Minnie Driver is finally opening up about the identity of the man who fathered her three-year-old son, Henry Story Driver. And it turns out a clue may have been in her son’s name all along.
Driver doesn’t reveal his name, but tells the The Observer that Henry’s dad is a writer (“story driver?”) from her short-lived FX show, “The Riches.” Driver starred opposite Eddie Izzard in the show which aired in the 2007-2008 TV season.
“I don’t need to protect him any more,” says Driver. “He can fend for himself. He’s a
“Sort of. He’s figuring it out,” she adds when asked if he’s a good dad. “I mean,
he hasn’t been that involved; his choice. But he is now.”
We’re going to assume that Driver is not referring to “The Riches” creator and headwriter, Dmitry Lipkin, who along with his wife and writing partner also created Showtime’s “Hung.”
According to the notoriously mistake-ridden IMDB, there’s only one other male listed as writing for “The Riches”: Aaron Blitzstein, who is also credited with writing for several shows, including “Family Guy,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Andy Milonakis Show.”
Driver had previously referred to her baby’s father as an “amazing musician.” Before he got into writing, Blitzstein, it turns out, was a personal manager who worked with big music acts, including Sonic Youth, Guided by Voices, Beastie Boys, Dinosaur Jr, The Breeders and the Foo Fighters — at least according to Wikipedia.
If Blitzstein does turn out to be Henry’s dad, we hope he keeps his son away from his Twitter account where he posts zingers like this: “At what age does a baby start shutting the f*** up?”
