Danny Gokey‘s life has hit a high note — he’s going to be a dad again!

The American Idol alum, who is expecting his second child with wife Leyicet, has found out the sex of their baby on the way, Gokey announced Sunday on Twitter.

“We recently found out the gender of our baby forming in my wife’s stomach. Here’s what we found out!!” he Tweeted, with a link to an Instagram video post.

In the clip, the couple — who are already parents to 18-month-old son Daniel Emanuel — are at their ultrasound, waiting for the big reveal.

“So, baby, you think it’s a girl?” Gokey says, seconds before the technician announces, “It’s a girl!”

“I told you!” the singer’s expectant wife screams.

Gokey and Leyicet were married in November 2011 and celebrated the wedding in January 2012.

I don’t get the last paragraph. Did they elope and then celebrate with family months later?

Happy for him. I remember when he was on the Idol and the story of his first wife’s death. Glad he has found happiness again and I pray that this family will be blessed with many more occasions to celebrate.
