Minnie Driver has kept the father of her baby a secret because he reportedly left her when she told him she was pregnant.

The 38-year-old actress – who gave birth to son Henry in September – has so far refused to reveal the identity of Henry’s dad, but insiders claim it is the TV writer she had been dating around the time she conceived.

A source close to Minnie told the New York Post: “She was dating a TV writer. She told him she was pregnant, and he just left her. That’s why she’s been very quiet about the situation.”

It was previously claimed musician Craig Zolezzi was the father of the baby, but Minnie has always refused to comment on the rumours.

However, she recently insisted she wants the father to play a big part in Henry’s upbringing.

She said: “I’m just unorthodox. I’m taking full responsibility for being a mother but he will still play some part. I’m not married and I’m not getting married to this person.

“So I don’t know what’s going to happen. I sort of just take it moment by moment. Everyone’s grown up, everyone is cool. You just want to create as happy and loving an environment as you can.”
