American Idol alum Casey James is now the proud father of a son! On Dec. 17, the singer posted a photo of his new little boy on social media, and announced his name, Maverick Pierce.

"Thank you Jesus for this amazing blessing. Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you my son. Maverick Pierce James. The best gift for the Christmas season that I could ever ask for," James captioned the sweet newborn's photo.

James did not give any further information about Maverick's birth. The baby joins big sister Lexi, who was born in early 2016.

James is not one to share a lot of details when it comes to his private life. His reps confirmed he had married wife Kelli in 2014, but few other details are known about his family. He was briefly married before in the mid-2000s.

James first made a name for himself during Season 9 of American Idol, in 2009-2010; he eventually finished third during the season. The singer-songwriter released a blues-and-soul influenced album called Strip It Down in June. He also signed with a new label this year, APA Nashville.
