Aww congratulations to them on baby girl Castro! I didn’t even know he was married!

Ma Lee on

his wife looks really old….I thought that was his mother.

Corrie on

@Ma Lee, seriously? She maybe looks 30 at the oldest. Congratulations to Jason and Mandy!

Karen on

Not that it matters, but I was surprised by how old his wife looks as well. In this picture she looks to be in her 40s, in my opinion! Could just be the picture. He also looks extremely young.

I actually thought this was his mother as well. I then looked at another picture of her, and realized this is just a bad picture of her.

RKF on

LOL- you thought it was his mother? His pregnant mother standing next to him in a photo titled “Jason Castro and Wife Debut Baby Belly”? Maybe it’s just me, but she doesn’t even look 25. Congrats to them!

a lot of us look at the photo first, before reading the title, and i also thought i’m looking at a 40 year old woman.. well, just a bad photo then, i guess

Rachel on

It’s just a really bad picture of her. According to some articles I read online they are the same age and met in high school.

Congratulations to the couple! I don’t mean this in a nasty way but I found it amusing he said the baby ‘is going to be a girl’ – isn’t it already a girl?? 😛 Anyhow, they look very cute together and I wish them much happiness!

Soco on

You ladies need to get your eyes checked if you think that beautiful woman looks like his mother. She looks like a stunning young woman with a very handsome husband.

meagan on

I hope the baby will take after her daddy. His wife looks hideous.

Toya on

I think Jason has a beautiful voice, congratulations to them.

Mary on

She does look a lot older than him in that picture. So I can see what some of you are thinking. Soco, my eyes were just checked and they are perfect!

How do these American Idol alums financially support a baby? Do they have regular jobs? Just askin.

Also, I think this child will be very beautiful…exotic looking, by the looks of both of them!

Alexa on

She’s a cute girl, but this must just be a bad shot because she does look a lot older than she is.

It is not the best photo..but his wife is a beautiful ‘young’ woman and person.

Your right..all babies are girls for the first few months, then the gender is established. Ha, Ha..its still a girl.

So happy for this sweet couple..Yes..Jason has a nice career going on.

How on

Megan YOU look hideous just by your post…

T on

Anonymous – I can’t speak for all AI alums, but Jason Castro is a successful Christian recording artist. I would assume that’s how he plans to support his child.

Jillian on

T, he is not selling the albums or ep’s at all. I hope things pick up for him, with a baby on the way.

Jacy on

You guys are horible! She is beautiful, and if the baby looks like her it will be a pretty little thing!! Just because you guys are jealous that she’s married to him doesn’t mean you have to be so cruel. Congrats to Mr and Mrs Castro, a beautiful couple, and hope your baby is healthy and happy. God Bless.

Met both Jason and Mandy in Atlanta May of last year! She is almost a year younger than he, who is 24, and is quite beautiful inside and out! The little one will be stunning! He is blessed to have her and she him. I pray God’s greatest blessings on this precious family!
