For ages, the identity of supermodel Linda Evangelista's babydaddy has been a well-guarded secret. When previously asked, Evangelista fobbed off inquiries by claiming he was an architect in New York. Well, turns out he's no architect. The New York Post reports: "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 Post has learned." The Post made this discovery when Evangelista turned up in court to work out a child support agreements with Pinault. No word yet on what Salma thinks about all this. [NY Post]
