Bo Bice Rocks Fatherhood

Bo Bice and his wife, Caroline Fisher, welcomed son Aidan Bice into the world Saturday, Bice's RCA rep, Roger Widynowski, confirms. It's the first child for both.

None of the tyke's vital statistics--or even place of birth--were released, though Bice and his missus have reportedly been spending most of their time in Nashville.

The American Idol runner-up, 29, met Fisher, 24, two years ago in his prefame days as a guitar store clerk in Hoover, Alabama. The fledgling rocker became a regular at the restaurant where Fisher waited tables and the duo quickly began a relationship.

They tied the knot in their homestate on June 15.

The baby news tops off a banner year for the long-haired rocker, who last May nabbed second place to country fried crooner Carrie Underwood on the Fox reality hit.

Bice's good luck streak continued when his debut single, "Inside Your Heaven"/"Vehicle," opened at number one on the singles chart, knocking bona fide winner Underwood out of the top spot.

But it hasn't all been smooth sailing for the southern songster.

While performing onstage as part of the Idols Live! tour last August, Bice suffered a broken foot, but planned to soldier on with the remaining dates.

Unfortunately, the erstwhile performer received a second blow when he was sidelined for good later in the month after undergoing emergency surgery to remove a blockage in his intestines.

But even a little hospital stay didn't stop the big-hearted crooner from helping those in need.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Bice temporarily donated his Helena, Alabama home to a New Orleans family of four left homeless by the city's flooding.

"I wanted to do anything I could," Bice told People earlier this month.

The rocker relocated to Nashville with his wife to work on his upcoming record. He plans on leaving his Alabama home open to victims of the hurricane for at least six to eight months.

Bice's debut album will be released on RCA Records this fall.
