Hallelujah! All hail Canada’s most musical baby

The Egyptian baby named Facebook is not the only newborn making the headlines this week. Canadians singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright and Lorca Cohen, daughter of legendary melancholic musician, Leonard, have announced the birth of a baby girl this week.

Just a year after Wainwright, son of Loudon Wainwright III and the late folk singer Kate Mc Garrigle, voiced his ‘paternal feelings’ the Wainwright-Cohen progeny is causing much excitement in the music world owing to the baby’s ultra talent -drenched gene pool.

According to Wainwright’s official website ‘Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011 in Los Angeles, California to proud parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt.’

Wainwright, who is openly gay, goes on to rectify reports which characterise Lorca Cohen as ‘the surrogate’. In case anyone is confused by the happy trio of parents he clearly spells out that Lorca did not carry the baby for anyone else. Both parents will be bringing up Viva alongside ‘Deputy Dad’, Wainwright’s partner Jorn Weisbrodt.
