Tom Ford & Richard Buckley Announce The Birth Of Their Son Alexander John Buckley Ford

News just in: Tom Ford has a baby! It's just been announced that the designer has had a son with long-term partner Richard Buckley, who he's been in a relationship with for the past 25 years. LOVE Magazine broke the news on Twitter and a picture of a birth announcement is doing the rounds, suggesting that Alexander John Buckley Ford was born in Los Angeles on September 23rd, 2012. Aw!

Tom Ford and Richard Buckley Announce The Birth Of Their Son Alexander John Buckley Ford

Shock of the day / month / year? Yes. But we should hardly be surprised considering the 51-year-old Mr Ford is notoriously private and recently said he would keep any offspring he has a secret. 'I always said I wanted to have children,' he told New York Magazine. '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.' We can't wait to see the inevitably dapper Alexander gracing the cover of Vogue Paris in eighteen years...

The who's who of fashion have flocked to Twitter to send their congratulations to the couple and Grazia joins them in saying: Alexander Ford, welcome to the world!
