Such wonderful, happy news!
Although there have been rumors, Rufus Wainwright confirmed today via his official website that he and his fiance, Jorn Weisbrodt, have become parents to a baby girl!
According to the press release:
Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011 in Los Angeles, California to proud parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt. The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very very beautiful.
Daddy #1 would like to offer everyone a digital cigar and welcome the little lady in with a French phrase from his favorite folk song, A La Claire Fontaine : "Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai."
We couldn't be more thrilled for you all!
