Francois-Henri Pinault the Father of Linda Evangelista's Son

Report — Francois-Henri Pinault Is the Father of Linda Evangelista's Son

>> The mysterious paternity of Linda Evangelista's 4-year-old son, Augustin James, may finally be solved. And it seems the rumors that Francois-Henri Pinault is the father are right, despite denials from both Evangelista's agent back in 2007 and Pinault's rep in 2009.

Evangelista appeared at the Manhattan magistrate's court yesterday, the New York Post reports, in hopes of hashing out a child support agreement with Pinault. This marks her third or fourth trip to Family Court, with no agreement yet reached, making a Fall support trial likely, according to a court source.

Pinault didn't show yesterday, but that was due to a misunderstanding, his lawyer, David Aronson, said: "We had understood that it was to be a brief, telephone conference, to bring Magistrate Troy up to date on what the status was." Evangelista's lawyer, William Beslow, meanwhile, had no comment; neither did Evangelista.

Augustin James was conceived in early 2006, when Pinault was reportedly separated from then-girlfriend, now-wife Salma Hayek Pinault, who he had daughter Valentina with just short of a year after Evangelista's son was born.
