This year didn’t start off on a high note for American Idol winner Kris Allen, as he and his wife Katy O’Connell Allen were involved in a car accident that left Kris with a broken wrist. However, things have certainly been looking up since then, and yesterday might have been the highlight of Allen’s year! Allen and his wife welcomed their first baby — son Oliver Neil Allen — on July 30th. Allen shared the good news via Twitter, saying, “Happy Day!!!! My little stud was born today. Oliver is here people!”

Evan Rachel Wood had some beautiful news to share via Twitter today: “Its a boy!!

Congrats to the new family!
It should come as no surprise that Fergie‘s shower for her baby boy was quite the fete! According to People, guests — included Adam Lambert, Kelly Osbourne and Lance Bass — got to enjoy “Let’s Hear It for the Boy” while enjoying some wine of Fergie’s own label, Ferguson. Of course, blue was also a major theme — from balloon animals to goodie bags! Josh Duhamel and Fergie, who recently changed her name to Fergie Duhamel, should be all set for baby boy’s arrival.
