After a long struggle with infertility and IVF treatments, American Idol star Brooke White shared some exciting news: She's pregnant with her second child!
Brooke, 32, and her husband David Ray are expecting baby no. 2, a boy, in September. She made the announcement with an ultrasound pic on Instagram.
"Meet our handsome little dude, due Sept. 2nd!" she captioned the photo. "It's hard to believe it's even real... Cause, WHEW, It's been a process. infertility is hard. IVF is downright crazy, I've been a hormonal mess for several months, but it's totally worth it, because it finally worked. Hallelujah!"
Meet our handsome little dude, due Sept. 2nd! It's hard to believe it's even real... Cause, WHEW, It's been a process. infertility is hard. IVF is downright crazy, I've been a hormonal mess for several months, but it's totally worth it, because it finally worked. Hallelujah! Yes! We are so happy, we are so thankful. Yes, I have a million thoughts and feelings about this journey, cause my heart is humbled and very tender for this struggle and the many women I've come to know through it. I wrote them down but Dave said they were a little heavy for an announcement, and he's probably right. soon I will share. But, I have to say, right now, THANK YOU, for all of your prayers, for your good vibes, for your hope, your perspective, your stories, and your support. You've helped me more than you know. I love you, and I just want to do the same for others. 12 weeks down, 28 to go.💙💙💙
The singer also showed off her adorable, but still-tiny, baby bump.
"13 weeks today!" she wrote. "Thank you Lord! And thank you Dave for doing pretty much everything round here."
Happy Friday and ✌️ out 1st trimester, it's been fun, haha😁 13 weeks today! Thank you Lord! Thank you Dave for doing pretty much everything round here. And Thank you @sonnetjames for draping so nicely over my prominent protruding belly button that could be mistaken for a small island with your silky soft buttery jersey dress in such comfort and grace. It is good. I am Grateful. #13weeks #ivfsuccess #secondaryinfertility
Brooke and Dave are already parents to 3-year-old daughter London, who was born in May 2012. The folk-pop crooner was a season 7 finalist on Idol, which will end for good after this season.
Congratulations to the proud parents! We're thrilled for you!
