Kaylin Hedges never expected the surprises she would get when she stepped in to audition for American Idol season 23. Let alone the Platinum Ticket, the young singer wasn’t even hoping for the golden ticket. And when her dad made a surprise appearance, her happiness knew no bounds.

American Idol: Who Are Kaylin Hedges Parents?

Kaylin Hedges was born to her parents, Hailey and Jeffrey Hedges. They’ve been her number-one fans and biggest supporters since day one. However, her military dad was mostly absent from her life while she was growing up. Nevertheless, she loved him to the moon and even dedicated her American Idol audition song “I’m Already There” to him.

“It’s just a song that sort of explains everything that has happened with us being so far away,” she said at the time. “I just relate to it a lot.”

Surprisingly, after Kaylin wowed the judges, Katy Perry queued up a surprise video message from her dad. I have nothing but pride and admiration for you. I know I’ve missed lots of holidays and birthdays and major life events for you, but I just want you to know that no matter where I am, I’m already there, so take a look around,” Jeffrey said before the camera panned to him walking onto the stage.

Kaylin then rushed to him and enveloped him in her emotional embrace. She also then ran out of the room to get her mother, who had no idea her husband had made the trip.

The family of three united after a long time on American Idol season 23.
