Since the birth of her son three years ago, Mexican actress Erika Buenfil has remained mum on the identity of her son Nicolas‘ father. Now — in what Erika is calling a breech of her son’s privacy — talk show host Ines Gomez Mont, from the show Ventaneando, has announced on-air that the boy’s father is indeed architect Ernesto Zedillo Jr., the son of Mexico’s ex-president, Ernesto Zedillo. Ines claims that she is close friends with Ernesto and his wife, Rebeca Saenz, and had been given their permission to make the announcement.

Erika, who has since confirmed that Ernesto is her son’s father, is extremely upset that her son’s private life has been made public without her consent. Up until this point, there had been an agreement between Erika, 43, and Ernesto that they would not discuss their relationship or any other aspects of their private life together — including Nicolas.

Erika shared that her relationship with Ernesto lasted for two months in 2004, but when she was eight months pregnant, Ernesto married Rebeca. Ernesto and Rebeca now have two daughters together.
