Danny Gokey welcomes baby boy
Congratulations to Danny Gokey and his wife Layicet! The pair welcomed their first baby, son Daniel Emanuel Gokey, on Sunday, January 20th. Daniel weighed in at 8 lbs 11 oz. and arrived at 9:52 pm, Danny confirms to PEOPLE magazine.
In the interview with People magazine, Danny said:
“Leyicet and I are overjoyed to welcome the new member of our family. I’m ecstatic to be a first time dad and to have a new little buddy to hang out with.
“Thankfully, because of what I do, it will also allow me the flexibility to spend a lot of quality time with him. I have so many exciting projects ahead this year but a brand new baby is an amazing way to get the new year started. We feel really blessed!”
The couple wed a year ago in Florida. It’s the second marriage for Danny, who lost his first wife to heart disease in 2008.
