Kris and Katy Allen brought a little boy into the world on Tuesday, July 30.

It's the first child for the couple.

The "American Idol" winner and his wife are high school sweethearts who married in 2008.

Oliver Neil Allen weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 20 3/4 inches long. Both he and mom are doing great, according to Allen's rep.

Kris revealed that the two were expecting after they were in a car accident in January.

"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," he tweeted. "Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I'm having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
