Kris Allen is suffering from a broken wrist but he's promising the tour that's supposed to begin Tuesday will still go on as planned.

Allen tweets he was in a car accident on New Year's Day with his wife, Katy, and dog, Zorro.

He tweets his thanks to Ford for equipping him with a car that kept his whole family safe, including "the little one we have on the way."

Little one? Allen confirms his wife is pregnant with their first child.
