Josh Gracin is now a father of five!

The Season 2 American Idol finalist shares four children with his ex-wife, Ann Marie. They had three daughters, Briana (age 17), Gabriella (age 13), and Isabella (age 11) as well as one son, Landon (age 14).

Josh and Ann Marie eventually divorced, and Josh found love again with Katie Weir. The two got engaged in 2015 and married on May 6, 2017.


After two years of marriage, the couple was thrilled to announce they were expecting their first child together. They made the big announcement on July 10, 2019.

Josh and Katie already knew the baby’s gender at that time, so they shared that news with fans as well. They wanted the world to know they were having a baby boy!

On top of that, the couple also revealed what they planned to name their son: Luka Roman Gracin.


The couple stuck to their plan, and baby Luka Roman finally arrived on January 13!

Josh and Katie waited a day before sharing the news of Luka’s birth. Josh’s rep confirmed the news with People, sharing that Luka was born at 9:03 PM and weighed 7lbs, 15oz, and was 20 and a half inches long.

The “Nothin’ to Lose” singer also issued a statement to the publication in which he gushed about his son and wife:

We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our son Luka Roman into the world,” Josh said. “My amazing wife endured so much to make sure our little boy arrived healthy and happy! We are beyond blessed.”

The couple shared some exclusive photos of baby Luka with People, but also posted these photos on their respective social media accounts.

We are so in love with this little angel,” wrote Katie alongside a slideshow of images.




My wife @katiegracin and I are beyond blessed to welcome our baby boy into the world,” Josh wrote on his own post about Luka’s birth.

Congratulations to Josh and Katie on their new addition! Baby Luka is such a cutie.

We have a good feeling that Josh may end up writing a song about his baby boy one day. He was already inspired to write a song about Katie, and it’s called “Nothin’ Like Us.” Give it a listen in the video below.

Welcome to the world baby Luka!
