On Wednesday, Perez Hilton announced on his website that he was the proud father of a baby boy that was just born. Apparently he had been planning this for a while because it came out of nowhere…but babies take 9 months!

Perez released a statement and photo of him holding the baby (which I’ve included below). He’s gone through quite the transformation over the past year. From overweight mean gossip queen to a fit not-so-mean gossip queen… and now I guess a father? As mean as he has been in the past, I personally feel it’s nice to see people change in a positive way and I can only imagine how having a child will change his life even more.

Check out the photo of Perez and his baby below as well as the statement he released about the news.

“Dear Friends,
I want you to hear this 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.

Thank YOU for welcoming PerezHilton.com into your homes, offices, classrooms, cell phones and wherever else you may read my five websites.

And thank you for welcoming ME into your lives!

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.

With love,

Perez”
