Tom Ford Is A Proud Papa!

The world has just become a chicer place, because multitalented director-designer-provocateur Tom Ford is now a papa. The designer and his partner of 25 years, Richard Buckley, have announced the joyous arrival of their son, Alexander. Buckley, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Hommes International met Ford while he was still working at Gucci and before he launched his eponymous line. The enduring couple later moved to Italy in 1989 after Buckley's recovery from cancer.
In an interview with Out in 2011, Ford said of Buckley, "You can look at someone and feel like you've known him forever. The first night I ever had drinks with Richard I felt I knew everything about him." In that same extremely romantic interview, Buckley said, "I couldn't imagine being without Tom now. I couldn't imagine what I'd be like if something happened to him. There's only one Tom for me. He is still that man who I met 24 years ago, who has a good heart."
