Former American Idol contestant, Danny Gokey, welcomed his fourth child!
We are so excited for Danny Gokey! Danny and his wife, Leyicet, welcomed another baby into this world! Leyicet delivered their fourth child and they named him Emanuel Daniel Gokey and he was born on August 16, 2019. Little Emanuel weighed 8lbs 14oz. Both mother and baby are doing great and everybody is healthy and happy. The couple also has three older children. They have Gabriel Daniel, almost 2, Victoria Isabella, 4 1/2, and Daniel Emanuel, 6 1/2. Danny shared a picture on his Instagram of the three older children looking over their little brother while he laid in the hospital bed.
The family announced that they were pregnant in an Instagram post back in February. They announced by showing the three older children holding an ultrasound photo of the new little baby. Danny shared that the family would be having another baby and the baby would be "coming August." He told everybody that the best days are ahead of him and he was very excited to be able to have another child join their family. He then admitted that 2 out of 3 of the children were excited. Obviously, his youngest wasn't quite sure what was happening and didn't fully understand that they would be having another baby.
Danny said that even though he has been been a father for about 6 years he is still trying to figure out how to balance being a father and a professional singer. He wants to give his family all of the attention that they deserve, but he is also very busy with his career and he spends some time away from them especially when he is on tour. “When I get home, [Gabriel] does not let me go,” he added. “I could literally hold him and hold him. He just needs my attention. I think it’s interesting at this age, introducing a fourth child into the mix. I think that’s pretty sweet.” He said that he knows that his family misses him but he also does his career because he wants to give his family the best life possible.
We just want to say that we are so excited for Gokey family! Congratulations on the new little healthy baby boy and we are excited to see more pictures of the little guy.
