    A little better article, from Popeater.com:
    Clay Aiken Is a Dad. Yep.
    AP
    Posted 8-8-08

    RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 8) - Former "American Idol" runner-up Clay Aiken is a father.
    The 29-year-old crooner from Raleigh announced the birth of Parker Foster Aiken on his Web site's blog Friday

    "No hyphens. One first name," he wrote. "One middle name. One last name."

    Aiken's mother, Faye, told Raleigh TV station WRAL the child was born in North Carolina.

    ...

    The baby's mother is Jaymes Foster, Aiken's friend and record producer whom he met while performing on "American Idol." Their son was born at 8:08 a.m. Friday, and weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces and was 19 inches long, according to the statement on the Web site.

    "The little man is healthy, happy, and as loud as his daddy," Aiken wrote. "Mama Jaymes is doing quite well also."

    The best one I've seen so far, aside from Clay's own blog, is this one from WRAL.com (Raleigh):
    Clay Aiken becomes a father :: WRAL.com

    Congratulations to Clay. He is going to be a wonderful father.

    I have to say that as much as I love Clay, this did not help the "gay" rumors at all. The tabloids are going to run wild with this
    I can only please one person a day, today is not your day and tomorrow doesn't look good either

    Clay pays about as much attention to tabloids as they deserve, which is none. If you believe tabloids you deserve to be lied to.

    Absolutely. Just like the National Enquirer and John Edwards.

    Blanket statements are so fun.

    BarefootDyke, according to Chinese tradition, that is a VERY auspicious birth day and time!

    If some men who cheat on their wives wear white socks, does that mean that all men who wear white socks are cheaters?

    If tabloids tell a hundred lies and rumors a week and some of it turns out to be true, does that mean that we should assume that they are a reliable source of news?

    Of course not.

    No -- nor does it mean one must consider them always to be unreliable. What it means (since you kindly asked my opinion ), is that you should evaluate their stories on an individual basis, as do most intelligent news consumers.

    I hope you don't get all of your news from Clay's site -- but who knows, maybe he will start covering the presidential race in his spare time

    Re: Clay Aiken

    Guys, I'm not saying that I believe the rumors. I have gone on record stating that I could care less what he does in his sex life. I love him, his voice, his kindness etc. I even danced to one of his songs on my wedding day. I'm just saying that people that were on the fence about him may believe these stupid rumors.
