Bitter Brit Minnie Driver is no longer remaining mum on the identity of her baby daddy. Back in 2008, the 42-year-old actress gave birth to little Henry. Until now, Driver had showed some goodwill by not naming names, but it appears she's done keeping quiet for her undercover ex-lover. In a new interview with The Observer, Driver reveals that Henry's father was a writer for The Riches, the FX television series she starred on. Although she doesn't call the guy out by name, it could only be a handful of people. Says Driver, "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." As for his role as Henry's father, Driver admits he's a work in progress. She adds, "Is he a good dad? Sort of. He's figuring it out. I mean, he hasn't been that involved -- his choice. But he is now." While Driver is enjoying motherhood, she has no plans on being a single mom a second time around. Driver says, "I couldn't do two as a single mom, I really couldn't. It would be too much."
