According to Drew Reports, Akon has accepted his financial responsibilities for his son born to a sister of Ugandan fashion designer Sylvie Owori.

The mother, Susan Owori, whom Akon knocked up while on tour last year, apparently couldn't get in contact with the Senegalese singer to serve him with papers. So she did what any other self-respecting groupie who happened to get herself pregnant by a Superstar would do -- she sold her story to a tabloid.

“I think kids are a blessing,” said the currently married sex symbol. “[To set the record straight], I never ran away from my responsibilities and I never plan to. Everything I am doing now is for [my other five kids] anyway, so the more kids I can have, the better. I just love them.”

Beaming with pride, Akon said, "It’s a boy and he’s handsome as hell."
