"Its Official, I'm a daddy!!!" Gokey Tweeted yesterday, adding that he and wife Leyicet Peralta are now the parents of Daniel Emanuel Gokey.

"Leyicet and I are overjoyed to welcome the new member of our family," Gokey told People. "I'm ecstatic to be a first time dad and to have a new little buddy to hang out with."

Gokey - who tragically lost his first wife after botched heart surgery in 2008 - and Leyicet got married last January. He added in a statement:

“Thankfully, because of what I do, it will also allow me the flexibility to spend a lot of quality time with him. I have so many exciting projects ahead this year but a brand new baby is an amazing way to get the new year started. We feel really blessed!”
