Clay Aiken is on the cover of this week’s People holding his adorable new baby son.

42531230 Clay Aiken acknowledges he's GAY! (yawn)But that’s not the big news.

The "American Idol" star also comes out on the cover, emblazoned with the words YES, I’M GAY.

When I first saw this cover on, I thought this was just another one of Perez’s  snarky Photoshop tricks. But apparently, it’s really true.

A rep for People neither confirmed nor denied the cover’s accuracy, MTV News reports. "We can confirm that Clay Aiken and his son are featured on the next issue of People," the rep said. The whole enchilada story will go up today on the mag’s Web site.

If it’s true, then congrats on both counts, Clay. But forgive us if we’re not like, totally, shocked and stunned.
