Perez Hilton is now a father to a baby boy!
The openly gay blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira Jr., took to his eponymous blog Wednesday afternoon in a post titled "A Very Important Message from Perez" to share the news "directly from me, right here."
"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.
There was no word of who the birth mother was or the tiny tot's name, or if the child came to be through adoption or surrogacy. But Hilton did share a photo of himself cradling and gazing down at the little guy in what we presume is a hospital room. In an August 2009 interview, the blogger told the Los Angeles Times' Robin Abcarian that he wanted to be a father by age 35 and that he had already investigated surrogates.
