We have good news. Strike that—we have unbelievably good news. What's the difference? Unbelievably good news is good news you once thought impossible—like a live-feed from Mars, or Robert Downey Jr. dominating the summer box office. Or Clay Aiken becoming a dad. TMZ reports:
Multiple sources tell us the mother is Jaymes Foster, a record producer and Clay's best friend. He lives at her home when he's in L.A.
We're told Foster, who produced several Aiken CDs, is due in August. She's the sister of record mogul David Foster. We're told she's in her late 40's, though we could not confirm her exact age. Aiken is 29.
We're told Foster was artificially inseminated. But Clay is a lot more than sperm — we're told he will have an active role in raising the child.
We'll now allot you the time necessary to re-read the above until it fully sinks in—plus overcome any contact morning-sickness it may have elicited—before issuing a heartfelt "Hooray!" for the most non-traditional domestic arrangement to cross our radar since learning of the Oprah-confounding Pregnant Man of Oregon. Clearly, some Greater Force must have overheard us mumbling, "More Clay? Yes, please!" while rifling recently through the iTunes stacks, and took our humble petition further than we'd ever hoped or dreamed. There is no doubt about it: Clay Aiken's impending fatherhood shakes our ovaries a thousand different ways!
