Tom Ford eyes off fatherhood
It seems that having it all isn't everything for designer Tom Ford. He has admitted in the latest issue of Fantastic Man magazine that his next foray will be into fatherhood.
"I'm going to have a kid in 2008," he told writer Stephen Todd. "Richard [Buckley, also Ford's partner] knows I've wanted this for a long time. He's just resisted it. He would be a spectacular father. It's going to give his life new meaning."
The candid interview also reveals that Ford plans to be the biological father: "I'm a lot younger. If things follow their natural order he'll [Richard] probably leave the planet ahead of me and I can't not have had something I've wanted forever. I've always wanted kids. I don't want to get to 75 years old and just have made a lot of dresses, done some houses."
What a stylish kid they will make!
In the interview, Ford also discusses his former days at Gucci, retirement and his views on the human body:
"I don't find the human body offensive. I don't find a guy's cock or a woman's vagina offensive; in fact, I find them beautiful. I would put them on an ad with a perfume bottle if I could get away with it."
On working for Gucci... "Leaving Gucci taught me a lot about who is a real friend and who is a friend for business. The Gucci experience was horrible. I was burnt out from working too hard and I was exhausted from the experience and a certain disillusionment and an inability to see my future. Luckily I had made enough money to not have to work for the rest of my life, and I seriously thought I'd play tennis and golf for the rest of my days. But I got that out of my system."
On retirement... "I will not retire until I literally drop dead."
