Kris Allen Starts Off 2013 With A High & A Low

Kris Allen’s 2013 is getting off to a mixed start. First, I’ll start with the not-so-great news. The ‘American Idol‘ winner was in a bad car accident: a head-on collision. He broke his wrist. OUCH! His wife, Katy Allen, reportedly suffered some injuries as well. But while announcing this not-so-great news yesterday, Kris framed it in the most positive way possible on twitter. He tweeted:

“Thank you @ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @ZorroPup and the little one we have on the way safe.”

So Kris and Katy are having a baby! The couple may have had to spend New Year’s Day in the ER,  but it will surely look up for them. Hopefully when they’re next in the hospital, it’ll be for something wonderful: the arrival of their new baby. Congratulations!
