It is every woman's dream to get swept off of her feet by a movie star or celebrity that she has always had a crush on. Even if it just a fling, it is still something to tell her grandchildren about. Okay, maybe not her grandchildren, but definitely a story to tell her friends on a Friday night out.
Though it seems like these men would be out of most people's league because of the impossible standard of Hollywood, sometimes they just want a breath of fresh air. Normal women are not stuck up and sometimes they are just easier to talk to than Hollywood starlets. Believe it or not, men are not as shallow as they are depicted to be. Sometimes personality is more important than looks, even for famous A-list actors and TV personalities.
Of course, some of these stories ended up with a "happily ever after" ending, and some of them definitely did not. Other times, it was just a short-lived fling that resulted in a child.
Here are the 21 celebrity men who had babies with regular, everyday women.
