Rufus Wainwright and Jorn WeisbrodtCanadian singer Rufus Wainwright announced last Friday that he is the proud father of new baby girl Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen.

Cohen? Yes, as in legendary crooner Leonard Cohen, daughter Lorca was the mother of the baby for Wainwright and his fiancé, Jorn Weisbrodt.

"Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011 in Los Angeles, California to proud parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt. Lorca Cohen is the mother of the baby and Rufus Wainwright is the father." said a statement on Wainwright's website.

"The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very, very beautiful. Daddy #1 would like to offer everyone a digital cigar and welcome the little lady in with a French phrase from his favorite folk song, A La Claire Fontaine: "Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai."
