Clay Aiken Gets His Face Done

What’s better than a stunning portrait of American Idol heartthrob Clay Aiken hanging on the wall?

Why, the real Clay Aiken, standing right before your eyes, of course!

Sardi’s, the world-famous restaurant near Broadway in Manhattan, just added a caricature of Clay, 30, to its walls. The eatery has hundreds of such portraits hanging inside.

The out-of-the-closet and newly-coupled Aiken was honored by Sardi’s for his Broadway debut in the musical Spamalot, which the red-headed star will end his run in on January 4.

The man himself was personally on hand for the unveiling of his drawn likeness.

Meanwhile, Aiken recently looked back on 2008 in an interview with People magazine.

“At the end of the day, [my son] Parker is the most important thing of the year, and of my life, without question,” the singer reveals. “Having a son and that type of responsibility is obviously going to be something that I remember forever.”

Clay’s best friend Jaymes Foster gave birth to their child Parker Foster Aiken on August 8.
