Here Are Some Celebrities You May Have Forgotten Have Kids Together
Just a reminder that these duos are sharing custody.
When Helena Christensen, 46, was recently spotted out and about in New York City with her 16-year old son Mingus, we had forgotten who his father was. But her offspring is shared with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, whom she dated for five years, from 1998 until 2003.
The supermodel, who has been dating Interpol singer Paul Banks since 2008, has said her boyfriend loves her son, and seeing them together makes her “melt.”
She’s also still on good terms with Norman, saying, “there are just some people in my life whom I would fight for until the end, no matter what. And Norman is one of them.”
“There's him, my son, my boyfriend, my family,” she said. “That's my South American side, where you fight for your family, you fight for the people you love. My boyfriend's always teasing me with, "Here comes that Peruvian side! The emotions are erupting.”
We also forgot all about the drama between Eddie Murphy and ex-Spice Girl Mel B., who welcomed a child with the comedian in April 2007. Eddie initially denied he was the father and demanded a DNA test, which proved he actually was. He and Mel soon repaired their relationship, and now they both help raise Angel Iris Murphy Brown, although Mel’s husband Stephen Belafonte is also considered a second father, because he helped raise Angel.
The America’s Got Talent judge said on the Allegedly with Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss podcast that all is good with Eddie now, and that she and Angel visit him for dinners.
“I do [have a relationship with him], but it’s very respectful,” she said. “She sees Stephen as her dad. He’s been there since the beginning.”

Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen are occasionally spotted out together with their 17-year-old daughter, Lily Mo Sheen. Kate and Michael, who is now dating comedian Sarah Silverman, are on very friendly terms when it comes to their offspring, and have been to see Hamilton together in New York. The two dated from 1995 until 2003, although they never married. Kate later married director Len Wiseman, and stayed married for over a decade before splitting late last year.
