A.M. A&E: Werewolves of Hamilton

Babyidol1Yes, she named him Idol. A preggers woman who toughed it out Monday at the Dallas open-audition for next year’s “American Idol” competish wound up going into labor while waiting her turn in Texas Stadium. Antoria Gillon wasn’t about to give up her hard won spot in line, so she braved the long wait (doing the ‘hee-hee-hee-ho’ breathing exercise the entire time, no doubt) and finally got her turn, in between contractions. (Would love to know what her audition number Babyidol21_2 was. “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now”? “Be My Baby”? “Get Ready”? ).

Undoubtedly impressed by her fortitude and determination, the local judges invited her to come back for the next round of auditioning. On the heels of that good news, Gillon got herself to a local hospital, and in the wee hours of Tuesday, the world welcomed Jamil Labarron Idol McCowan, all six pounds and seven ounces of him. (Wonder what Simon would’ve made of her performance in the delivery room? Paula surely would’ve gushed.) Just think, in another 18 years, he can audition for the 2025 edition of “Idol.”
