Blogger Perez Hilton has become a father for the first time.
Perez Hilton – real name Mario Lavandeira Jr - has become a father for the first time, taking to his blog on Wednesday afternoon to share the great news with his readers. “I am ready to announce that earlier this month I was blessed with the birth of my first child, a beautiful and healthy baby boy — with lots of hair on his tiny head. My family is overjoyed at this newest and most cherished addition,” the 34-year-old wrote, to a wave of congratulatory messages from fans.
Unfortunately for us, further details are scarce, with no word on who the birth mother is, or the baby’s name – and he’s supposed to be the king of gossip? To be fair to Perez, he did share a photograph of himself cradling and gazing down at the baby boy in what appears to be a hospital delivery room.
The news doesn’t come as a huge surprise, given Hilton was snapped shopping for baby clothes in West Hollywood in January, according to the Daily Mail. Back in 2009, he told the Los Angeles Times’ journalist Robin Abcarian that he wanted to be a father by the age of 35 and had already looked into surrogates. He turns 35-year-old in less than one month.
The Miami-native became a household name in 2004 when he snapped into a previously unexplored world of internet gossip and online celeb snaps. His snarky manner was a hit with readers and the website reportedly pulls in 300 million page hits a month.
