Here’s one odd celebrity story for you.

American Idol Season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken is once again under the spotlight after gossips came out that he and long-time friend Jaymes Foster, sibling of David Foster  and record producer, are expecting a baby. What’s so odd, or newsworthy about this? Well, for one Jaymes Foster is a woman, and we all know Clay to be more on the softy side. Second, Jaymes is 50 years old. Third, the pregnancy came about via artificial insemination. If that’s not buzz-worthy enough for you, then I don’t know what is.

A close friend to the two, Eliza Roberts explains: “People should understand: It’s not like he’s the donor and she’s the surrogate. These are two people who have made a very loving decision to have a baby together.”

Many of Aiken’s contemporaries and co-contestants in American Idol alumni have expressed support and congratulatory remarks for his decision. As early as their AI tour, Aiken in various occasions have already expressed his desire to become a dad.

“I remember him saying, ‘I can’t wait to be a dad and have a family and have my own kids,’” recalls Carmen Rasmusen, an Idol alumna. “He really was looking forward to being a father, even five years ago. I thought it was so cute that that was a priority for him.”

The expecting parents confirmed that the baby is due August. Meanwhile some not-so-supportive quarters have started calling the unborn, “Faiken”… Too early for name-calling, don’t you think?
