Former American Idol Finalist expanding family through Surrogacy

Former 'American Idol' finalist Chris Daughtry and wife expecting twins

Chris Daughtry is doubling his number of children.

The former American Idol fifth-season finalist announced Monday on his band's website that his wife Deanna is pregnant with twins, who are due in November.

"Deanna and I are overjoyed about this double blessing," said Daughtry in a statement.

"Thank you for your expressions of love and support and for respecting for our privacy during this special time."

Since Deanna underwent a partial hysterectomy in 2006, the couple used intravenous fertilization and had their embryos transferred to a gestational surrogate for the pregnancy, according to the statement.

The couple, who wed in November 2000, are already the parents of 13-year-old daughter Hannah, from Deanna's previous marriage, and 11-year-old son Griffin.

While your article is correct in the fact that Chris and Deanna are expecting twins via a surrogate, the article contradicts itself by saying Deanna is pregnant!
