Scott MacIntyre is proud to announce he's a father. The former eighth-season American Idol finalist has welcomed a baby boy, his first child with wife Christina MacIntyre whom they named Christian Scott MacIntyre, People reported. Christian was reportedly born weighing six pounds and six ounces on Wednesday, September 21 at 12:05AM in Franklin, TN. "Being a dad is already so rewarding, and I am treasuring this special time with Christina and our son," Scott, 31, told the magazine. "I have always wanted to be a mom," added his wife, "and Christian is a beautiful gift. He is a calm and easygoing little guy just like his dad!" Scott and Christina announced they were expected a son in June. Scott was born blind and previously underwent a kidney transplant at age 22 after he was diagnosed with kidney failure in his late teens. In June 2015, he was reportedly suffering from kidney failure again when a stranger offered to anonymously donate a kidney to the singer, which allowed him to become a dad. Christina's pregnancy was first announced in April, with Scott gushing about his opportunity to become a dad. "It's crazy," MacIntyre told People at the time. "It was not possible for us to have a baby while I was in kidney failure, so my donor not only gave me the gift of life but also allowed us to create a new life." American Idol's eighth season aired back in early 2009 and concluded with Kris Allen being named the winner. Scott made it to the Top 8.
