'Idol' Alum Tamyra Gray Is Expecting

Former American Idol contestant Tamyra Gray will be singing a new tune soon: "Rock-a-bye, baby." Gray and husband Sam Watters (Color Me Badd) are expecting their first child in July, according to EW.com.

"I’m just trying to take care of myself and enjoy it," Gray, 30, said of her pregnancy. "This is way harder than being on Idol." Gray and Watters, 39, wed in 2006 are waiting to find out the sex of the baby until the birth.

When Gray and Watters do welcome their bundle of joy, there's no word yet on how they will announce it. Perhaps they'll take Goldie Hawn's approach and tell the world via Twitter.

Hawn, 64, welcomed her new grandson to the world last week when she tweeted, "Hurray! Baby BOY born to my son Oliver and his beautiful wife Erinn TODAY,” she wrote. “So happy! A new life! I’m Dancin my happy dance."

People reports that baby boy Hudson (son to Rules of Engagement star Oliver Hudson and his wife, actress Erinn Bartlett) was born on Friday, March 19. Hudson, 33, and Bartlett, 37, already are parents to 2-and-a-half-year-old son, Wilder.
