Clay Aiken's baby mama, Jaymes Foster, has given birth!
Aiken's mother told a local Raleigh, N.C., TV station that the American Idol runner-up is the proud papa of a baby boy named Parker Foster Aiken.
Jaymes Foster, Clay's 50-year-old record producer BFF, who he impregnated via artificial insemination, gave birth at 8:08 a.m. today - 08/08/08!
Aiken's mother, Faye, said the dark-haired Parker weighs 6 lbs., 2 oz., and is 19" long. She says Clay is "smiling from ear-to-ear" over this.
Mom, dad and baby all are doing fine. Aiken, 29, announced they were expecting - or at least it was revealed - around the end of May.
Clay Aiken and Jaymes Foster, who met when the former starred on American Idol in 2003, will reportedly raise their little spawn together.
UPDATE: Clay Aiken has posted this his official fan site: "HE'S HERE! My dear friend, Jaymes, and I are so excited to announce the birth of Parker Foster Aiken (No hyphens. One first name. One middle name. One last name.) Parker, whose name is his grandmother Faye's middle name, weighed 6 lbs., 2 oz. and was 19 inches long. He was born at 8:08 a.m. Wow ... 8:08 ... 08/08/08. The little man is healthy, happy, and as loud as his daddy. Mama Jaymes is doing quite well also."
