Clay Aiken Impregnates Someone!
Posted May 29th 2008 12:28PM by TMZ Staff
TMZ has learned Clay Aiken is going to be a daddy. In case you didn't process that, Clay Aiken is going to be a daddy.
Here's what we know. 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 50-year-old Foster, who produced several Aiken CDs, is due in August. She's the sister of record mogul David Foster. She divorced a few years back and has no kids. 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.
No immediate word from Aiken's rep.
My initial reaction was "Ewwwww!"
I think the guy has a great voice, although Ken and I voted for Ruben that year on "American Idol." I know he has a lot of fans (Don't they call them "Claymates?" Again...Ewwwww!) but it seems like he got a little freaky after AI. The whole weird hair thing, and his prima donna attitude with Kelly Ripa on "Regis and Kelly." Now this. A sperm donor.
