Daughtry also announced the baby news on his site in May. "Deanna and I are overjoyed about this double blessing," he wrote.

A statement posted on their site also detailed Deanna's struggle to get pregnant before they decided to work with a surrogate.

"Due to Deanna's partial hysterectomy in 2006, the couple used IVF and had their embryos transferred to a gestational surrogate."

The couple, who wed in November 2000, are also parents to Hannah, 13 (from a prior relationship of Deanna, 36), and Griffin, 11.
