10 Celebrities Accused of Having an Affair With Their Kid's Nanny (PHOTOS)

Go ahead and call it Nannygate. Actors having affairs with their children's nanny seems to be a trend in Hollywood these days. In some cases nannies to the rich and famous spend so much time with their celeb employers, they even accompany them on vacations. So perhaps it's no surprise when the nanny suddenly seems like part of the family. But every once in a while a famous father gets a little too cozy with the hired help.

The following Tinseltown nannies turned out to be caring for the dads as well as their charges. Here are 10 celebrities accused of having an affair with their kid's nanny. Talk about Hollywood drama!

    After 13 years of marriage, rocker Gavin Rossdale and his wife, Gwen Stefani, announced their split in the summer of 2015. Almost immediately, rumors began to swirl that 49-year-old Rossdale had an affair with the nanny of the couple's three children. Though her name has not been released, the nanny was reportedly so close to the family that Stefani let her borrow her clothes. Rossdale vehemently denies the affair, but the nanny has since been fired, so what do you think?

    In a sex scandal that sounds like it came straight from a Hollywood script, the nanny to Rob Lowe's children, Jessica Gibson, accused Lowe of exposing himself as well as battering and harassing her. Lowe denied the accusation, and Gibson stayed on as nanny for a while, reportedly because she loved the children (weird). Lowe has been married to his wife, Sheryl Berkoff (pictured), since 1991. The jury is still out on this one.

  • Ben Affleck

    He still may be wearing his wedding ring, but Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their decision to divorce after 10 years of marriage just as rumors of Affleck's affair with the couple's nanny, Christine Ouzounian (pictured), began to surface. Apparently the marriage was rocky to begin with, but we doubt even Garner expected this. Ouzounian was responsible for the couple's three children. 

  • Jude Law

    If gorgeous Sienna Miller can't keep Jude Law, we don't know who can. Law admitted to cheating with Daisy Wright (pictured), the nanny to his three children from his previous marriage to Sadie Frost, while he was with Sienna. It probably didn't help matters that one of Law's children reportedly caught them in bed together. After that, it was no surprise to anyone when the pair separated.

    OK, Joe Giudice may not be an actual celebrity to some people, but since appearing on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, he and his wife, Teresa, have had their share of accusations thrown at them. Rumors have long swirled that Joe cheated on Teresa with the very person the mother of four entrusted her children to, nanny Nicole Cemelli. Not surprisingly, Cemelli no longer works for the couple, though Joe has plenty of time on his hands these days. Teresa is serving time in prison for tax evasion.

  • Ethan Hawke

    When Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman's nine-year marriage ended in 2003, it was rumored to have been due to Hawke's affair with the nanny to the couple's two children. It seems as if Hawke isn't a fan of a traditional marriage, as he told Mr. Porter magazine that people have a childish view of monogamy and infidelity. Ironically, Hawke ended up marrying nanny Ryan Shawhughes (pictured), but while he claims that the marriage is "thrilling," he adds that he doesn't know what the future holds. Let's hope this couple gets a manny to the two children they now have together!

  • Mick Jagger

    Apparently this rocker got down and dirty with the help in all sorts of places, including the kitchen counter. Mick Jagger reportedly had sex with nanny Claire Houseman while his wife, Jerry Hall (pictured), was asleep in another room. Jagger's reputation as a serial cheater is the stuff of music legend. 

  • Robin Williams

    While most people think of the now deceased Williams as a class act, he was still married to his first wife, Valerie Velardi, when he fell for the pair's son's nanny, Marsha Garces (pictured). He ended up leaving Velardi and marrying Garces. By the time they said, "I do," the new couple was expecting.

    Jon and Kate plus ... the nanny? In 2009 Stephanie Santoro claimed that for the month she was employed as a nanny for the couple, she and Jon engaged in everything from massaging to kissing to soaking in hot tubs. This was but one of several issues the Gosselins dealt with publicly throughout their marriage, which ended the same year.

    The Terminator's affair with housekeeper and nanny, Mildred Patricia Baena (pictured), pretty much terminated his marriage to Maria Shriver. It also threw an entire nation for a loop. The former California governor managed to keep the indiscretion under wraps for years. However, the affair made headlines when it came out that Schwarzenegger had fathered an illegitimate child. It's not quite clear if the tryst with Baena was ongoing or a one-time thing, but once the details emerged, Shriver filed for divorce.
