American Idol Alum Colton Dixon and Wife Welcome Twins Ava Dior and Athens Elizabeth

The Christian music artist, who placed seventh on the eleventh season of Idol, told PEOPLE in February, "Becoming a dad is something I've always looked forward to. Whether seeing other kids with their parents or reminiscing on the times I had with my own when I was young, these are moments to be cherished."

Annie said that having a baby on the way was "truly a dream come true," adding, "As a first-time mom, I've felt really vulnerable navigating this new territory, but the kindness from fellow moms has helped put me at ease, along with the support of my husband."

"I think I will be able to understand life in new ways, and though I know it's a big learning curve, I'm excited for the next chapter," she continued. "Colton and I have always wanted children. We've always said, 'One day.' "

"And that day is here!" Annie raved. "I am so grateful for this gift of bringing a child into the world! Even though I'm not looking forward to the literal side of that so much."
