Former American Idol finalist Michael Lynche and his wife Christa are the new parents of a baby boy, named Kingston Michael Lynche.

"The best part of life after Idol has been my wife Christa and my baby Laila getting to travel everywhere with me," Lynche told People.com. "Now that we’re adding a new little one to our family, we couldn’t be happier!"

Lynche came in fourth on the Fox contest -- Lee DeWyze was that year's champ -- and has continued on the path toward music success. The family man's debut album is set to drop in the spring through Big 3 Records, and he has continued to perform gigs on tour.
