American Idol Season 4 contestant Jessica Sierra has much to celebrate this holiday season. Despite her battle with addiction — “Don’t get me wrong…I still suffer from alcoholism,” she notes — December 1st marked two years of sobriety for Jessica, who is now embarking on a new journey: motherhood!
The singer welcomed her first child — son Kayden Cash Sierra — on Saturday, December 5th at UCLA Medical Center. Baby boy weighed in at 6 lbs. 12 oz.
Although she admits Kayden wasn’t planned, she is quick to clarify that she couldn’t be happier. “I was not married, I wasn’t like, ‘Yeah I was planning on having a child,’ but I don’t resent it,” she says.
Keeping details of the baby’s father private, only revealing he is an ex-boyfriend who is now “a very good friend,” Jessica, 24, is optimistic about her future with her son.
“I think things happen in life and don’t let your past get you down. You can always overcome anything if you want to and be a better person, so don’t let people tell you that you can’t.”
