Former American Idol contestant Michael Lynche, his wife Christa Lynche, and their four-month-old daughter Laila Rose visited the “Late Show With David Letterman” at the Ed Sullivan Theater on May 17, 2010 in New York City.
Michael, who was a fourth place American Idol finalist, missed his daughter’s birth while on the show.
“I don’t think you can say anything is worth missing the birth of your child,” he said E! Online. “Only time will let those wounds heal, but I think it definitely gives my family a good chance in the future and gives my daughter a better chance that I took that sacrifice.”
According to his wife, Michael “definitely wants to record an album and he’s a really good songwriter. We’ll either move to California or New York and be together way more than we are now. He definitely likes to have us around all the time. He embodies what a man should be, a father and a husband. He takes his responsibilities really seriously.”
