Aiken, who has an 18-month-old son with music producer and longtime friend Jaymes Foster, also addressed why it took him so long to reveal his sexuality to fans.

“I was waiting like so many folks are waiting… for change,” he said. “I realized the time for waiting has passed. The power of truth and living honestly is very liberating.”
