'American Idol': Chris Daughtry, wife Deanna having a boy and a girl




Chris Daughtry took to his video blog to announce some big news -- that they are wrapping up editing on his "September" video, that there are cicadas outside his house and that he and his wife Deanna know that they are having a boy and a girl.

The couple previously announced that they were pregnant with twins but now they know what the sex of the babies is and they apparently have names all picked out, but are keeping those under wraps for now. The babies are due in November. Due to Deanna's partial hysterectomy, the babies are being brought into the world through IVF and a gestational surrogate.

Chris and Deanna married in November 2000. Hannah, 13, and Griffin, 11, are Deanna's children from previous relationships. Chris adopted Griffin upon the death of his biological father, while Hannah's father is still in her life, so she is Chris' step-daughter. Congratulations to the Daughtry family on their two newest additions!
