Congratulations to him for finally confirming what a lot of people already knew.


From CNN.com:

New dad Clay Aiken comes out of closet

* Story Highlights
* "American Idol" runner-up and infant son are on new People cover
* "I cannot raise a child to lie or hide things," Aiken says
* Aiken made his debut on Broadway in "Spamalot"

NEW YORK (AP) -- Clay Aiken is finally confirming what many people suspected: He's gay.

The cover of the latest People magazine shows Aiken holding his infant son, Parker Foster Aiken, with the headline: "Yes, I'm Gay." The cover also has the quote: "I cannot raise a child to lie or hide things."

The magazine has an interview with Aiken and confirmed that he was on the cover but refused to release the article until Wednesday.

The baby's mother is Aiken's friend and record producer Jaymes Foster.

Aiken, who gained fame as the runner-up on "American Idol" in 2003, rarely addressed the frequent rumors about his sexuality. He said two years ago, "I don't really feel like I have anybody to answer to but myself and God and the people I love."

The multiplatinum singer recently released the CD "On My Way Here" and made his Broadway debut this spring in "Monty Python's Spamalot."
