As a competitor during American Idol‘s sixth season, LaKisha Jones earned fame and fans as the single mom with a big voice. Now LaKisha, 29, is no longer single — she married financial advisor Larry Davis last October — but she’s double the mom! She’ll welcome her second child — a sibling for 6-year-old daughter Brionne — in August.

The baby will follow the release of her aptly named first solo CD, So Glad I’m Me, out on May 19th. “When I think about all the goodness in my life right now,” LaKisha said, “everyday I think ‘I’m so glad I’m me!'”

Adding to their family was important to LaKisha, who says that Brionne started calling Larry ‘Dad’ even before their wedding. “The way he interacts with my daughter and treats her as his own…I love that,” the songstress, who finished fourth on the series, told PEOPLE in October. “I may not have won American Idol, but I have won because I’m able to provide a better life for me and my daughter and that’s all I’ve ever wanted.”

The first single off of So Glad I’m Me, “Let’s Go Celebrate,” is currently available on Amazon.com.

Is she related to Star Jones? She looks an awful lot like her imho. And also Sherri (SP?) Shephard. Welll regardless, congrats to LaKisha and her family!

Hmmmm, I don’t see any resemblance to either Star Jones nor Shari Sheppard. In any case, many blessings to LaKisha and her family. It’s great to know she’s doing so well.

I didn’t expect this! She was one of my favoirte Idol Top 10, and I am so glad she is happy with her life. It made me so sad to see her be a single mom raising her daughter. I am glad that she is now happier, full of joy, married, and expecting another addition to the family and I am very glad that her daughter and her stepfather are so close. I am so happy for you LaKisha and I can’t wait to her news about the baby when he or she arrives. Congrats again and Best Wishes!

Congratulations to her!! I remember her on the show and in the concert! And since you asked Lisa, I will say boy, but I’m really not sure with her. Usually I have a guess, but with her I am not sure…

Congrats! I really loved her on AI. She was an amazing singer and had such a great spirit about her. I’ll put my guess in for a girl? I don’t know. For some reason, I’m thinking another girl.

Does anyone know who Brionne’s father is? Is he a celeb? Or is he someone not “in the business”?
