There was a time when Kris Allen and his wife Katy O'Connell were considering having children – but since the arrival of dog Zorro in December, everything has changed.
"We thought about it for a time, and then we got a dog and we're like, 'Okay, we're good!'" Allen told reporters at the American Idol results show Thursday.

No one can bring out the stars quite like Clive Davis! The music mogul's Pre-Grammy Gala & Salute to Industry Icons (this year honoring Universal Music Group Chairman and CEO Doug Morris) is an annual tradition and one of the biggest parties of the year. And with a bevy of stars – including Jay-Z, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Russell Brand, Taylor Swift, Ne-Yo, Sheryl Crow, Adam Lambert and Barbra Streisand – in attendance, Saturday night's bash at the Beverly Hilton Hotel was no exception.
"It's one of those parties that you have to come to," Ciara, in head-to-toe Givenchy, told PEOPLE on her way in. "I'm excited to see everybody! It's cool to see people that you know, people that you don't know. It's always great to see Clive, and I'm just looking forward to having a great time."
Fergie, in a Zuhair Murad party dress, breezed down the red carpet in a hurry, stopping only to have a happy chat with Nick Jonas. But the singer had a good reason to rush: The Black Eyed Peas opened the show with Slash singing the classic Guns n' Rose's tune "Sweet Child O' Mine."

Shocked over Adam Lambert's recent performance antics? Don't be, says American Idol winner Kris Allen, because there is more to come.
"Yeah, that's who he is," Allen told the press at last Friday's Z100's Jingle Ball at New York's Madison Square Garden. "Obviously, he couldn't do that stuff on Idol. And so you're getting to see the real Adam now."
Lambert caused an uproar for his sexually-charged performance on the American Music Awards last month, which led ABC to cancel his scheduled New Year's Eve appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and his performance on Good Morning America. He was allowed to appear on The View.

Though newly minted American Idol winner Kris Allen is basking in the joy of releasing his self-titled debut, there is one thing missing in his life.
"Furniture," the singer, who just moved into a new home in Los Angeles with wife Katy, told PEOPLE at the American Music Awards on Sunday.
"We don't have any furniture in the house yet, but we are trying to find it," he adds, admitting the hunt has been a little difficult. "We don't have time," says Allen of trying to fit in a few furniture shopping moments. "So that's why we are sleeping on a blowup mattress right now."
