Having a child is a monumental experience for both parents. While the issues of family and children can be touchy for anyone, the matter can be all the more safe-guarded in Hollywood, where the prying eyes of the press and fans are a constant. That being said, we’ll take a look at five celebrities who have tried to keep their baby daddies hidden wether for privacy or other personal reasons.

Out Of The Office

In 2017, Mindy Kaling gave birth to her very first child Katherine. Unfortunately, the Emmy nominated actress hasn’t revealed the father yet. Many people in Hollywood speculate that it’s The Office co-star B.J. Novak. The two have been seen dating on and off for several years.

Bun In The Oven

In 2010, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi gave birth to her daughter Krishna Thea. The following year, former IMG CEO Teddy Forstmann stepped up to claim he was the father. Around this time, Lakshmi still had a thing for ex-husband Salman Rushdie. The paternity test proved that Forstmann is the father. Aside from joint custody, Krishna Thea’s last name was changed to Lakshmi-Dell.

Baby Can’t Drive

Actress Minnie Driver gave birth to her son Henry back in 2008. Driver kept the father’s identity a secret in order to protect their reputation. “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. I know, but it’s ridiculous. He’s not famous. There’s no big story,” she told The Guardian. It was later revealed to be writer Timothy J. Lea.

A Model Example

Regardless, the Mad Men star enjoys raising her son as a single mother. “It’s good to have strong women around a man to teach him to respect women.
