Tom Ford is a father!
The designer and his longtime boyfriend, Richard Buckley, have welcomed a son into the world. LOVE and Cathy Horyn each tweeted the news this morning, including the baby's name: Alexander John Buckley Ford.
With a name like that, this kid could've been a Founding Father.
Alexander John is the first child for the couple, who have been together for 25 years. Ford has discussed his desire for children for quite some time, telling Fern Mallis just this year, "I'd better get busy [with having a baby] soon because I still want to be able to pick them up."
Now baby makes three... and totally ups the odds that Ford will be the next designer to bring us a luxury baby line.
In related news, this brings new meaning to the blog TomFordIsMyDad (if you haven't visited it, do it now). Think there's a lawsuit on the horizon over false claims?
Congrats to the happy couple!
UPDATE: Based on a formal birth announcement card circulating online, it looks like lil' Alex was born on September 23. Almost one month old already!
