Former "American Idol" Clay Aiken is a daddy now and his fans are responding to the news by standing by their man. After all, they are Claymates.
Clay, 29, and his best friend, producer Jaymes Foster, welcomed a baby boy into the world recently in Clay's home state of North Carolina.
The baby, who weighed in at 6 pounds, 2 ounces and has dark hair, is named Parker Foster Aiken.
Although the Claymates are in favor of their favorite crooner becoming a father, there are many non-Clay fans that don't believe the singer should be a dad.
According to a recent survey, it appears Clay has more fans than naysayers. While Clay and his best friend Jaymes plan on raising the baby together, the birth of Parker has stirred the long-asked question about Clay's sexuality.
While Clay refuses to discuss his sexuality with the media, his fans only seem to care about his singing and now his new baby. "I love Clay no matter what and I can't wait to see pictures of his baby," one fan said.
