Baby Parker’s mom says Aiken has a knack for diaper duty and soothing their newborn. Clay Aiken‘s best friend – and the mother of their 7-week-old son Parker – music producer Jaymes Foster, 50, chatted with during the magazine’s photo shoot at Aiken’s home in North Carolina, where Foster is currently staying.
While Aiken tended to Parker, who was conceived via in vitro fertilization, Foster dished about her pregnancy, being an older mom.
Who is Clay Aiken’s baby mother, Jaymes Foster?
Jaymes Foster is a music producer and television host. She served as executive producer of her brother’s Christmas Album, which she worked on with David Foster, the composer and producer.
She’s collaborated on numerous Aiken records throughout her career, usually in an executive role. He was also a judge on the singing competition series Popstars and Popstars 2. She made headlines in 2008 when it became known that she was expecting Clay Aiken’s baby, via IVF.
What was their relationship before Jaymes Foster had Clay Aiken’s baby?
“We adore and deeply care for each other as close friends,” Foster said in a People interview seven weeks after giving birth to her and Clay’s kid.
The pair first met while he was on American Idol. She has been involved in the production of and/or executive producing several of his records, including A Thousand Different Ways (2006) and On My Way Here (2008).
She also described Aiken as a “wonderful parent”. Foster told WRAL FM’s Raleigh in 2010, when Parker was four weeks old, that he began to become unusually sick. Fortunately, it vanished quickly.
Do they still co-parent?
People magazine describes her as “Clay Aiken’s closest friend” in its article. Though they are not romantically involved, Clay and Jaymes intended to parent their child Parker together, according to reports. However, according to an unnamed source, “accord” had “deteriorated over the past several years” by 2014 – the year of Clay Aiken’s first congressional campaign – after being quoted by IB Times in 2014.
Parker Foster Aiken, born August 8, 2008 in Raleigh, North Carolina, is now 13 years old. It’s uncertain if he’s been co-parented with his parents or not.
