Congrats! Kara DioGuardi Welcomes a Baby Boy


Of all the celebs-having-babies stories, the most satisfying ones are those that involve a happy ending after a long and trying time.

That’s the case for songwriter and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, who became a mom today for the first time.

She and her husband, Mike McCuddy, welcomed a son, Greyson James Carroll McCuddy, just after 1 in the afternoon.

This joyful moment comes after years of tears for Kara, who struggled with infertility. After many IVF attempts and more than one miscarriage, she and Mike looked into gestational surrogacy. A friend happily agreed to carry their baby, and she became pregnant on the first attempt.

“She’s given us an incredible gift,” Kara recently told People.

Kara only just announced the upcoming birth a couple of weeks ago, including the baby’s gender and their chosen name. The middle name Carroll is in memory of Kara’s late mom.

Congratulations to the new parents!
