There's been a lot of buzz surrounding American Idol due to it being in the final season, but there's one contestant from the show's past who's buzzing about something else...
Season 7 finalist, Brooke White, is expecting her second child with her husband, David Ray! The news is exceptionally exciting for the couple as the pregnancy did not come easy.
Opening up on Instagram, White shared an ultrasound of her unborn son (yes, it's a boy!) and the story behind her IVF treatments she needed in order to get pregnant.
"Meet our handsome little dude, due Sept. 2nd!" she wrote beside the photo. "It's hard to believe it's even real... Cause, WHEW, It's been a process. infertility is hard. IVF is downright crazy, I've been a hormonal mess for several months, but it's totally worth it, because it finally worked. Hallelujah!"
She continued, "Yes! We are so happy, we are so thankful. Yes, I have a million thoughts and feelings about this journey, cause my heart is humbled and very tender for this struggle and the many women I've come to know through it....12 weeks down, 28 to go!"
The expecting mama also shared another photo on Friday, debuting her baby bump in honor of reaching 13 weeks preggers!
Happy Friday and [peace] out 1st trimester, it's been fun, haha," she wrote beside the glowing photo. "13 weeks today! Thank you Lord! Thank you Dave for doing pretty much everything round here. And Thank you @sonnetjames for draping so nicely over my prominent protruding belly button that could be mistaken for a small island with your silky soft buttery jersey dress in such comfort and grace. It is good. I am Grateful. #13weeks #ivfsuccess #secondaryinfertility."
Brooke and David are already parents to their 3-year-old daughter, London, who they welcomed into the world in May 2012.
Congrats to the couple!
