Things are, at last, on the up and up for 28-year-old American Idol winner Kris Allen. He is now a dashing new dad to a baby boy named Oliver Neil Allen.
Allen’s wife, Katy O’Connell gave birth on July 30, reported Us Weekly magazine.The two are high-school sweethearts that web back in 2008.
The delighted Papa shared the news via, what else, Twitter, to his 297,000-and-counting followers. And he’s been Tweeting about his new son ever since just recently Allen shared on the social network that he was already introducing the newborn to his favorite tunes, posting @KrisAllen: “Oliver is gettin his first Beatles experience listening to my favorite record “Rubber Soul”.
Earlier in the year, the couple survived a car accident. The singer of the popular hit, “Vision of Love,” broke his wrist and had to have several surgeries to repair it thereafter, reported EOnline.
The name is Latin and origin and stands for the olive tree. In the Bible, the olive tree symbolizes dignity and fruitfulness. This little guy will share his name with director Oliver Twist and, or course, Oliver Twist from the Dickens classic.
Sending best wishes to the happy, healthy Hollywood family.
