Perez Hilton has become a father for the second time.

The 37-year-old celebrity blogger announced the arrival of the new baby - a sibling for two-year-old Mario Armando Lavandeira III - on his website earlier today (11.05.15), but declined to reveal the gender or any other details about the newborn tot.

Alongside a picture of him holding the newborn's foot, he wrote: ''It is with great pride and relief that I can finally announce: I am a dad again! The road to this birth has been a difficult journey, quite different from the first time, and my son and I are overjoyed at this happy and healthy addition to our family.

''Every child is a blessing and this Mother's Day was extra blessed for me and my mother!''

Perez has never revealed the identity of the mother of his eldest child, who was conceived via a donor egg and a surrogate mother.

Announcing the birth of his little boy two years ago, the reality star said he was looking forward to the ''challenge'' of raising a child.

He said at the time: ''I am so humbled to welcome this little man into my life. And I am honoured and ready for the challenge of guiding him through his.''
