17 Stars Who Gave Up Their Children For Adoption

This is so terribly sad for everyone involved.

17 stars who gave away their kids. Did you know some of Hollywood's biggest stars once had children they gave up for adoption? They gave up their kids for all sorts of reasons: They were too broke to support a child, or they got pregnant as teens, or they were unmarried and it was the 1970s or earlier. A handful of male celebrities didn't even know they had a child until much later, because the mom concealed the pregnancy. Most of these stories are terribly sad, but some have a happy ending.
