(LOS ANGELES) -- It’s a boy for celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
The 34-year-old announced on his website Wednesday that he is a new dad to a baby boy. Hilton, whose legal name is Mario Lavandeira, had not previously revealed that he was expecting a child and did not share any information about the birth or the little guy’s name.
“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!” the openly gay blogger wrote on his website Wednesday.
“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.”
While Hilton has had his fair share of celebrity feuds, stars rushed to Twitter to share their congratulations for the new daddy on Twitter.
Instead of sending gifts, the blogger asked his followers to donate to VH1′s Save the Music Foundation and the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.
PerezHilton.com was launched in 2004 and the new father now has five blogs where he dishes celebrity gossip.
