Danny Gokey and Wife Welcome Baby No. 3
Danny Gokey and wife Leyicet have announced the arrival of baby No. 3. The Gokey family welcomed Gabriel Daniel into the world on Tuesday (Aug. 29), and the American Idol alum shared the happy news with fans on Instagram.
In an image of Gokey FaceTiming his wife, the singer explains how he forgot to take a picture with his family when he was at the hospital.
"ITS A BOY!!!! Gabriel Daniel Gokey!! 8lbs 8oz," he writes. "This picture may seem funny but our baby came just in time for me to see him be born, hold him and love him and then I had to run and catch a flight. The thing is, I forgot to get a picture of me, him and my wife @leyicet together. So I called back on FaceTime to get this sweet pic!! I can't wait to get back home tomorrow to hold him even more. So thankful I got to be with him at birth!!"

Gokey's fifth studio album, Rise, was released on Jan. 13, and the proud father even bought a tour bus for his family to join him while on the road promoting the project.
