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.

Aside from joint custody, Krishna Thea’s last name was changed to Lakshmi-Dell.

Actress Minnie Driver gave birth to her son Henry back in 2008.

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.

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.
