American Idol alum Kris Allen has some big news to start of his new year — some really good, and some not so good! Starting off with the bad: Allen and his wife Katy were involved in a car accident that resulted in a broken arm for Allen. The good news, however, is that — broken arm aside — Allen, Katy and their soon-to-be baby (!) are all OK. Allen confirmed the happy news on Twitter, saying, “Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I’m having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy.” The singer also assured fans that his Out Alive tour is still on, broken arm or no!
