The couple were married last October in Beverly Hills.
The baby, due in August, will be Lakisha's second child. She has a 6-year-old daughter, Brionne, who was the one who initially encouraged her to try out for "American Idol."
The Season Six songstress (she finished fourth in the competition) has much to celebrate right now. Her debut album, "So Glad I'm Me," hits stores on May 19, with the first single, aptly titled "Let's Go Celebrate," currently airing on radio stations around the country.
"Family is important to both of us, and so we're really looking forward to our new baby's arrival," Lakisha tells Access Hollywood. "What can I say? With the baby coming and the release of my first album - when I think about all the goodness in my life right now, everyday I think 'I'm so glad I'm me!"
