According to TMZ, Clay Aiken is going to be a FATHER.
TMZ is reporting that Clay's late-fortysomething producer/roommate/"best friend" Jaymes Foster-Levy (yes, Jaymes is a woman, in case you were confused) was successfully artificially inseminated with Clay's sperm, and is now carrying Clay's baby.
I honestly don't have much more to add here. I'm as speechless as Simon Cowell during Fantasia's recent performance.
But a rep for David Foster, Jaymes' famous producer brother, is a little less tongue-tied. The rep has confirmed TMZ's earlier report in a statement to The Insider: "[Jaymes] looks great, glowing, and very happy. She and Clay have been good friends for a long time."
Is this the "measure of a man" Clay was singing about? Hmmmm.
Maybe this song ought to be Clay's next single.
