American Idol alum Josh Gracin and his wife, Katie, are expecting!

The couple, who wed in 2017, will welcome their first child together in early 2020. The baby will be Gracin’s fifth child, since he has three daughters and a son from his former marriage.

“Katie and I are beyond excited for baby Luka to arrive early 2020!” Gracin told PEOPLE. “We’ve been praying for a baby since we decided on a name last year for a boy and a girl.”

Gracin and Katie chose the name early on because of the way it represents Gracin’s multi-cultural background.

“Luka represents my father’s Croatian heritage and Italian blood,” said the singer. “Prayers were truly answered!”

Gracin also shared the news on social media, along with a photo of a balloon with Baby Gracin on the front.

Gracin has also been working on new music. After releasing “Good For You” late last year, he’s back with “Lucky Stars,” from an upcoming new album.
