Ah, Hollywood. The delightful place where celebrities live amongst each other and fans adore silently from afar. We're far from the Golden Years where Marilyn Monroe strolled the streets and Frank Sinatra's secrets weren't splattered all over tabloids. These days, an actor so much blinks at another actress and all of a sudden gossip magazines are claiming they're in a full-blown relationship. Secrets are no longer secrets in 2019. Anyone's indiscretion or mishap will be online within 24 hours; it's just up to the celebrity in question if they're going to acknowledge it or not.
For the 20 male celebrities on this list, some found themselves falling for women who weren't in the spotlight (at least then), while others found themselves having babies with complete strangers. Whatever their relationships came to be, the women they fell for were nobody's in the public eye until their romance came alive in the tabloids.
