15. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton
The Walking Dead and Grey’s Anatomy actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan and One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton are one of the most under-the-radar celebrity couples out there, so it shouldn’t be surprising the two have opted not to have nannies for their two children. The pair welcomed their son Augustus “Gus” Morgan in March 2010 and eight years later welcomed their second child, a daughter named George Virginia Morgan in February 2018. Morgan revealed in an interview however that they like to handle things themselves. “It’s hard. Between the two of us, we’ve had our hands full, but we’ve managed to do it without any help. We have babysitters now and again, but we don’t have nannies,” he told PEOPLE.
