Rufus Wainwright becomes a dad

Rufus Wainwright has become a dad for the first time.

The openly gay singer/songwriter took to his website to announce the happy news. 

“Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011 in Los Angeles, California to parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt,” he wrote. “The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very, very beautiful."

Lorca Cohen is the daughter of legendary musician Leonard Cohen while Weisbrodt is Wainwright’s long-term partner.
