Perez Hilton introduces son Mario Armando Lavandeira, III

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has revealed the first photos of his son Mario Armando Lavandeira III.

Hilton revealed the exciting news that he would be a first-time father last month, but did not share the details as to who his surrogate was, what the baby’s name is or any pictures of his bouncing baby boy.

Now, the openly gay blogger opens up about being a first-time father with the LA Times.

The 34-year-old proud father shares the changes he feels now that he’s older, noting, "I don't have to give people nasty nicknames anymore. I don't have to say people are stupid, or people are fat, or people are ugly. I don't need to draw inappropriate things on photos or out people. I can still be sassy and fun and do my job."

Mario was born one month early after his surrogate's water broke and had labor induced. He weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces at the time of birth. Hilton, along with his mother and sister, took a flight and arrived just in time for the birth. “He waited for Daddy,” Hilton notes.

"I knew it was going to happen this way,” Hilton says of single fatherhood. “Boyfriends and husbands may come and go, but kids are forever. I didn't want to keep waiting."
