People cover shows Clay Aiken: ‘Yes, I’m gay’; Lindsay Lohan ‘confirms’ to radio show

National Coming Out Day isn’t until Oct. 11, but two of Hollywood’s most-rumored stars — Clay Aiken and Lindsay Lohan — may be observing that rite of passage early today.

Internet reports beginning to circulate now feature a People magazine cover with an October date showing Aiken holding his newborn son, Parker Foster Aiken, underneath the headline “Yes, I’m gay: The ‘Idol’ star opens up about his emotional decision to come out.”

“I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things,” he’s quoted as saying on the cover.

Representatives from People have not yet returned calls to the Sun-Times. A statement from the magazine, however, was posted at mtv.com, saying only: “We can confirm that Clay Aiken and his son are featured on the next issue of People. For the complete story, please visit http://www.people.com at 7 a.m. [Wednesday].”

Rumors about Aiken’s sexuality have abounded since the singer was runner-up on the second season of “American Idol.” He’s rebuffed direct inquiries by everyone from Kelly Ripa to Diane Sawyer about the topic. Comedian Kathy Griffin habitually refers to him on her reality show in her routines as The Gayken.

Aiken, 29, previously told People: “What do you say [to the question of whether I’m gay]? … It’s like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, ‘Did you do this?’ Well, it didn’t matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. … People are going to believe what they want.”

Aiken just rejoined the cast of “Spamalot” on Broadway, in a run scheduled through Jan. 4.

In other closet-opening news, many online outlets are reporting that Lindsay Lohan has “confirmed” a lesbian relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson.

Lohan and Ronson rarely have been seen apart for several months, and they too have dodged direct questions about the nature of their relationship.

But Lohan called into the Los Angeles-based radio show “Loveline” last night to comment on the recent fatal plane crash that injured former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and DJ AM. Host Ted Stryker asked Lohan how long she and Lohan had been “going out.”

“Like two years? One year? Five months, two months?” he asked.

Lohan chuckled, then said, “A long, a very long time.”

Stryker ended the conversation by saying, “Well, I hope you stay together. You are a very lovely looking couple.” Lohan thanked him.

Confirmation, it seems, is in the eye (or ear) of the beholder.

Clay Aiken’s baby mama has popped! I am soooo totally surprised it wasn’t with the preg. man on Oprah!

Aiken’s mother told local Raleigh, N.C. TV station that the “American Idol” runner-up was now the proud papa of a bouncing baby boy named Parker Foster Aiken.

Aiken’s BFF, 50-year-old record producer Jaymes Foster, gave birth at 8:08 AM this morning in an “undisclosed location.”

Aiken’s mother Faye said the dark-haired Parker weighed in at 6 lbs. 2 oz and was 19″ long. She says her son is “smiling from ear-to-ear.”

Mom, dad and baby all are doing fine, according to Faye.

Aiken and Foster, who met when Clay appeared on “A.I.,” will raise their spawn together.

CONGRATULATIONS!
