Bo Bice is preparing to be a proud papa for the second time.

The American Idol fourth-season runner-up and his wife Caroline Fisher are expecting their second child together in August, People reported Friday.

"I'm proud to be a dad again," Bice told People.  "We don't know if it's a boy or girl yet and don't care as long as it's healthy and has all its fingers and toes."

Less than a month after Bice finished second to Carrie Underwood during Idol's Spring 2005 fourth-season finale, he and Fisher wed in his home state of Alabama.  They welcomed their son Aidan that September.

"Aidan has helped me to grow and be a better person in the past two-and-a-half years," Bice told People.  "I've let go of a lot of things in life that I thought were important since he came into our world.  He also teaches me each day to be more loving, understanding and patient."

Bice released his debut album "The Real Thing" in December 2005 and it peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 album sales chart during its first week of release.  Last year he started "Sugar Money" -- his own record label -- and also opened a recording studio he called "Rock Hound." 

His second album "See the Light" -- which he produced and released under "Sugar Money" -- dropped last October.  He's currently working on a new album, People reported.
