It’s not easy being a single mother. And it’s arguably harder still to be a famous single mother. Of course, it’s not just Hollywood that shares the mentality that pregnant women and babies are fair game for public scrutiny.

It’s no wonder that some celebrities want to keep the public out of their family affairs. In 2018, the nuclear family is a myth. A baby doesn’t need one parent of each gender to have a happy, healthy upbringing. But that doesn’t stop inquiring minds from prying. When a romantically unattached star announces they are pregnant, the people must know who else was involved. And sometimes, these mothers-to-be quite rightly don’t feel like sharing.

The women (and 2 men) on this list made a choice to keep the particulars of their conception private. Some of them were successful in their attempts.

If he was going to change the hearts of white America, he had to try another tactic.

Samuel D. Pollard’s documentary about the career of Sammy Davis, Jr. is more than just a Hollywood biography. At a time when race relations have returned to the forefront of America’s consciousness, Sammy’s struggle rings true to a shameful degree. Despite his innumerable talents, he still faced plenty of discrimination on account of his skin color and later, his Jewish faith. But his unflappable spirit was also a beacon of hope for other marginalized people. As one interviewee puts it, his success, “made [African Americans] feel special and for a time feel equal”.
