(Newser) – Clay Aiken is going to be a father, reports. The 29-year-old impregnated friend Jaymes Foster, 50, through artificial insemination. She is due in August, and Aiken plans to play an active role in raising the child, the site says. Foster was executive producer of Aiken's last album, and he lives with her when he's in LA. Rumors have long swirled about Aiken's sexual orientation, but the "American Idol" vet has never discussed it publicly.
