American Idol Season 4 contestant Jessica Sierra has much to celebrate this holiday season. Despite her battle with addiction — “Don’t get me wrong…I still suffer from alcoholism,” she notes — December 1st marked two years of sobriety for Jessica, who is now embarking on a new journey: motherhood!

The singer welcomed her first child — son Kayden Cash Sierra — on Saturday, December 5th at UCLA Medical Center. Baby boy weighed in at 6 lbs. 12 oz.

Although she admits Kayden wasn’t planned, she is quick to clarify that she couldn’t be happier. “I was not married, I wasn’t like, ‘Yeah I was planning on having a child,’ but I don’t resent it,” she says.

Keeping details of the baby’s father private, only revealing he is an ex-boyfriend who is now “a very good friend,” Jessica, 24, is optimistic about her future with her son.
