'X Factor' Contestant

My Long-Lost Son Knows

I'm His Daddy!

9/24/2011 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"X Factor" contestant Chris Rene got two pieces of good news this week -- he made it to the next round of the show ... and his long-lost son learned Chris is his biological father.

Chris had a son six years ago named Elijah that he never knew about, who ended up in foster care. Chris and the boy were re-united four years ago, but the foster parents referred to Chris (who has another son who is 3) only as a close family friend.

But Chris -- who we're told has spent an enormous amount of time with Elijah -- posted on his Facebook page today that Elijah asked his foster parents who his real dad was. The foster parents asked the boy to guess ... and he guessed it was Chris.

Chris wrote, "I am so happy i can't express my joy with words!!! I feel a new song coming though. So Blessed."

A song about his "new" kid and maybe a new song bitching about his stupid whore of an ex that never told him she had his kid. $$$$$

Wow, this is what reality TV is all about! A guy randomly knocks up women he's not married to, has AT LEAST two children he leaves to others to take care of, and leaves it to others to tell his own children who their father is.
Next week, we get to find out he's paying zero in child support.

A man in his 20's with two bastard children thinks he's "blessed"? Blessed because the tax payers of this country are paying for their care I guess!

people full of insults are really stupid... most children arent conceived on purpose and most of them turn out just fine... now that this guys music aspirations are being realized he'll be able to take care of his kids... he'll probably **** as many girls as possible and go back to smoking crack... but theres always a chance he becomes a responsible dad

If a child is in the foster care system and the biological father becomes known it should be fairly straightforward for him to get custody. The fact that the child has stayed with the foster parents makes me pretty suspicious about what kind of person this guy must be.

The foster parents told him to 'guess' who his father was? Well, that's a Hallmark moment right there. What is wrong with these people?
