Rest assured, the #1 paternity drama in Hollywood remains January Jones, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have room to welcome more mysterious parenthood into the picture. Enter ’80s-’90s supermodel Linda Evangelista and her previously dadless son, per the NY Post:

The father of supermodel Linda Evangelista’s 4-year-old boy is none other than billionaire Frenchman Francois-Henri Pinault — who just happens to be the husband of actress Salma Hayek.

The Victoria’s Secret stunner came to court yesterday in hopes of hashing out a support agreement with Pinault, the father of the boy, Augustin James.The Manhattan magistrate’s court action confirms that the two-timing Pinault — CEO of the $28 billion conglomerate that owns Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Yves St. Laurent — is the daddy to two 4-year-olds by different world-famous beauties.

Evangelista and Pinault conceived their boy in early 2006, when Pinault was reportedly separated from then-gal pal Hayek, whom he wed in 2009.
Pinault and Evangelista, and Heidi Klum and Flavio Briatore… what is it with billionaires planting kids inside supermodels and then locking their wallets? It’s like these guys are Johnny Appleseed, only they refuse to water and prune the trees after they are planted. You water and prune toddlers, right?
