Minnie Driver breaks her silence.
The Academy Award-nominated actress has identified her 3-year-old son Henry‘s father, telling The Observer that he was a writer on her former television show The Riches.
Minnie said: “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. He’s not famous. There’s no big story.”
Is he a good dad? Sort of,” Minnie admitted. “He’s figuring it out… I mean, he hasn’t been that involved, his choice. But he is now.”
The Conviction star – who plays a teacher in Marc Evans’ new musical Hunky Dory – has previously said she would like more children, but doesn’t think she could cope raising two children as a single mother.
“Henry’s dad and I probably wouldn’t have any more together, but I would love to have more,” she said. “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.”
