Perez Hilton, New Dad, Gets Swamped With Twitter Love As Celebs Send Their Well-Wishes (TWEETS)

This week, Perez Hilton stunned the world when he announced his entry into daddyhood.

Accompanying a photo of the celeb blogger and his newborn son, Hilton wrote on his website Wednesday: "I am ready to announce that earlier this month I was blessed with the birth of my first child, a beautiful and healthy baby boy -- with lots of hair on his tiny head!"

Since his announcement, Hilton has been swamped with plenty of Twitter love as many take to the social media site to offer their congratulations.

Hilton may be oft-criticized for being a misogynist who possesses a penchant for embarrassing the rich and famous, but that hasn't stopped many celebs from jumping on the congratulatory bandwagon:

In response to all the love, Hilton admitted that he "can't stop crying."

"Every time someone Tweets me 'Congrats Dad' or 'Daddy' the tears just start streaming," he said in a tweet on Tuesday night.

The new papa had also said in an earlier tweet that he hopes well-wishers will donate money to the VH1 Save the Music Foundation or the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) in lieu of baby gifts.
