Danny Gokey, Wife Expecting First Child In January
Danny Gokey is on his way to becoming a father. The singer is sharing his news with fans via Facebook. He says in a post that he's "happy to announce" that he and wife Leyicet are expecting. Danny explains that Leyicet is just past her first trimester, and their little bundle of joy is due in January. He adds that they're both "so excited" to see their family grow. The baby will be the first for both Danny and Leyicet.
The baby is expected to arrive as the Gokeys celebrate their first wedding anniversary. Danny and Leyicet announced late last year that they were engaged. They tied the knot in late January. It was the second marriage for Danny. The former "American Idol" finalist lost his first wife after a routine surgery for congenital heart disease in 2008.
