I can’t exactly call this “news,” or act like this is breaking in any way, shape or form. Because that would be a lie. And like Clay Aiken, I don’t lie.

He justified his stance by stating in a People magazine interview that he could not “raise a child to lie or hide things.” Why he continuously refused to tell the media prior is beyond me.
