Country singer and former American Idol contestant Casey James has announced that his family is growing. The singer revealed on Tuesday (June 20) that he and his wife are expecting their second child.

In an Instagram post, James shared a photo of his adorable daughter checking out a copy of classic parenting book What to Expect When You’re Expecting ...only the title has been altered to be What to Expect When [Your] Mommy's Expecting.

"Caught my daughter catching up on some interesting reading," James captioned the photo. He also used the hashtags "#daughter" and "#bigsister," but didn't provide any clues as to the sex of his forthcoming bundle of joy or when he or she might be due.

James and his wife welcomed their first daughter in February of 2016. The American Idol star is extremely tight-lipped about his personal life, so few details are available about his children or wife. Reps for the singer confirmed confirmed his nuptials in December of 2014; James was previously married, in the mid-2000s, for just a few years.

James first made a name for himself during Season 9 of American Idol, in 2009-2010; he eventually finished third during the season. In 2015, he released a single called “Fall Apart,” but severed ties with his record label shortly thereafter. On June 9, James released a new album, Strip It Down, which features appearances from Delbert McClinton and Bonnie Bishop.
