The Advocate’s 33 Famous Gay Dads with Ricky Martin, Neil Patrick Harris, and Perez Hilton — as well as the rest of our highest-profile gay dads.
Perez Hilton (né Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr.) is the dad of Mario Armando Lavandeira III, who was born via a surrogate mother and an egg donor two days after Valentine’s Day, on February 16, 2013. In May 2015, Mario got a new sister, Mia, who was also born from a surrogate mother. Hilton raises the siblings with the help of his mother and a nanny in New York City.
Currently single, he told the Associated Press that “didn’t want to worry about a relationship of mine interfering with the happiness and well-being of my children,” and “every day is Father’s Day for me.” He also wouldn’t allow baby Mia out in public until she received her two-month shots, because he is “pro-vaccination.” Photos via PerezHilton.com.
