Former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is having a baby boy via gestational surrogate.
DioGuardi, 42, and her husband Mike McCuddy will welcome their first child next month. The couple reportedly paid a surrogate $100,000 and the baby is due February 6.
“We are eagerly awaiting the healthy and happy birth of our son Greyson James Carroll McCuddy,” DioGuardi told People.
DioGuardi and McCuddy got married in 2009 and have struggled with infertility issues for years.
“We made a personal decision to try with a surrogate. I asked someone we knew, a friend. And on the first try, it worked,” DioGuardi said.
