Minnie Driver has never publicly admitted who the father of her three year old son is…until now.
After keeping the secret for three years, Minnie has finally revealed the father of her son, Henry Story Driver.
The 42-year-old actress told The Observer that her son’s father is a writer from Minnie’s former TV show, ‘The Riches,’ but she did not reveal his full name. She explained she kept the secret for his privacy, but now admits “I don’t need to protect him anymore. He can fend for himself. He’s a grown up.”
“We weren’t together and he wasn’t directly in the business, so I chose to protect him and not have a rain of publicity,” she added. The couple worked together between 2007 and 2008 on Minnie’s short-lived show.
Minnie says this revelation isn’t a “big story” since Henry’s father “is not famous.” She claims he is, however, trying to become a better dad. “Is he a good dad? Sort of. He’s figuring it out,” Driver admitted. “I mean, he hasn’t been that involved – his choice. But he is now.”
There were rumors when Minnie became pregnant that she was shielding his identity because he was a married man. I really hope that’s not the case. Man I hate homewreckers!
