Outlander star Caitriona Balfe has spoken out about the “crazies” amongst Outlander’s passionate fanbase. The new mum says some of her followers are so convinced she’s in a real life relationship with on screen other half Sam Heughan, she's determined to maintain some privacy for her child.

Caitriona, 42, opened up about the conspiracy theories of a sliver of “obsessed” fans who think Scots hunk Sam is the father of her three-month-old baby.

The actress, who married Scottish music manager Anthony McGill in 2019, revealed one social media user posted that the baby must be Heughan’s because the bedsheets in the picture which announced the tot's arrival were similar to ones that have been spotted in his house.And she claims she’s gotten wind that private investigators have been hired to “solve” the case and prove definitively that she’s involved with Heughan.
