Los Angeles - American Idol winner Kris Allen has broken his arm in a car crash, but also had good news for fans - he and his wife are expecting their first baby.

"Yes, I got in a really bad wreck tonight," Allen, who won the 2009 season of American Idol, posted on Twitter Tuesday.

"And yes I'm having a lil baby," Allen, 27, also said in the message, announcing that his wife Katy was pregnant with their child.

'He's in a lot of pain'

Allen's mother Kimberly earlier put word out on Allen's accident, writing in a Twitter message "From Kris: he's in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while."

Later, she added that the couple were "both pretty beat up," Allen's arm was being set and he was slated for surgery on Wednesday.

She also posted a hospital bed photo of the wide-eyed singer with his neck in a brace and arm in a sling.

None of the postings specified where the accident took place or where Allen, who was raised in Arkansas, was recuperating.
