American Idol was a breeze compared to Tamyra Gray‘s latest endeavor: the season one alum is expecting a baby!

This will be the first child together for Gray and husband Sam Watters, who don’t want to know the sex of the baby until the big day.

In the meantime, the 30-year-old singer is preparing for her July due date and laying low.

“I’m just trying to take care of myself and enjoy it,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. “This is way harder than Idol.”

Gray, who has also appeared in episodes of Boston Public, and Watters, a music producer and former member of Color Me Badd, wed in Sept. 2006 in Italy.
