Merry Christmas to ALL!

Leyicet and Danny Gokey family Christmas Card A very merry Christmas to the Gokey family, friends and fans!

We thought this sweet photo of  Leyicet, Danny and kids would be perfect way to express our Christmas wish.

When we caught up with Danny Gokey on the Celebrate Christmas Tour, we thought Danny might wish a merry Christmas. But clearly, forefront on his mind was a desire to express his thanks to his fans for their love and support! You can watch his special heartfelt message at the video below:

We hope Danny gets that special Christmas wish granted at the Grammy Awards on January 28th. (To see his request from Santa, click HERE.)

While the Christian Album of the Year will likely be announced at the pre-show event, will Danny and Leyicet walk the Red Carpet at the Grammy Awards?  We’d love to see that!

Please join us and wishing the Gokeys a very merry Christmas!

Leyicet & Danny Gokey Welcome Son Gabriel

Leyicet Gokey and baby Gabriel GokeyCongratulations are pouring in for the third addition to the Danny & Leyicet Gokey family!

The Gokeys welcome their third child and second son, Gabriel Daniel Gokey.  He joins big brother Daniel Emmanuel and sister Victoria Isabella in their family. Leyicet is glowing and apparently doing well in the unique first picture of the happy parents and new baby Gabriel!

Gabriel Daniel was able to arrive between concert and appearance committments of his dad, Danny Gokey.  Danny reported on his social media:

“This picture may seem funny but our baby came just in time for me to see him be born, hold him and love him and then I had to run and catch a flight,” Gokey captioned the photo of the new mom cradling both her newborn and a phone.

“The thing is, I forgot to get a picture of me, him and my wife @leyicet together. So I called back on FaceTime to get this sweet pic!! I can’t wait to get back home tomorrow to hold him even more. So thankful I got to be with him at birth!!”
