The King of celebrity gossip, Perez Hilton, has turned his blabbermouthing on himself – that’s because he’s recently become a father! Congrats Perez!

The man behind the renowned blog, aptly decided to post the news of his new boy on there, in a statement which read: “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.” After thanking all of his readers for reading the site (we guess as good a time as any to reiterate something like that), Hilton went on “I am so humbled to welcome this little man into my life. And I am honored and ready for the challenge of guiding him through his.” Aww, good stuff.

Congratulations Perez!

The thing about Hilton is that, although he does love a good gossip, he’s rarely mean about those he’s writing about, and indeed has made a great many friends from his blog. This meant quite the outpouring of congratulations on Twitter was quite something. His namesake Paris Hilton wrote “Congratulations @PerezHilton on your new son. Such exciting news, so happy for you! Love Paris,” with Jenny McCarthy writing “Welcome to the club Perez Hilton Sooo happy for u! #babyperez” They were just two of hundreds of well-wishers.
