Salma Hayek’s billionaire husband Francois Henri Pinault is the father of former supermodel Linda Evangelista’s son, The New York Post is reporting.

A year after his birth, Evangelista claimed the father was a New York architect while her spokesperson at DNA Model Management, Didier Fernandez, called the Pinault paternity rumor "untrue" in 2007.

Yesterday was actually the model's third or fourth trip to Family Court, but no agreement was reached and the dispute could now result in a full support trial.

Evangelista, 46, refused to comment as she left the court while Pinault, 49, was not present.

His lawyer David Aronson told The Post, “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 and Pinault conceived Augustin in early 2006, numerous sources have said, when he was separated from then-gal pal Hayek, whom he went on to marry in 2009.
