Soon-to-be dad Kris Allen let a major secret out during our SXSW chat with him –- is he having a boy or a girl? Well, you’ll have to check out the interview to find out, but let’s just say he/she will be wearing plenty of fedoras!

Chelsea Briggs caught up with the American Idol alum to dig deeper on some “secret stuff” he has in the works, an embarrassing on-stage moment, and details on upcoming music he has for us.

While Kris may still be recovering from a recent injury where he shattered his wrist and got a pretty badass scar from it, that’s not slowing him down too much when it comes to working on new music. Talking about his new album, he explained that at the end of the day, he just doesn’t care anymore about pleasing anybody but himself. “I’ll make whatever feels right and just let people hear it,” he said.

And that “secret stuff” we mentioned earlier? Well, let’s just say that it may or may not have to do with a musical collaboration! Kris refused to go any further than revealing that, but he did tell us that he’s having a boy this summer so we can’t really complain. We will say that we’re beyond stoked for some new music from Kris in the near (hopefully very near) future!

Who do you think Kris’ collaboration will be with? Could it be with another Idol alum?
