The winner of American Idol's eighth season and SoJO listener favorite Kris Allen broke his arm in a New Year's car accident and announced he's about to be a dad -- so, that begs the question, are the two related?

Well, according to sources, no. The two are apparently not related.

Allen was in the car with his wife and dog. MTV News is reporting that everyone will make a full recovery despite the broken arm and some other minor injuries.

Sometime after the wreck, Allen's mother tweeted a picture of her surprised-looking son in a gurney, with his arm in some surgical wrap and his neck immobilized with a brace.
