    • 2008, "The Most Unlikely Dads of the Year", Newsweek, 31 May 2008:
      Is anybody really ever ready for fatherhood? Who knows, but it's safe to say nobody was ready for this: Clay Aiken is going to be a dad. [] But don't get jealous, Claymates. Aiken's paternity was accomplished via artificial insemination, so he's still on the market (though he plans to be involved in the baby's life, friends say).
