Clay Aiken’s A Doting Dad

December 2nd, 2008 // 8 Comments

Clay Aiken, looking disturbingly like some sort of redheaded starlet from the 50s in his Spam-A-Lot wig, made an appearance on the disaster we now refer to as Rosie Live on Thanksgiving Eve. That was Rosie ODonnell’s attempt to bring back the variety show, and by all accounts (including her own), it sank like Mary Jo Kopechne.

As for Clay, he recently let everyone know that he is a complete hands-on dad with his son Parker, 3 1/2 months. Aiken, who finally came out in Sept. to no one’s shock and awe, had his son with longtime friend Jaymes Foster.

“It was probably a week before [the baby's mother] had to change a diaper at all!” he said. “I’m trying my best to be the one who doesn’t always let him get what he wants, but he own us.”

And get this, Aiken was actually fearful that he’d be “booed off the stage” when he made his return to Broadway after coming out as a gay dad. Don’t you get booed off the stage on Broadway if you’re NOT gay?

Check out all the photos of Clay Aiken in the gallery.

    He makes sure he doesn’t always get what he wants? At 3 1/2 months he’s making unreasonable demands?

    You have to watch the clip to see exactly what he said and how he said it. The rest of the quote was that he was still too little to be worrying about that stuff and the baby owns them! Clearly he is a loving, doting father!!

    Most people worry if they are spoiling a baby or holding the baby too much. These are normal thoughts for first time parents.

    Got to give him props…he’s one of the good guys. That baby is one lucky kid…two parents who actually WANTED him and love him. Cool.

    And Clay does a lot of work for special needs kids and other charities, including raising quite a bit of money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. His current auctions are astoundingly lucrative.

    Can’t help it…I think he’s a good dude.:-)

    Is that a wig on his head?

    I’ve seen Spamalot, with different actors playing Sir Robin. They all wear that same wig, so it’s part of the costume.
