    Well, that was super fast! 

    Former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi revealed that she was expecting a baby via a surrogate with hubby Mike McCuddy less than a month ago, and now—he's here!

    The couple welcomed their first child together, a son, earlier today in Los Angeles, according to People

    Kara DioGuardi is expecting!

    Greyson James Carroll McCuddy was born at 1:01 p.m. Thursday afternoon, weighing 8 pounds and 10 ounces and measured just short of 21 inches long.

    The singer-songwriter opened up about the couple's struggles to get pregnant in her 2011 memoir, A Helluva a High Note, including three unsuccessful rounds of IVF treatment during her last stint on Idol.

    "I wanted a child and there was no way I could get pregnant under the stress of eighteen-hour work days and live TV," she wrote about her decision to quit the show. "Leaving was painful and there will always be a part of me that wanted to stay. But my desire to be in control of my destiny was larger than my need to be a household name."

    And now, the pair are finally parents. Congrats!
