Baby mama drama for country star Chris Cagle

10/04/2005 at 07:23 PM ET

Br63279 Country star Chris Cagle, 36, (Laredo, Anywhere But Here) got an unpleasant surprise over the weekend. His girlfriend, whose pregnancy Cagle was very excited about, gave birth to a child that wasn’t his.

In a web posting this morning, Chris reveals, "As many of you are aware, I had been anxiously awaiting the addition of a new baby to my life. The baby has been born and both mother and child are in good health. Since the birth, however, we have discovered that biologically, the child is not mine. As excited as I was about becoming a new father, my disappointment now is equally as strong. So out of respect for all that are involved, please allow this situation to remain private."

That totally blows.

I can’t resist pointing out that as a country crooner, he has perfect material for a new song…

Oh my goodness. I guess that happens more than people realize. Poor guy! He sounded so excited to be a Daddy and seems genuinely upset that the baby is not his. How sad. (Unfortunately, that IS perfect material for a “done me wrong” song – “My Baby Had a Baby that Wasn’t My Baby”!)

OMGoodness! That is just horrible:-( Now I wonder…how did they find out?! Was it a moment like on the new TV show “Inconceivable”?! Poor guy…and shame on the chick.

I would think it would be fairly safe to assume there is some obvious physical characteristic that makes it obvious it is not his. The only other way they would know would be with blood tests (DNA) which would probably only be done if there was something wrong with the baby. No matter what, it is a sad situation.

well, if he wanted it to be private he should have kept it private. There was no reason to point it out unless the difference is very obvious. Very sad situation though.

I am sure he didn’t really want this to become public. But, being that he is a famous country music singer, the news was bound to be leaked somewhere. Fans of his have been wondering about the baby and if it was okay. I think it was wise of him to release the statement that he did, and ask everyone to respect his privacy in this matter. I feel bad for him, he’s been through A LOT of bad crap over the past couple years.

so sad. I don’t know who this guy is but I wish him the best.
