Aiken, also a new father, revealed this information to People magazine. He is featured on the upcoming issue with his son, Parker Foster Aiken, to friend Jaymes Foster

"I cannot raise a child to lie or hide things," he told People.

Aiken, who's currently starring on Broadway in "Spamalot," has continuously been followed by rumors about his sexuality, though he has kept his private life quiet until now.

I think we knew it all along. What do you think about gay dad, Clay?
