The twins Chris Daughtry and wife Deanna expect via surrogate in November will be one of each!

“Big news — Deanna and I are having a boy and a girl,” the rocker, 30, announced in a video blog posted to his Web site Monday.

“We’re very excited about that. We do have names picked out but we’re going to keep them to ourselves until further notice.”

Announcing the pregnancy in May, the Grammy-nominated Daughtry frontman said that he and his wife were “overjoyed by this double blessing.”

They are already parents to son Griffin and daughter Hannah.

I would give the twins names beginning with a E and a F, that way we would have:

C- Chris
D- Deanna
E- Twin 1
F- Twin 2
G- Griffin
H- Hannah

Their two children are, I believe, her children from her previous marriage, although he has primarily raised them with her. She had an emergency hysterectomy during his Idol season.

Following up on Tyannah’s suggestion, how about Elizabeth and Fletcher?

Congrats to the Daughtry Family.Best wishes with the upcomming of your 2 new family members.God bless you and the surrogate mother and hope you all have a safe delivery.:)

If I am not wrong, Hannah from his wife’s previous marriage and Griffin was adopted.
Due to Deanna’s partial hysterectomy in 2006 they used IVF and had their embryos transferred to a gestational surrogate.

ellen- Griffin and Hannah aren’t Chris’ biological children. There Deanna’s and Chris adopted them, if I remember correctly. Deanna had an emergency hysterectomy a while ago, so thats why there is a surrogate carrying the babies.

Many congrats to them! I loved Chris on AI!

Marie on

Congratulations Chris and Deanna!!! Heres hoping they arrive with Dad’s good looks!!!

Cute idea tyannah.

Congratulations to all of you!!! I am a huge fan, and I find it very sweet that Chris and Deanna are still happily in love, and he has not let his career change that. It is similar to Jon Bon Jovi and his high school sweetheart, Dorothea, whom he is still happily married to, after all these years. I am soooo happy that even after Deanna’s hysterectomy, they are able to have children together. Best wishes to all!!! Also, Marie, I too, think Chris is gorgeous, but to say that you hope that the babies are born with his good looks means that obviously you haven’t noticed how beautiful Deanna is, as well. I hope that the babies are a mix of both parents! No matter what, they are going to be so amazingingly beautiful!!!!

Congrats Chris Deanna. Best of luck to you both. Chris, I have followed your career since Idol and I truly love your music. I like the fact that you did not leave your band. I also like the fact that you are a family man and you understand the importance of family and friends. Of course, coming from North Carolina, you would not be any other way. God bless you and your family and much continued success.
