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."

Amazing!

We couldn't be more thrilled for you all!

Congratulations!

    Why are there three names? I'm all for gays having children but I'm not understanding the technicalities?



  2. 2

    Gawd help that poor kid…being raised by a couple of E-Tards !



  3. 3

    Viva has two daddies …..



  4. 4

    Way to miss the mark Perez. Lorca is Leonard Cohen's daughter making this a baby part of a Canadian dynasty. How could you not mention that?

    Rufus is my musical idol. Congrats to them all!

    This is why children need a MOTHER AND A FATHER.

    wonder which one will show her how to use a tampon??

    Re: YRUFATT – oh please, my mother never showed or told me how to use a tampon, among other things, and im getting along just fine.

    many congrats to them c:

    HOW DO TWO MEN RAISE A DAUGHTER? Every child needs a mother, it's nature.

    "oh please, my mother never showed or told me how to use a tampon, among other things, and im getting along just fine. "

    You're getting along fine because you HAD a mother. This child has none. This is not right. What's wrong with you people?

    Re: xhollax – Uuum, not that it matters, but this baby does have a mother. Seems as though they are going to co parent. Why release the birth moms name and give the baby the moms last name if it was strictly suragacy…

    All you need is love. Anyone who has told you different has done a size giant disservice to you.

    What a child needs is loving adults to care for them. Period. Gender is not important. I know plenty of same sex couples — both male and female — raising wonderful children who are assets to society.

    Re: Chicklette – Yeah, right . . .



  13. 13

    Yeah like People who have grown up with a mother and father are totally more stable…LOL…Having a mother and father doesn't mean shit..



  14. 14

    is every one in hollywood gay now or something?



  15. 15

    Re: love2hateperezite – YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  16. 16

    WHO ARE THEY?



  17. 17

    Re: No Patience – Agreed! This kid gets THREE parents to love her not to mention there is a whole circle of friends and family that will be there for her. I don't think Viva will be lacking someone to show her how to do -anything- in her life. Personally I am very excited for her arrival and for her parents.

    Rufus gave his daughter his late mother's name (Kate McGarrible) - that is moving. Although I prefer Katherine to Kate, hope he calls her that in everyday life. That girl will have a mother + an extended family as the McGarrigle family is very close, with aunts Anna and Jane. Welcome to this wonderful world Katherine.

    The boyfriend is kinda hot. A rhinoplasty might help, though.

    "Yeah like People who have grown up with a mother and father are totally more stable…LOL"

    Statistically they are



  21. 21

    Re: xhollax – uh what statistics you douchebag? I love how you people against anything gay are running out of solid arguments



  22. 22

    wow. A Child of the Wainrights and Cohens…. that's pretty awesome.
