The Gokey family is growing by one more!

Danny Gokey and his wife Leyicet are expecting their fourth child together, the American Idol alum announced on Instagram over the weekend with a snapshot featuring the couple’s adorable children.

In the photograph, their oldest child — son Daniel Emanuel, 6 — holds up a strip of ultrasound photos as he and his younger siblings (brother Gabriel Daniel, 17 months, and sister Victoria Isabella, 4) smile for the camera.

“It’s official!! Baby Gokey #4 is coming this August!!! 🤦🏻‍♂️” Gokey, 38, captioned the cute image.

Leyicet shared another photograph of the trio for her own announcement on social media, which had Daniel and Victoria looking excited but Gabriel, not so much.

“2 of the 3 are excited lol baby is due in August! So excited!” wrote the fourth-time mom-to-be. “I know I’ve told half the world but I forgot to announce it here!”

Gokey — who tragically lost his first wife Sophia in 2008 after a routine surgery for congenital heart disease — married model Leyicet in January 2012, his manager confirmed to PEOPLE exclusively at the time. The couple said “I do” among family and friends in Florida.

“We are so thankful to have found each other and now be able to spend the rest of our lives together,” the newlyweds told PEOPLE in a statement.

“We pray our gratitude grows more every day because there is so much for us to do now,” they added.

Since Sophia’s death, Gokey created Sophia’s Heart Foundation in honor of his late wife. Now he’s found happiness once again with Leyicet, and told PEOPLE in January 2017 of starting a family, “This is a chapter of my life I didn’t know I was going to walk into.”

Added the Christian musician at the time, “It’s one of those things that it’s unbelievable. I didn’t know that these chapters existed.”
