American Idol season one finalist Tamyra Gray is pregnant, the singer revealed exclusively to EW. This is the first child for Gray and music producer husband Sam Watters, a former member of ’90s group Color Me Badd. ”I’m just trying to take care of myself and enjoy it,” she said. ”This is way harder than Idol.”

The couple, who wed in 2006, does not plan on learning the sex of the baby, Gray said. She is due in July.
