Minnie Driver braced for life as single mumJuly 25th, 2008 - 3:52 pm ICT by ANI
London , July 25 (ANI): So what if her babys un-named father is not by her side? Eight-months-pregnant Minnie Driver is more than happy to welcome her first child all alone as she prepares for her most important role yet - single mother.
Based in Los Angeles , Minnie revealed her pregnancy on a chat show in March but insisted on keeping the name of her babys father a secret, only revealing that he is English and works in show biz.
The Good Will Hunting star said that the mystery man wont even be present when she will be going through labour.
Im not married and I dont know if Ill stay with the guy. If he wants to come out and talk about it, hes more than welcome to. But since he doesnt live his life in the public eye, its something I want to keep private, The Daily Express quoted her, as saying.
She added: My mum and aunt Serena will be with me, as will my best friends, a midwife and a yoga teacher. And Ill be the wailing monster at the centre.
In fact, shes least bothered about the fact that her baby will be growing up without having a father around.
Minnie, who discovered a previous relationship with actor Matt Damon had ended when he announced the split on Oprah Winfreys show, said: Its great to be an independent creature. Today you dont need a man any more. In the old days, [have] a baby without marriage and people would put you out. Today you speak about it on talk shows. Im very into feeling this female thing.
While lonely spells just another word for Minnie, she said that her dog has been her comfort through difficult times.
With this pregnancy I was very sick the first four months, she explains.
My black labrador Bubba, my constant loving companion, knew it. Hed see me lying on the couch. Hed stay with me. He felt for me. (ANI)
