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.”
See you in 2030, Alexander!
UPDATE: We now have the official birth announcement, which states that Alexander was born September 23, 2012, making him Libra, cusp Virgo, if you’re into that kind of thing (which Ford most definitely is). Congrats to the new dads!
