While Jann Wenner and his wife have three kids already, the Rolling Stone and Us Weekly publisher is apparently now having a baby with his longtime boyfriend, too, art dealer/model/whatever Matt Nye. [Congrats, fellas!]
Since there are like five senior execs at Us who are expecting kids, too, magazine staffers initially speculated the mercurial Wenner was just planning to steal the cutest baby and fire the parent, but now it turns out they're having it the old fashioned way: with a surrogate. [Due in August, btw.]
But here's my question: Gawker said that, duh, the kid'll have Matt's genes, since Wenner's already propagated his own DNA. But, barring some big announcement or an insemination party invite, is it cool to ask gay dads-to-be about their sperm deployment decisions? [Of course, if he looks like Gawker's photoshop mockup, the question'll be moot.]
Gawker's other gaffe--a reader poll to name the kid--is redundant: if it's a boy, he's obviously gonna be named Ennis.
Name Jann's Kid! [gawker]
