Singer Clay Aiken is confirming to the world: he's gay.
Aiken chose to let the cat out of the bag in the next issue of People magazine, which hits newsstands Tuesday. The magazine's cover shows Aiken holding his infant son, Parker Foster Aiken, with the headline:
"Yes, I'm Gay". The cover also quotes Aiken saying he "cannot raise a child to lie or hide things."
Parker's surrogate mother is Aiken's friend and record producer Jaymes Foster.
