It’s a boy for American idol alum Josh Gracin! The singer and wife Katie welcomed their son Luka Roman Gracin to the world on Monday January 13th at 9:03 p.m. in Nashville. The baby marks the couple’s first child together. Gracin is also the father of four children from their first marriage.
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our son Luka Roman to the world,” Gracin told PEOPLE. “My great wife went through so much to make sure our little boy arrived healthy and happy! We are very happy. “
Gracin also shared a cute photo of his newborn son on social media.
“Luka has arrived!” Gracin wrote. “My wife [Katie Gracin] and I are overjoyed to welcome our little boy to the world!”
Gracin announced in July that the couple were expecting a child two years after they signed the bond.
In addition to his parenthood, Gracin is also involved in his music career. The 39-year-old released the single “Lucky Stars” from a new album in 2019.
“If you listened to something I recorded, it was all over the map,” Gracin told PopCulture.com. “I mean, yes, it sounds like country and it sounds like me, but you can hear different genres in every single song and that’s one of the things the record guys said to me at the time: ‘Focus on the album and make everything out the same vein and find your niche. ‘”
Gracin has had many successes, including fourth place at Idol and a single number 1 with “Nothin ‘to Lose” – but there is much more Gracin wants to achieve.
“At this point in my career, if it left tomorrow, I could say that I was successful and did what I set out to do,” Gracin admitted. “Now I just have to make sure I’m on stage and safe.” I only give the people who come to the show an hour and a half to two hours to forget whatever their reality is. That is my goal and this is my job. “
Updates to the new music will be posted on Gracin’s website as soon as they are available.
