Monster mom Casey Anthony has never revealed the identity of the man who fathered her now-late daughter, Caylee. But in a bombshell interview with RadarOnline.com 10 years after the toddler’s remains were found, Donna Maclean claims she still believes her late son is the secret baby daddy. On December 11, 2008, 2-year-old Caylee’s remains were discovered by a meter reader in a Florida swamp overgrown with weeds. Casey was later accused of the tot’s death and her murder trial became a nationwide controversy overnight. Donna told Radar that it wasn’t until the end of the trial that she realized her son, Michael Duggan, was likely the baby daddy of America’s most hated mom. Click through the gallery to see shocking photos of the man believed to be Caylee Anthony’s real father.

Casey Anthony gave birth to Caylee Marie Anthony on August 9, 2005. To this day, Casey has never revealed who Caylee’s father is. Former friends of the monster mom described her as a “pathological liar” who probably had no idea who the father was.
Other ex-friends and roommates of Casey’s remembered one hint she dropped about the mystery baby daddy: she claimed he died in a car accident.
Donna Maclean, a Massachusetts resident, claimed that her son, Michael, shown here as a toddler, once called to let her know he fathered a baby girl with a woman named Casey Anthony.
Donna claimed Michael met Casey while he was living in Winter Park, Florida. Years later, in 2007, the alleged baby daddy died in a car accident.
It wasn’t until Donna began watching Casey’s highly-publicized murder trial and saw little Caylee’s face flashing on the screen that a light bulb went off in her head. Donna realized her son could, in fact, be Caylee’s father. “I was google searching and I read that Caylee’s father died out of state in 2007. I thought, that’s when Mike died,” Donna told Radar.
Donna saw a resemblance in Caylee’s round face and smile to her son’s, shown here. While watching news coverage of Caylee’s death, Donna said, “I could hear Mike saying, ‘Casey, Caylee, George, Cindy,’ and I’m looking at the television and it all dawned on me. I thought, oh my god, that’s my granddaughter.”
Here, the late toddler is getting into a pool that appears to have been at Cindy and George Anthony’s Florida home. Donna claimed she once received a phone call from her son and the caller ID read, “George Anthony.”
Despite believing she is Caylee’s grandmother, Donna said she had never been introduced to Casey or Caylee.
Donna said she’s lived “for years” believing her son was Caylee’s father. “I’ve never stopped believing and I wish I could move on but I don’t got closure,” Donna told Radar.
As Radar readers know, Casey was found not guilty of first-degree murder and manslaughter charges in Caylee’s death.
