Leyicet gave birth to Gabriel Daniel in 2017. During that, Gokey told PEOPLE that he was “on cloud nine” when he found out his wife was pregnant with their third child. He added that, “I refuse to miss out on my children’s lives.”
Through it all, he somehow has found the balance in continuing on with his music career while raising a family that now features four children.
“Everyone’s waiting for that perfect moment before they have kids and my career is doing the best it’s ever been yet. One thing I didn’t want to believe in is that I couldn’t have a family and do music at the same time,” Gokey explained.0comments
Gokey placed third on his season of American Idol. He fell short of Adam Lambert and eventual winner, Kris Allen. The Wisconsin singer released his debut single, “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me” in 2009 and his first album dropped the following year in March.
His most recent album came out this April when Haven't Seen It Yet hit the market. The album wound up at No. 2 on the Top Christian Albums chart.
