Proud papa Michael “Big Mike” Lynche cradles 4-month-old daughter Laila Rose outside his New York City hotel on Wednesday.

The American Idol finalist, 27, missed the birth of his baby girl while in California for Hollywood Week, but listened to wife Christa deliver baby Laila at New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Jan. 13.

Lynche and his fellow singers, including champ Lee DeWyze, kick off their North American tour in Michigan on July 1.

I love the name Laila Rose, but Laila Lynch is kind of hard to say. A lot of L sounds. Cute baby and he makes it look so easy.
