This article is not written to disparage single mothers and the level of dedication and skill with which they raise and nurture their children. Many single mothers are doing it successfully alone.

Who is your baby daddy? When a romantically unattached celebrity announces they are pregnant, the public demands to know the man behind the deed.

How many times have you seen female celebrities being asked online to name their baby daddy and don't?

That's because that woman would rather not name the father of her child because he is a burden.

They are not publicly named because these women carry a lot of baggage.

Below are some of the possible reasons;

1. Her baby daddy may have multiple women out there with children as well. Who wants to be associated with that?

2. He doesn't pay child support for any other children he has out there. These women don't want to risk being ridiculed that she too had a deadbeat man in her life. It's embarrassing.

3. He may be a murderer, in a corruption scandal and doesn't want any link to his embarrassing shenanigans.

4. She is in a relationship and is truly done with him.

5.   Her baby daddy may have his family secrets leaked which would perhaps affect her career. for instance, if he is of the LGBTQ community and she is in a Christian-oriented career. No wonder some celebrities want to keep the public out of their family affairs.

6. He could be involved in a love triangle and legally it would be bad for her.

7. He could be a public figure, for instance, the President and such news could be bad for his political life.

8. He is married and has asked her not to name him.

9. He could very well be her best friend's man and this would surely end the relationship between the two women if the information ever leaked.
