American Idol winner Kris Allen had some good news and some bad news to share with his fans over the New Year break.
First up, Allen, 27, was involved in a car accident that left him hospitalized with a broken arm. His mother Kimberly Allen shared a photo of her son in a hospital bed on Jan. 1, 2013, writing: "From Kris: he's in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please! #headoncollision"
She later added: "Kristopher and Katy [Allen, Kris' wife] are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you Jesus! They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow."
Allen then took to his Twitter to reassure his fans, writing: "Don't worry everyone I may have broken my wrist but the #OutAliveTour is still on."
The Idol alum also let it slip that he and wife Katie are expecting! "Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I'm having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy"
Grateful that he left the accident alive, Allen added: "Thank you @ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @ZorroPup and the little one we have on the way safe."
Congrats to the Allen family on their baby news!
