2008 has been a big year for Clay Aiken, between his welcoming son Parker, now 4 1/2 months, in August, and coming out to People magazine. Clay spoke to People again about his year, his plans for the future, and what he feels is most important in his life.
“At the end of the day, Parker is the most important thing of the year, and of my life, without question. Having a son and that type of responsibility is obviously going to be something that I remember forever.”

As for his coming out, Clay says that, while there has been negative attention, he has also been “very impressed and my heart has been thoroughly warmed to find people very supportive.”
The 30-year-old singer plans to be return to being a full-time parent with Parker’s mom, Jaymes Foster, in North Carolina in January, after his run on Broadway’s Spamalot comes to a close.
“I want to spend time with Parker. He’s still uber-dependent,” Aiken says, laughing. “I’m ready for him to start talking. I’m ready for a little action!”
He also plans to return to his singing roots, saying,
“We’ll take a little bit of time, we’re not quitting or anything, we’re just gonna take it slow for a month or so and recollect once I get back,” he says. “I may never have any free time once Parker starts walking and talking!”
