Oh man! What a busy week American Idol winner Kris Allen has had, right? Probably the busiest in quite some time, especially since the sparkly-eyed crooner parted ways with label RCA back in September and we’ve hardly heard a peep from him since. But now we know what he’s been up to: Getting into car crashes and makin’ babies. All-around good family fun here.

Yes, the Idol champ announced via Twitter that he’d been in a car accident with his wife Katy Allen — a head-on collision, no less! — but also took the opportunity to reveal that the pair have a baby on the way (while giving Ford a nice plug, because why not?). 

First, Allen tweeted:

Then, he set to work popularizing the rarely-used #gonnabeadaddy hashtag:

And finally reminded fans that his tour is still happening, even though he’s injured:

So there you go. He’s #gonnabeadaddy, his wrist is broken and he’s still touring. You can’t keep a good man down.
