Kris and Katy Allen welcomed their third child!
We are so excited for American Idol Season 8 winner, Kris Allen and his wife Katy. They recently shared on Instagram that Katy delivered their third child and he is perfect and healthy. They named their sweet little boy Marlo James Francis Allen and he was born on July 31! Allen shared on his Instagram that the day his son was born was such an amazing day and he said that he is so proud of his wife and Katy is "the definition of a superhero." Katy responded to Allen's post saying that Marlo was born at 10 a.m. at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, measuring 21 inches in length and weighing 8 lbs., 3 oz.
Katy shared that little Marlo's name is after family members. James is after Kris' great grandfather and then Francis is the name of Katy's grandfather. The first name "Marlo" came from the couple's oldest child Oscar. They once asked if they were to have a third child what his name should be. The boy responded with "Marlo." Katy was very surprised because she thought he would say something like "Optimus Prime." When the couple actually announced to Oscar that they were going to be having a little boy Oscar asked, "are we still going to name the child Marlo?" The couple was completely surprised that he had remembered his suggestion. That is when Katy and Kris announced that they were going to name him Marlo.

Welcome to the world my new little man Marlo James Francis Allen! Yesterday really was such a great day. I could not be more proud of my wife. She is the definition of a superhero. Marlo has only been in the world for a day but I couldn’t imagine loving him any more than I do right now. But I know that will only grow.
The whole family is so in love with their sweet new son Marlo and he is going to have so many people in his corner. Kris shares that his son has only been in the world for one day and he can't imagine loving him more than he does "right now." Then he goes on to say that he knows that the "love will only grow." Kris and Katy also have two other children. They have a six-year-old son named Oscar and a three-year-old daughter named Rose. The two older siblings are so very excited to be able to have a little new brother in their home. They can't get enough of him and they have been cuddling him non-stop.
Congratulations to Kris and Katy on their newest little baby.
