear — after all, contestants rely on votes to keep in the competition. David found a way into our hearts the sad way. Although his singing is just dandy and his look is (the boy version of) fierce, he made us reach for our tissues with his sob story about being adopted.

LOOK PEOPLE — ALL HE WANTS IS TO FIND HIS MOM!

Well, we can stop crying (you too, Jillian) because TMZ is reporting that David has found his mom! After his first episode of the show aired in Brazil, his birth mother (who still lives there) Luciene Lima recognized his baby pics and started seeking him out. Word is, once she had traced the adoption through the courts, she got in touch with local media to track down her inked offspring.

DCorr, who is in the Top 16, “can’t wait to meet her for the first time.” We’re so happy, we are barely concerned that David has now run out of things to talk about on television...
