American Idol Alum Expecting First Child

Former American Idol contestant and actress Brooke White announced that she's pregnant with her first child with husband Dave Ray.

Due in late May, People Magazine reports that White, 28, revealed her pregnancy through her video blog, when she rubbed her belly and jumped for joy. The singer professed her excitement about her baby but noted it was hard to keep it a secret from all of her fans.

"My baby's been a gem to me already," White says during the video, according to the news provider. "I really haven't slowed down since finding out the news in September. But I kept it a secret until about two weeks ago. There are a few really hard secrets I've kept in my life – one was American Idol and the other was being pregnant. I'm a confidentiality pro!"

Just because she's pregnant does not mean she's slowing down anytime soon. According to the news source, White is still producing music and shooting video shorts.

E! Online reports that White placed fifth during the seventh season of the popular singing competition.
