Clay Aiken, 29, and music producer Jaymes Foster welcomed a son Friday morning, his mother Faye has announced.
According to Faye, Jaymes gave birth to Parker Foster Aiken at the lucky time of 8:08 a.m. on 8/08/08 in North Carolina. Jaymes is Clay’s best friend.
Parker, whose name is his grandmother Faye’s middle name, weighed 6 lbs. 2 oz. and was 19 inches long.
Clay’s mom added that Parker has “dark hair” and that Clay is “smiling from ear-to-ear” about the news.
In May, his rep confirmed that Jaymes was artificially inseminated.
Though they are not romantically linked, Clay and Jaymes plan to raise the child together. The two met when Clay competed on Idol. Jaymes has also produced several of his albums.
