Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright is a father, he announced yesterday. The mother is Lorca Cohen, daughter of Leonard Cohen. She gave birth to Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen on 2 Feb, with Rufus revealing all this via Twitter yesterday. The gay star referred to his partner Jorn Weisbrodt as “deputy dad” in his message.

He tweeted: “Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on 2 Feb 2011 in Los Angeles, California to parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt. The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very, very beautiful”.
