Season 8 "American Idol" winner Kris Allen broke his right wrist in a head-on car collision Tuesday and then dropped the news that he and wife Katy are expecting a baby.

Allen's mom, Kimberly, tweeted a picture of her son in the hospital and noted that he would have surgery Wednesday. She also wrote how granddog Zorro was fine — "Very shook up, but not injured."

She left the bigger news to her son, who tweeted hours later: "Thank you, @Ford, for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family and the little one we have on the way safe ... Yes, I got in a really bad wreck tonight, and yes, I'm having a lil baby."

And for those faithful Kris Allen fans who are alarmed by the broken wrist, have no fear. Allen assures that is "Out Alive tour is still on"
