Gina Glocksen has her own little idol!

The American Idol alum welcomed her first child with husband Joe Ruzicka on Thursday, July 10, PEOPLE confirms.

Born in Chicago, daughter Daenerys Josephine arrived at 7:47 a.m., weighing in at 8 lbs., 4 oz. and is 20.5 inches long. The couple plan to call her Dany.

It’s been a month full of celebration for Glocksen, who now performs with Ballroom with a Twist — her birthday was on July 4, two days after her official due date.

And while the pregnancy announcement came at a special time for the family — as Glocksen’s mother, Nancy Glowacki, was preparing for double bypass surgery — the couple wanted to wait to surprise everyone with baby’s sex.

These Eco-Friendly Lunch Boxes Make Family Meal Planning Easy

07/10/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

As moms, we often have too much on our plates. So anything that can help us be more organized, while taking less the time, is a win win for the whole family.

That’s why we were excited to try PlanetBox, an eco-friendly lunch box that claims to make packing on-the-go meals a cinch.

Perfect for camp, the beach or any outdoor adventure, the stainless steel container (which was thoughtfully designed by real parents) comes in three different sizes. And not only does it encourage portion control, but it’s great for those people (young or old!) who can’t stand the thought of their food touching.

“Robert and I are so proud of our family. We were so excited to give Tyler a sibling a couple of weeks ago, especially a baby sister,” says Strug.

“Alayna is beautiful and doing well.  She is a good baby with a healthy appetite. We know she is going to follow in her big brother’s footsteps and be independent, funny and extremely active before we know it!”

Strug — who rose to fame at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, when she courageously stuck her vault landing with a third-degree lateral sprain — and her husband, an attorney, were married in April 2010.
