Celebrity marriages are not known for being the most stable. But throw a hot nanny into the mix, and you’re pretty much guaranteed to hear some not-so-pretty rumors. Some famous relationships naturally end when the stars fall out of love, others are are ruined when someone cheats. For the famous people on this list, a tempting nanny in the home was too much to resist. These are the celebrities who hooked up with their nannies.
Why do people who slept with their nannies get caught? Maybe these celebrities who had affairs with their nannies needed a “normal” to share their life or bed with. The only problem? Normal people have a tendency to spill the beans, sometimes in the form of a love child. Even knowing that there’s a chance they’ll get caught, celebrities find nannies mighty tempting. First off, they are good listeners. The nanny is invested in the celebrity’s career because that ensures her livelihood. It’s hard to brag to your spouse about your career when she’s already got an Oscar.
The nanny knows a celebrity’s life inside and out. She’s got the magic touch with the kids. She knows how to behave on a jet and how to dodge the paparazzi. She’s already in your house so you don’t have to come up with excuses to leave. Pursuing the nanny is an inside job. Which is probably why nannies are one of the leading causes of celebrity affairs. The harsh nanny spotlight on Ben Affleck in 2015 provided an interesting look at how nannies take down celebrity marriages. Robin Williams was one of those famous people who slept with their nannies, but since he stayed married to her for 19 years, everyone got over it. Well, except maybe his first wife. Ethan Hawke claims he didn’t cheat on Uma Thurman with their nanny, but he still ended up marrying her. The couple have kids together. Even Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger copped to parenting a child with his maid/nanny, despite the fact that the revelation ended his marriage to Maria Shriver. There’s just something about those nannies that make men cheat.
