This week’s cover of People magazine, features Clay Aiken and his new son, Parker Foster Aiken, born August 8. The cover also touts the headline, “Yes, I’m gay.” Clay spoke with the magazine about what finally made him come out to the public – a promise he’d made to himself before his child was born.
“It was the first decision I made as a father,” Aiken, 29, tells the upcoming issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. “I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn’t raised that way, and I’m not going to raise a child to do that.”
Clay, a born-again Christian singer, says that he wants his son to be raised in an environment that is “accepting and allowing him to be happy,” and that’s very important to him.
Says Aiken: “I have no idea if he’ll be gay or straight. It’s not something I’ll have anything to do with, or that he’ll have anything to do with. It’s already probably up inside the code there … No matter what the situation you’re in, if you’re raised in a loving environment, that’s the most important thing.”
Parker was born by artificial insemination to Jaymes Foster, and he weighed 6 lbs, 2 oz. People hits newsstands everywhere on Friday.

Nicole Kidman credits the “fertility waters” of a small Australian Outback town for her pregnancy, as well as the pregnancies of 6 other women that swam in the same waters. Nicole told The Australian Women’s Weekly,
“I never thought that I would get pregnant and give birth to a child, but it happened on this movie. Seven babies were conceived out of this film and only one was a boy.” Nicole added, “There is something up there in the Kununurra water because we all went swimming in the waterfalls, so we can call it the fertility waters now.”

The actress, who has been very open about a miscarriage while married to Tom Cruise, says of starting fresh again at 41,
“I never thought that I would get pregnant and give birth to a child, but it happened on this movie. To be given this again is a beautiful thing. To have raised Bella and Connor since I was 25 and now to be able to do it again at 41 … wow!”
There has been much discussion about Nicoles’ slim figure during and immediately after her pregnancy. Nicole, who measures in at 5′ 10 1/2″, told the magazine,
“I’m so lucky I’m so tall, so I carried small. Also, I have to say, I had a birth that I was blessed with, a labor that was very good and a baby that was very good to me in that regard.”
Nicole and husband Keith Urban welcomed daughter Sunday Rose on July 7th.

Kate Moss, 34, and The Kills rocker Jamie Hince, 39, split earlier this month, reportedly over the fact that Kate wants to have another baby and Jamie was reluctant to the idea. A source close to the musician said Jamie regrets this decision and is trying to win Kate back and start a family with her,
“Jamie is upset that Kate is being painted as this party animal who ruined their relationship with her wild ways. The reality is far from that. In fact, they split over her desire to start trying for a baby. Jamie told her he didn’t want to commit to that while things were going so well with his band and he was away on tour so much. But she argued that could remain the case for years and she didn’t want to wait that long. He is ready to back down over the baby issue to save his relationship. He’s sure they can get things back on track.”
Kate has a daughter, Lila Grace, who is just shy of her sixth birthday, with Dazed & Confused editor Jefferson Hack.
