Clay Aiken sure has a lot to sing about lately.

The American Idol runner–up’s son, Parker Foster Aiken, was born in North Carolina on Aug. 8. And now comes word that the singer will reprise his role as Sir Robin in the Broadway musical Monty Python’s Spamalot.

Aiken, 29, who performed the role earlier this year from January to May, will perform in the show from Sept. 19 to Jan. 4.

According to Variety, Aiken s initial run in Spamalot “had a noticeable effect on box office. Weekly sales … surged the week Aiken joined the cast and took a steep tumble … after he departed.”
