Who Was Marilyn Monroe’s Father?

Edward Mortenson Stanley Gifford

Marilyn’s paternity remains an issue of debate to this day. The two main candidates are Gladys’ second husband, Edward Mortenson, who was listed as the father on Norma Jeane’s birth certificate, and Stanley Gifford, a co-worker of Gladys’ with whom she apparently had an affair around the time of Norma Jeane’s conception. Several other men have been suggested as candidates, but these two remain the most commonly debated. Marilyn herself believed Gifford to be her father, having been shown a picture of the man as a child by her mother and told “this is your father”. Her attempts to contact Gifford over the years were rebuffed.
