Caitriona Balfe Reveals the Lengths a 'Sliver of Fans' Have Gone to Romantically Link Her with Sam Heughan

Caitriona Balfe, who is married to Scottish music manager Anthony McGill, is speaking a bit about her personal life and having to keep her new son largely out of the spotlight because of a “sliver of fans” who think she’s romantically involved with her Outlander co-star Sam Heughan.

In her cover story with Vanity Fair, the writer explained, “These stans have conspiracy theories, including one positing that her baby is Heughan’s because the bedsheets in the baby picture look similar to ones seen in a photo Heughan has posted. Balfe says that after she married her husband…she found out that someone had called to harass the secretary of the church where the wedding took place; they didn’t believe her marriage was real. She’s also gotten wind that private investigators have been hired to ‘solve’ the case and prove definitively that she’s involved with Heughan.”

Caitriona explained, “When you have a kid, you become really protective. I don’t want those crazies—because that’s what they are—I just don’t want them talking about him. It’s sad, because you meet the loveliest people who are fans of the show and they’re super supportive and they do the nicest things—and then you have that little thing, which just taints it.”

Caitriona is getting major awards season buzz for her work in Belfast, and she could land an Oscar nomination if the stars align!
