An American Idol Winner has been hospitalized following a nasty car accident...and makes a surprising announcement!

Season 8 winner Kris Allen suffered a broken wrist in the head-on collision on New Year's Day.


His mom tweeted the news and a photo to fans, adding that he might not play guitar for a while.

That was followed by the following tweet from Kris himself, '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.' (Nice plug, Kris.)

That was followed by, 'Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I'm having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy'

We're glad to hear Kris and his fam are okay...congratulations to them all on the new baby!

Lots of celebrity kids on the way!
