A joint post from CBB contributors Shannon and Kaisa:
Kelly Klein, 50, the ex-wife of fashion designer Calvin Klein, 64, is to become a mother for the first time. She is expecting a baby boy via surrogate mother in California, due on November 1. Kelly’s spokesman Paul Wilmot confirms,
She is expecting a baby and it is with a surrogate.
The newborn will carry Kelly’s maiden name Rector. Asource says the first name is possibly Owen or Lewis — however, Wilmot deniesthis. The identity of the father will remain a secret for the time being; it was only revealed that no family member or relative was involved. After the baby is born,
Kelly will be living with the baby in New York and Palm Beach.
Kelly’s marriage to Calvin lasted for 20 years — the last ten were spent separately and the divorce was finalized in April of last year. According to an insider,
Even though Calvin has a daughter, Marci, 40, from his first marriage, none of us ever really heard any talk of Calvin and Kelly starting their own family.
However, Kelly had wanted children for many years and said after her 40th birthday that she ‘felt her biological clock ticking.’ Another friend adds,
She has wanted a baby for a very long time. She loves children. She is very excited about this.
