These Celebs had Secret Children and Some Didn’t Even Know until Much Later – Part II
It’s an ancient script: rich, famous man meets and mates keen, pretty woman. Fast-forward nine months and surprisingly, a baby suddenly pops up, usually to the dismay and shock of the new dad, whose one-night stand is now on an 18-year direct debit. While many fathers dispute the claims of their kids and their baby-mamas, here are some world-famous cases in which paternity has long been confirmed or acknowledged…

Edwards denied Hunter’s claims but after retreating from public life, he became a loving father to Frances.
Mel B (Scary Spice) and Eddie Murphy had a short fling and she became pregnant. When she desired to keep his baby, Murphy refused to accept his paternity and they broke up. Despite Murphy’s desperate attempts to keep the child a secret, a legal war erupted, leading to an incredibly public feud with Mel B.

After many years, he is very close to Angel, his daughter while Mel B. once recently had Christmas dinner with Murphy’s mom!

Chuck admits to an affair in 1962 and having a child named Dina. Decades later, Norris became aware about Dina’s existence when she wrote him a letter in 1991. Upon meeting her, he didn’t need a confirmatory DNA test as she looked just like him.
Liv, the secret celebrity baby of Steven Tyler is the most famous and successful parent-child birth on this list. The Aerosmith lead singer had a fling with model Bebe Buell and produced a daughter named Liv, who had taken the surname of Todd Rundgren, then Buell’s live-in rocker boyfriend. But, Liv noticed her close physical resemblance to Tyler after meeting the singer and his other daughter, Mia. She questioned her mother about similarities in their looks and Bebe confessed. Tyler and Liv began a beautiful father-daughter relationship over five years without the public being any wiser and it only came to light with Liv legally changing her last name to Tyler.
