Perez Hilton becomes a father for the second time

By Will Stroude

Perez Hilton has revealed that he has become a father for the second time.

The blogger turned TV personality shared the news on his website, saying he was “overjoyed” by the new addition to his family.


In a statement, the 37-year-old said: “It is with great pride and relief that I can finally announce: I am a dad again!

“The road to this birth has been a difficult journey, quite different from the first time, and my son and I are overjoyed at this happy and healthy addition to our family.

“Every child is a blessing and this Mother’s Day was extra blessed for me and my mother!”

“From my family to yours, much love! Perez.”

Despite not revealing his new baby’s name or sex, Hilton did share a picture of him holding the newborn’s foot, adding on Facebook: “‘Family is everything to me! This is what I dreamed of and live for!”

The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate’s first child, Mario Armando Lavandeira III, was conceived via a donor egg and a surrogate mother, whose identity he has not revealed.

Hilton courted almost constant controversy during his time on CBB last year, eventually being labelled and “an embarrassment to the gay community” by fellow housemate and Drag Race star Michelle Visage.

Ofcom revealed in March that they received over 1200 complaints about his stay in the house – click here to find out more.
