There’s a baby on the way for Jason Castro and wife Mandy Mayhall.

“I am excited to announce that there will be a new addition to the Castro family! My wife and I are expecting our first child this August,” the American Idol alum, 24, wrote on his official Web site Friday.

“We just found out yesterday that it is going to be a girl! That makes me laugh … what am I going to do with a sweet little girl?! Probably just smile a lot … I cannot wait!!!”

Castro, who finished fourth on Season 7 of the hit reality show, married Mayhall in Jan. 2010.
