  • Miz

    So happy for Kris and Katy that they finally can hold their beautiful baby boy. I can’t wait to see pictures.

  • Kirsten

    Congrats to Kris, Katy, Oliver and Zorro!

    Of course, with a name like Oliver, I can’t help but say, “Please, sir, we want some more [music]”, but that can wait until he has had a very long opportunity to bond with his new child.

  • Happyhexer

    So happy for Kris & Katy! Oliver is one lucky little boy, doing so well in the parent sweepstakes.

  • linsmile

    Congratulations to Kris and Katy! I have no doubt they will be wonderful parents. And Kris is sure to be playing with his son in baseball, and teach him to play guitar.
    We look forward to pictures of a happy family.

  • ladymctech

    I love the name. Wishing Kris and Katy the best!

  • nncw

    Congratulations to Kris and Katy – super happy for them!

  • Pippygirl

    Somebody should tweet to Kris “Pics or it didn’t happen”

  • Valarie

    Welcome to his Royal Highness, Prince Oliver the first, of American Idol.

  • Gwen

    Cute name.

  • Larc

    Zorro has a new job: Oliver’s Chief of Security.

  • Miz

    I wonder if some mag is getting the exclusive on pics. It’s not like Kris or his family to have not tweeted a photo yet. You know they are taking a million of them.

  • girlygirl

    Michael Sarver’s wife tweeted this (awww)


    #@krisallen will be a great daddy bc the main thing my kids recall of him is him reading kids books to them in the idol tour dressing room.

  • Mel432

    Congratulations to Kris and Katy. I can hardly wait to see pics of their baby who has to the most beautiful baby ever. Kris’s twitter numbers are really blowing up.

  • Jonins

    Alex Trugs also tweeted his congrats,

  • Jonins

    I love Mrs. Sarver’s tweet re Kris’s reading children’s books to her kids. It just proves to show Kris really loves kids. He will be a great dad. Congratulations to Kris and Katy. Can’t wait to see how Oliver looks like.

  • Mel432

    Like someone upthread mentioned, Kris always posts pics of everything. I bet Kris and family are not releasing any pics because some big magazine is getting the exclusive. We should expect a cover pic with Oliver very soon.

  • Jonins

    As much I want it to be a cover pic, but I highly doubt they will make Oliver as a cover pic for US magazine. Maybe they will have the pic inside the magazine. But still I will be happy to see it.

  • AZIdolFan

    Congrats to Kris & Katy & Zorro!!! Welcome to the world baby Oliver!!!

  • Mel432

    I would be Kris and Oliver, not just the baby.

  • isb77

    A sweet tweet from Paula:

    The Real Paula Abdul @PaulaAbdul
    .@krisallen CONGRATULATIONS DAD!!! All my love and warmest wishes to you, Oliver and Katy!!! THIS IS WONDERFUL! xoxoP

  • jobeob987

    Congrats, Kris and Katy! Oliver rocks!

  • girlygirl

    Unfortunately, Kris isn’t a big enough name to get a magazine cover for this bit of news. I do think they have an exclusive deal with some magazine for the baby pics, though

  • HopeForMusic

    I’m so happy for Kris and Katy! I love the name Oliver, too. It has character, and it’s not trendy. This baby is bound to be cute, and equally bound to be very loved and cared for. I, too, can’t wait for pictures!

  • disqus_l9306FWZtD

    Love the name Oliver! Looking forward to seeing pics.

  • Face

    Congrats to them both :)

  • mzhallcat

    Congratulations to Kris and Katy! So happy for them as they begin this new adventure with little baby Oliver. Can’t wait for the new songs this bundle of joy will inspire.

  • Miz

    I’d hope they’d include Katy too :)

  • tripp_ncwy

    This is so sweet Daniel Allen post fb;
    “My nephew was just born and HE’S ALREADY IN A MAGAZINE!My buddy has no clue how awesome he is already. I am going to save a hard copy of this and give it to him on his 7th birthday. In remembrance that he was 7lb, 7oz. And that my brothers favorite number growing up was 7!”

  • KelseyW

    Congrats to Kris, Katy, Zorro, and the rest of their family!! Welcome to the world little Oliver! <3 <3 <3

    I can't wait to see photos of the new family. :)

  • tripp_ncwy

    Kris Allen @KrisAllen
    Now that he’s here, just a quick announcement in the next hour.

  • Mel432

    I think Daniel already spilled.

  • girlygirl

    The street team said it was something that fans have been waiting for, so I doubt it’s that

  • girlygirl

    Looks like the anouncement is that the new website is up

    (and aww…baby feet!)

  • Indigobunting

    I agree :)
    I really don’t like when parents name their children after themselves :/ Unless it is a middle name.
    And Kris resisted the urge to name Oliver either Kris, Chris or Allen/Alan!

  • Miz

    I’m excited about the new updated website. I’m sure to be checking it out frequently.

    Loved the baby feet. I liked the essay he did about nature in his journal.

  • Miz

    In numerology his birth date is 7 too. It’s the first thing I checked when I saw his weight.

  • washpd

    Why do you think this?
