It sounds like congratulations are in order for Tom Ford and his partner Richard Buckley!
According to LOVE magazine, the designer and his longtime love are the proud new parents of a baby boy named Alexander John Buckley Ford, born in Los Angeles, California on September 23.
Just last year Tom, 51, talked about wanting to be a father, saying that if and when the time came he would be sure to guard his family’s privacy.
“I always said I wanted to have children. And as I got a little bit older, Richard, who I live with – we’ve been together 24 years – did not want children. And so I decided not to have children. But if I have children, no one will know about it until the child is born. And no one will ever see the child because I certainly wouldn’t use it as a press tool. If I have a child, you won’t notice that I had a child. Maybe you’ll see it when it’s 18, but I will keep it out of the spotlight.”
