Twins on the Way for Chris Daughtry

Chris Daughtry and his wife, Deanna, are expecting twins via surrogate, the rocker announced on his Web site Monday.

"Deanna and I are overjoyed about this double blessing," Daughtry, 30, said in the statement. "Thank you for your expressions of love and support and for respecting for our privacy during this special time."

The babies, who are due in in November, were conceived via IVF and – due to Deanna's partial hysterectomy four years ago – were transferred to a gestational surrogate who will carry them to term.

The American Idol alum and his wife are already parents to son Griffin and daughter Hannah.

Chris Daughtry Offers His Tips for a Happy Marriage

Originally posted 10/07/2009 07:45AM

Guys, listen up. One of music's hardest working rockers may have the solution to a happy home ... even while away from home for months at a time.

"Honestly, I think the biggest thing is to do what we say we are going to do," Chris Daughtry tells PEOPLE. "When we say we are not going out partying, don't let them find out that you were out partying. We don't party. We hang out ... We're not out hanging out with random girls and all this stuff. We entertain each other and keep each other in check."

Daughtry, 29, caught up with PEOPLE on the set of his band's new music video, "Life After You" from Leave This Town, about how he keeps his wife of nearly nine years, Deanna, and two kids, Hannah, 13, and Griffin, 11, not missing dad ... much.


Be Generous: "My wife, if she wants it, she will just go out and buy it," Daughtry says. "I have learned that – I have been married almost nine years now – and if she wants something she will definitely [get it]. The last thing I bought her was a really awesome diamond ring that should probably keep me out of trouble for the rest of my life."
