ROCK OF AGES star Constantine Maroulis celebrated Christmas as a first-time father after welcoming a baby girl on Thursday (23Dec10).
The former American Idol singer's girlfriend, his musical co-star Angel Reed, gave birth to Malena James who weighed in at six pounds, 11 ounces (3 kilograms).
Maroulis, 35, tells People.com, "Sometimes Christmas comes early and we're so lucky to get the greatest gift a few days early.
"Angel and I are thrilled to welcome our perfect baby girl into the world... Mum and baby are healthy and I couldn't be more excited to ring in 2011 this way."
The couple met on the Broadway show last year (09).
