Former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is expecting a baby boy with husband Mike McCuddy.
DioGuardi and McCuddy are awaiting the arrival of their baby via a gestational surrogate, and he’s expected to be born within the next few weeks.
“We are eagerly awaiting the healthy and happy birth of our son Greyson James Carroll McCuddy,” DioGuardi told People.
The 42-year-old Grammy nominated songwriter spoke about her issues with fertility and their choice to move forward with a gestational surrogate.
“We made a personal decision to try with a surrogate. I asked someone we knew, a friend. And on the first try, it worked,” she explained. “We’re praying for our surrogate, that she gets through this and that it’s as easy on her as it can possibly be, because she’s been a gem throughout the whole process.”
She added “I’ve got two people on my mind: her and the baby. She’s given us this incredible gift.”
USA Today reports that DioGuardi underwent multiple failed IVF attempts before they decided to explore other options.
DioGuardi and McCuddy tied the knot in 2009.
