'American Idol' alumnus Tamyra Gray is expecting a baby in July, reports Entertainment Weekly.

"I'm just trying to take care of myself and enjoy it," says Gray. "This is way harder than Idol." Gray finished fourth on season one of Fox's smash music competition.

The child will be the first for Gray, 27, and her husband, music producer Sam Watters, 36, a former member of 90s R&B group Color Me Badd. The couple wed on Valentine's Day in 2006 on the island of Capri, Italy.
