Kris Allen injured in car accident, announces wife Katy is pregnant

kris-allen-injured-broken-arm-car-accident.jpg "American Idol" Season 8 winner Kris Allen had a rather scary New Year's -- he and wife Katy (pictured below in 2011) were involved in a head-on collision that left the singer with a broken wrist. Allen's mom Kimberly informed his fans of the accident on Twitter:

"From Kris: he's in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please! #headoncollision," tweets Kimberly, along with the above picture.

Kimberly adds, "Kristopher and Katy are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you Jesus! They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow ... Zorro is fine too! Very shook up, but not injured." Zorro is Allen's dog, a French bulldog.

Allen himself tweets, "Thank you @ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @ZorroPup and the little one we have on the way safe."

And lest fans think he is kidding, the singer assures them he and Katy are "having a lil baby" and adds that his "Out Alive" tour is still kicking off Jan. 8. This is the first child for the couple.
