Weeks after announcing he'd become a first-time dad, Perez Hilton is formally introducing his son, Mario Armando Lavandeira III.

The celebrity blogger, multimedia entrepreneur and actor, who will turn 35 on March 23, spoke at length to The Los Angeles Times about his decision to become a single father.

"I knew it was going to happen this way because boyfriends and husbands may come and go, but kids are forever," Perez, who says he has had one serious relationship in the past five years, told the publication. "I didn't want to keep waiting."

Prior to his big revelation in February, Perez says only his mother, sister, lawyer and business manager knew that he'd found an egg donor and a surrogate in 2012. Mario Armando Lavandeira III was born on Feb. 16, exactly one month ahead of his March 16 due date.

Take a look at some photos of Perez and Mario Armando Lavandeira III, originally shared on his website:
