Country singer and former American Idol contestant Casey James is now the father of two! The artist's wife have recently gave birth to their second child, a baby boy.

James shared his family's happy news on Instagram on Saturday (Dec. 16). Although he did not say when his son was born, James did reveal his name: Maverick Pierce James.

"Thank you Jesus for this amazing blessing," James writes on Instagram. "The best gift for the Christmas season that I could ever ask for."

James revealed that Baby No. 2 was on the way in late June; the singer 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.
