Is Salma Hayek's Husband the Father of Linda Evangelista's Son?

French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault allegedly conceived a child with the supermodel while he and Hayek were on a break

There's no denying that Salma Hayek's French billionaire hubby seems to have a way with the ladies!

Francois-Henri Pinault, 49, and Hayek, 44, had a child (3-year-old Valentina Paloma Pinault) together in 2007 and tied the knot in 2009. But according to the New York Post, Hayek's man also hooked up with supermodel Linda Evangelista -- and she claims that he's the father of her 4-year-old son, Augustin James.

Evangelista's claims are particularly surprising, considering that (according to the Post) Pinault has repeatedly insisted that he has only three children -- Valentina and two from a previous marriage.

News that Pinault may be "Augie's" baby daddy was revealed when Evangelista, 46, went to court in New York on Thursday to hammer out financial arrangements for his care. Though Evangelista had previously refused to name the father of her son, she couldn't keep the secret in open court.

Thursday was the model's third or fourth trip to court, and no agreement was reached. According to the Post, this means they'll likely hold a support trial in the fall.

Pinault -- who is CEO of the $28 billion conglomerate that owns Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Yves St. Laurent -- was not in court due to a misunderstanding, according to his lawyer, David Aronson.

"We had understood that it was to be a brief, telephone conference, to bring Magistrate Troy up to date on what the status was," Aronson told The Post.

Evangelista and Pinault allegedly conceived their boy in early 2006 -- when Pinault was reportedly separated from then-girlfriend Hayek -- and the child was born in October 2006, the Post said.

Meanwhile, he and Hayek welcomed daughter Valentina in September 2007 and the two ended up getting married on Valentine's Day 2009 in Paris.

So even though Valentina and Augie are toddlers, they already have a lot in common: gorgeous mommies and a daddy who might have some explaining to do!
