Originally posted March 5th: Actress Janine Turner, 45, and her daughter Juliette Loraine, 10, attend the special screening of High School Confidential at The Times Center today in New York. Of her journey through parenthood, Janine tells People,

I never intended to be a single mother, but when I discovered around the eighth month of my pregnancy that I’d be pretty much on my own, it was like, ‘Okay. We’re going to do this.’

We see her father occasionally, and it’s nice when we do. We are on good terms.

what a gorgeous little girl! who is juliette’s father?

Pam on

I don’t believe she’s ever said. Juliette has her last name. Maybe she did a sperm donor? Not sure.

Janine Turner never named the father but I remember reading that they had a relationship and she became pregnant with Juliette. They broke up and he decided not to be a part of Juliette’s life. I remember reading that in an interview she gave when Juliette was very little. I also remember her being on a special that showed a dressing room that Juliette used while her mom was working. It featured a bed that had this beautiful comforter on it, it was either ballerinas or princesses, but their dresses were 3-d. I never forgot that I loved it so much. When I found the nursery theme Paper dolls (has 3-d dresses) I jumped at it!

Aren’t the issues being discussed on that show a little deep for a 10 year old?

She’s a beautiful girl. I remember there was speculation that the father was Jerry Jones Jr. (son of Dallas Cowboy owner); they were dating and then he didn’t want anything to do with Janine being preggers. I lived in Dallas around that time, and that’s what everyone was saying then. Don’t know if it’s true, but pretty harsh if it is. At the same time, Janine appears to have been a wonderful single mom.

elisabeth- that sounds like such a neat nursery!

marissa- i think a lot of people just walk the red carpet but don’t stay for the show. this was discussed a few weeks back on CBB when sly stallone took his 3 daughters to the premiere of rambo.

juliette is a stunner- just like her mom!

I have also heard that Jerry Jones’s son is the father. Janine and Juliette have always lived in Texas. I think Juliette resembles Jerry Jones so it wouldn’t surprise me if his son is the dad.

just noticed first Jerry Jones commenter was Jen, too! Sorry for any confusion. There are lots of us out here…

I live in the Fort Worth/Dallas area, and everybody around here pretty much knows it’s Jerry Jones’ son who is Juliette’s father. Apparently, he was (and still is) married to another woman when Juliette was conceived. I’ve actually seen Juliette referred to as Juliette Turner-Jones in a recent article.

I was curious about Jerry Jones, Jr. after reading some of the comments so I looked online for some pictures. I’ve got to say that if Jerry Jones, Jr., is the father, then Juliette looks a great deal like his sister, Charlotte Jones Anderson.

Funny thing about genetics.
