Who was Marilyn Monroe's father?

Marilyn Monroe’s biological father was never officially confirmed. Her mother, Gladys Pearl Baker, was mentally ill and struggled with addiction, which made it difficult for her to provide a stable home environment for Marilyn. Gladys married multiple times, and there were several men who were rumored to be Marilyn’s biological father. Some of the potential candidates include Charles Stanley Gifford, Edward Mortensen, and C. Stanley Gifford. However, due to the lack of definitive evidence, it remains a mystery who Marilyn’s biological father truly was. Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926, in Los Angeles, California.
