“We are eagerly awaiting the healthy and happy birth of our son Greyson James Carroll McCuddy,” DioGuardi said in a statement.

DioGuardi got married in 2009 and has been open for years about her struggles to conceive. Following failed IVF attempts, she and McCuddy chose this route as their best option.

“We’re praying for our surrogate, that she gets through this and that it’s as easy on her as it can possibly be, because she’s been a gem throughout the whole process,” says the songwriter and music publisher. “I’ve got two people on my mind: her and the baby. She’s given us this incredible gift.”
