Mary-Louise Parker

On January 7, 2004, the film, TV and stage actress gave birth to her first child, William Atticus Parker. The father, actor Billy Crudup, left Parker after an eight year relationship while she was seven months pregnant. The breakup came amid rumors that he was seeing actress Claire Danes. Crudup and Danes received some bad publicity for the alleged affair, and split two years later. Parker went on to star in the Showtime series “Weeds” and has had an on-and-off relationship with actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
