3 Moms, Including January Jones, Who Won’t Reveal Their Baby’s Father

Posted by Katie F. on March 15th, 2012

January Jones gave birth to her first child last year and she has enjoyed every minute of being a mother since then. She couldn’t stop talking about her son Xander on Tuesday night at an event for Mad Men. Xander was six months old that day, but he’s too young to understand the significance. She said they didn’t celebrate the milestone and that he had gone to bed before she even went out for the night. He got some extra food at dinner that night, but he doesn’t really know the difference. When asked about being a mother to her “awesome son,” Jones said, “I adore it.” One thing surrounding January’s motherhood that has remained a mystery is who the father of her child is. There has been a lot of speculation and rumors have swirled about the father’s identity since it was first revealed that she was pregnant, but she didn’t name the father on her son’s birth certificate and still remains quiet about the topic.

January Jones has chosen not to reveal the identity of her son’s father to the public, but she’s not the only star to make that choice. Here are some other celebrities that have had kids without naming the babies’ fathers.

Minnie Driver

Minnie Driver would never acknowledge who her son Henry’s father is. She finally spoke about him last month, but still wouldn’t give a name for the 3-year-old’s dad. She would only admit that he has recently chosen to come back into her life and is attempting to be a good father.

Padma Lakshmi

During her pregnancy in 2009, Padma Lakshmi wouldn’t admit who the father of her child is. It has since been revealed that she hoped the father was ex-boyfriend Ted Forstmann, who died in 2011 at the age of 71, but venture capitalist Adam Dell has tried to prove in court that he is the father. Lakshmi calls Dell’s claims “inaccurate and misleading.”
