Minnie Driver would like to give son Henry, 2, a sibling or two, but she admits she doesn’t want to go the single mom route again. The actress is raising Henry alone, and has always refused to reveal the identity of his father.
“Henry’s dad and I probably wouldn’t have any more together, but I would love to have more,” she said in a recent interview. “But I couldn’t do another one without a partner; I couldn’t do two as a single mum, I really couldn’t. It would be too much.”
The Conviction actress admits that while it was hard dealing with the speculation into who Henry’s father is, she feels she did the right thing in keeping his identity private.
“It was a beautiful unplanned gift, that’s the best way of putting it,” she said. “And I’m so grateful for Henry’s dad. He’s really cool and he loves Hen and they have a great relationship.
“The reason I was so careful about him is that he is not in the public eye and it goes against every piece of moral fiber I have to throw someone into that maelstrom. So it was much easier for me to just have people speculating and deal with that myself.”
