It’s raining babies in Tinseltown as 2010 winds to a close!
Shaggy-haired rocker Constantine Maroulis, the Greek god that made the ladies swoon on the fourth season of American Idol, welcomed a daughter with girlfriend Angel Reed this week. The new parents met while co-starring in the hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages.
Reed gave birth to daughter Malena James, who weighed in at 6 lbs. and 11 oz., on Thursday at 11:06 PM, Us Weekly reports.
“Sometimes Christmas comes early and we’re so lucky to get the greatest gift a few days early,” a thrilled Constantine, 35, told the mag in a statement. “Angel and I are thrilled to welcome our perfect baby girl into the world today. Mom and baby are healthy and I couldn’t be more excited to ring in 2011 this way.”
In 2009, Maroulis — who finished sixth on Idol — was nominated for a Best Actor Tony for his lead role in the musical, which follows a pair of young lovers coming of age to the soundtrack of a bevy of rock hits in 1980s Los Angeles.
