Father Of Minnie Driver's Baby Remains A Mystery

Minnie Driver

Mom-to-be Minnie Driver is shooting down reports that San Francisco musician Craig Zolezzi is the father of her baby.

“Craig’s not the dad!” she told U.K.’s Independent newspaper on Thursday. “He’s my great friend, and he’s been so cool about it.”

Minnie, 38, wouldn’t reveal the father’s identity, but hinted he’s English and “sort of in the same business … he’s really busy, like me.”

Why so secretive?

“I want to shield the baby’s dad as much as I can because it wasn’t his choice to get roped into all this stuff,” said Minnie, who noted the pregnancy was “unplanned” but “very happily received.”

His name will “come out in time and there’ll be some other bump people will be interested in, and I’ll have this baby and get on with my life.”

Asked if they’d wed, she replied, “Definitely not in the near future.

“It’s not important to me,” she went on. “I don’t think a piece of paper lends itself to the idea of being a good parent.”

She said she is uncertain if she’ll have her baby in the U.S. or England. “A big part of me wants my child to be English,” she said. “My family are here, and I’m sure I’ll move back here one day. It’s just that my work, and the opportunities I’ve had, have been so varied and wonderful in the States that I’ve just followed my nose really.”

Minnie is due in August.

    OK Zbella.What are you talking about..Thats all she is, is an attention getter. She won’t name the father for attention. Not to protect him..

    Who cares? It’s a private matter and she wants to keep it to herself. It’s not hurting anyone that the public doesn’t know who the baby’s father is. What matters is that she’ll be a great mom and this child will be loved.

    I find her so unattractive, but that has nothing to do with her becoming a mom. I just never thought she was pretty!

    Good for her! She made a choice to have this baby and is excited about becomming a mom. She’s a secure and confident woman with the ability to raise this child on her own. That’s great.
