Tom Ford Welcomes His First Child

Fashion designer and movie director Tom Ford, 51, and his longtime partner Richard Buckley, 64, have welcomed their first child, son Alexander John Buckley Ford. Congratulations!!!

From Styleite.
LOVE magazine broke the happy news of the birth on Twitter this morning. Ford and Buckley, who is himself a journalist and fashion editor, have been together 25 years. The designer talked about wanting kids in an interview with Time Out Hong Kong just last year: 
“I always said I wanted to have children. And as I got a little bit older, Richard, who I live with – we’ve been together 24 years – did not want children. And so I decided not to have children. But if I have children, no one will know about it until the child is born. And no one will ever see the child because I certainly wouldn’t use it as a press tool. If I have a child, you won’t notice that I had a child. Maybe you’ll see it when it’s 18, but I will keep it out of the spotlight.”
