Actor Mark Lester Says He Is Father of Michael Jackson's Daughter Paris

British child star Mark Lester says he's the father of Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris.

"I gave Michael my sperm so that he could have kids - and I believe Paris is my daughter," said Lester.

The actor told Britain's News of the World he donated his sperm to Jackson at a London clinic 13 years ago.

He thinks Paris is his daughter because of an "uncanny likeness" between her and his own daughter, Harriet.

Lester, 51, wants to take a paternity test.

He said he's coming forward because he has "concerns about the welfare and upbringing of the children."

Jackson and Lester were friends for more than 25 years and he allegedly spent the day with the Jackson kids after their father's memorial service last month.

Lester is godfather to all three of Jackson’s children.
