Clay Aiken Welcomes Baby Boy

at . Comments

It's a boy for Clay Aiken and Jaymes Foster, the American Idol finalist's best friend who was artificially inseminated earlier this year.

Aiken announced the birth of the baby he fathered on his web site, referring to the baby’s mother as “my dear friend, Jaymes." The child was born on August 8.

There are no photos yet of Clay's son, Parker Foster Aiken, but there is this description of him, courtesy of the popular, former finalist:

“No hyphens. One first name. One middle name. One last name... [he] is healthy, happy, and as loud as his daddy. Mama Jaymes is doing quite well also. … We’ll share more at some point in the future.”
