American Idol's Bo Bice Talks Family


american-idol-bo-biceThe ninth season of American Idol began last night, and and it’s been five years since 2005 runner-up Bo Bice was just an unknown singer looking for his shot at stardom. But he’s been busy — Bo welcomed his third son this month, joining Aidan, 4, and Caleb, 1, in the Bice household.

Asked if he and wife Caroline would be trying for a girl, surprisingly Bo seemed ready for another child, of either gender. “Yeah, if the Lord blesses me with a little girl, that would be cool, but I’d be the stereotypical dad sitting on the porch with my shotgun and it’s not even duck season,” he said in an interview. “But whatever the Lord throws at me right now, I think I’ve been given more blessings than I ever deserved. If he wants to top it off with anything boy, girl I would love either of them.”

Bo talked about needing to carve out time with wife Caroline. “We try to have date nights. That’s important to do. You really have to take time with your husband or wife. I think that’s the secret to a lot of the success of our grandparents and in this generation that’s in America, it’s really getting overlooked.”
