Minnie Driver announced her pregnancy in 2008, and has managed to go all the time since without revealing the baby's father. But now that son Henry is three, "I don't need to protect (the father) anymore," Driver tells the Guardian. "He can fend for himself. He's a grown-up." So who is he?

(Driver and Lea dated in 2009, ninemsn notes.)
