Constantine Maroulis is a daddy!

The American Idol star and his partner Angel Reed welcomed their first child together on Thursday. 

Malena James was born Thursday night weighing 6 lbs., 11 oz., and measuring in at 19 inches long.

“Sometimes Christmas comes early and we’re so lucky to get the greatest gift a few days early,” Maroulis told People Magazine.

“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.”

Maroulis and new mom Reed met last year while they were starring in the Broadway musical Rock of Ages. Maroulis is currently reprising his Tony-nominated role as rocker Drew in the Rock of Ages national tour.

Congratulations to them!  What a perfect Christmas present!
