NEW YORK – Clay Aiken is reportedly going to be a father.
The mother is Aiken's 40-something best friend Jaymes Foster — a record producer whose L.A. home he stays at when he is in town, TMZ.com reported.
Due in late August, Foster divorced a few years back and does not have kids, the Web site reported. She has produced several of the 29-year-old "American Idol" star's CDs.
Foster was artificially inseminated, but Clay will reportedly play an active role in raising the child, according to TMZ.com.
