David Correy has been named an X Factor finalist.
But that isn't the best news the aspiring singer received this week.
Sources confirm to TMZ that Correy, a 26-year old who told viewers on his opening episode that he was given up for adoption when he was a newborn in Brazil, has tracked down his birth mother!
Her name is Luciene Lima and she recognized the baby photos shown in Correy's segment after he was introduced on The X Factor a couple weeks ago.
Lima reportedly contacted local media in Brazil, which got the ball rollong (contacting Correy, matching up birth certificates and timelines) and so far - with DNA results not yet in - all signs point to a valid connection.
"David is so happy," a friend says. "He can't wait to meet her for the first time."
