Minnie gave birth to son Henry Story in September 2008. The actress has raised her child as a single mother and refused to identify the his father – until now.

Speaking to The Observer, a very-private Minnie, 42, reveals that she conceived Henry with a writer from her TV series The Riches.

"I don't need to protect him anymore," Minnie explains. "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."

The movie and TV star, who has dated Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Harrison Ford, still has not provided the father’s name. Why not?  “He's not famous," Minnie adds. "There's no big story."

Minnie explained that the father is coming around in terms of being there for Henry. “Is he a good dad? Sort of. He's figuring it out," she tells The Observer. "I mean, he hasn't been that involved -- his choice. But he is now."

Would she do it again? Not “without a partner,” she says. “I couldn’t do two as a single mom. I really couldn’t. It would be too much.”
