Clay Aiken: I'm Gay (People Magazine Cover)

American Idol favorite Clay Aiken has finally come out as a gay man.

“Yes, I’m gay,” he tells People. “I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things.”

The 29-year-old Idol alum is on the mag’s cover with newborn son Parker.

In May, it was announced that Clay had given his sperm by artificial insemination to pal Jaymes Foster, sister of David Foster and Clay’s producer.

In July 2006, boybander Lance Bass also appeared on the cover of People with his own “I’M GAY” issue.

Best wishes to Clay and his bundle of joy Parker!

    Honesty is always best. I don’t know why everyone can’t get that. Good for him for FINALLY being honest.

    Awww, Parker is adorable!

    I always have found it amusing that those who “come out” of the closet are those who were never really in the closet to begin with.

    Having said that, I commend Clay for his choice to come clean about his sexuality and I wish him the best as he raises his new son!

    Bet he will be a good father cuz he wants to be honest about his life.
    He will teach his son to accept himself as he is and not try to be whom others expect him to be. Bravo to Clay!
