Minnie Driver has finally revealed the father of her son.

The 42-year-old actress has never disclosed the paternity of three-year-old Henry but now admits he was a writer on her former TV show 'The Riches'.

She added to The Observer magazine: "I don't need to protect him any more. 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. He's not famous. There's no big story."

Minnie also admitted that the mystery man has now increased his involvement in their son's life.

She added: "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."

The 'Conviction' star has previously admitted she would like to have more children, but doesn't think she could cope raising two kids on her own.

She has said: "Henry's dad and I probably wouldn't have any more together, but I would love to have more.

"But I couldn't do another one without a partner; I couldn't do two as a single mum, I really couldn't. It would be too much."
