Former American Idol star Danny Gokey and his wife Leyicet Peralta are expecting another baby, People reports.

The new addition to the family will make for the couple's third child, including 4-year-old Daniel Emmanuel and 2-year-old Victoria Isabella.

Gokey rang in the new year with the exciting news when Peralta showed him the positive pregnancy test on New Year's Eve, saying he was "on cloud nine" when she told him.

His new album Rise drops on Friday (Jan. 13), and he's been out on tour in promotion of the new project. But fatherhood is at the forefront of his priorities -- so much so that he actually purchased a bus big enough for the whole family to join him while he's on the road.

“I refuse to miss out on my children’s lives,” the "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me" singer says. “I think we need to invest in the right things and they’ll take care of themselves.” He also shares that one of his most important messages of fatherhood is to “instill them with the education and the knowledge of the things that I’ve learned to make their life better.”

Gokey will spend the better half of 2017 on tour with Grammy-winning Christian rock band Casting Crowns, kicking off Feb. 6 in Baltimore, Md., and continuing through May when the tour concludes in Texas. Rise features a duet with fellow Idol alum Jordin Sparks, who will also star in the upcoming film based on the Rascal Flatts hit, "Bless the Broken Road."
