Bucky Covington of "American Idol" is expecting his first baby with fiance Katherine Cook. On Feb. 13, Taste of Country shared the big news about the baby that is on the way. This will be the first child for both of them.

He had no idea what a pregnancy test even was as she threw three down in front of him showing him the happy news. Bucky had to ask what she was showing him, but once he figured it out he was really excited about the news. He is ready to be a dad and even teased that he is watching "Modern Family" for pointers. Covington promises to be a fun dad, but of course have some boundaries.

Bucky also admits to freaking out a bit when holding babies. Fans have him do it for pictures in meet and greet lines but this is something he is not used to at all. He will figure it all out just fine though when his little bundle of joy gets here. They don't know if it will be a girl or a boy yet, but they are excited to find out.
