‘American Idol’ Alum Quigley Goode Reveals Her Newborn Son Has COVID-19: ‘This Has Been a Total Shock’

American Idol alum Quigley Goode shared on Sunday (Oct. 4) that her newborn son had been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

“Max tested positive for COVID-19 early Saturday am,” she wrote alongside a number of pictures with the baby in the hospital. “We took him into the ER after he was running a fever in the middle of the night. We had confirmation that he was exposed from direct contact with a medical professional who had cared for him earlier in the week.”

The singer’s message continued: “This has been a total shock to us. I am currently quarantining with baby Max in the PICU. They are treating me as if I have been exposed and are likely positive as well, although I am showing no symptoms yet. Please send good energy to our little bub so he recovers fast. Not sure what happens next from here… but I expect to be offline for a while as we recover. Love, Quigs.”

In 2009, Goode auditioned for American Idol’s eighth season with a cover of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles.” Under her given name, Casey Carlson, she made it to the Top 36 before being eliminated with a performance of The Police’s “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.”

Following her elimination from the show, Goode changed her name to “Quigley” and began releasing music independently, with her debut EP Initium dropping in 2015.
