When a celebrity announces news of a baby, whether biological or adoptive, the lucky parents are usually showered with congratulatory wishes. But some stars are reluctant to share details of their child’s parentage. Spice Girl Geri Halliwell , for instance, kept the identity of her daughter Bluebell’s dad under wraps until it emerged years later that it was former journalist Sacha Gervasi . Fellow Briton Minnie Driver was coy about the paternity of her child too, with Padma Lakshmi’s baby daddy not revealed for a long time as well. The actress and TV show host admitted in her memoir Love, Loss and What We Ate that she stayed mum about his identity because, at the time, she was being intimate with two different men. She ultimately had to rely on a paternity test to settle the matter. While the beans were eventually spilled in those cases, other celebrities have remained tight-lipped until now … Amber Heard The actress revealed that she had become a mother by posting a picture of her newborn daughter, Oonagh Paige , on social media in July 2021.

Heard revealed the news three months after her daughter was born in April. “She’s the beginning of the rest of my life,” she said. Hello! magazine reported that Oonagh was born via surrogate, but it still remains unknown who fathered the Aquaman star’s baby.
