Clay Aiken's a Daddy

Jaymes Foster, the 50-something longtime friend and producer of Clay Aiken, has given birth to a baby who was conceived via artificial insemination using Clay's little swimmers.

The baby, son Parker Foster Aiken, was born early this morning in North Carolina. Clay was on-hand for the event, as the odd couple (who are platonic friends, obvs) plan to raise the kiddo together.

Mother and baby -- who is reportedly dark-haired, not a red-head -- are doing well.

Congrats, kids!
