Baby No-Show? Here’s Why These Celebrities Chose to HIDE Their Babies from Us

Some celebrities tend to publicize their pregnancies to the point where they seem to share every OB/GYN appointment with the world at large. But there are also the very secretive, stealthy, black-ops parents who believe that it is possible to keep a secret about their kids in Hollywood. We understand why they do it, though. Of course, they would like their children growing up without the world staring at their every move, while they continue to do normal kid things. But some stars in our lists didn’t even make a public announcement when they were preggers or even deliver a baby. Check out these super-secretive celebs who would like to keep their kids out of the limelight…

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling

Gosling and Mendes succeeded in keeping her first pregnancy hidden for seven months with no official announcement when daughter Esmeralda Amada was born in September 2014. Later in November, Mendes reluctantly had a low-key interview about motherhood. The couple also kept the impending birth of their second daughter Amada Lee, a secret almost until her birth. At a press conference for The Nice Guys, Gosling confirmed being the father of two daughters, devoid of fanfare. During his 2017 Golden Globes acceptance speech, he thanked Mendes and his daughters.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys

Sources told various media outlets that The Americans costars’ were expecting their first child. Russell’s pregnancy was confirmed by co-star Noah Emmerich, when the show had to shoot around her bump. The low-key couple did not publicize their impending baby, with nobody checking in to see when it actually arrived. Only when Rhys and Russell were spotted with their newborn in Brooklyn, the low-key, stealth baby parent’s silent message to the paparazzi was that this was all the news they would ever get.

Sandra Bullock

In January 2010, prior to Bullock’s awards avalanche thanks to her movie The Blind Side, which got her the Best Actress Oscar Award , she didn’t make too much of a fuss and adopted a son, who she later named Louis. In December of 2015, Sandra disclosed that she had already adopted the second time around, but a daughter, this time.

Adam Brody and Leighton Meester

When it was finally discovered that Adam Brody, best known for playing the character of Seth Cohen from TV’s The O.C, was dating Leighton Meester or Blair Waldorf from the drama series Gossip Girl, fans just took for granted that it was a match made in teen soap heaven. The couple was extremely private since the very beginning and eventually when marriage was on the cards, they tried to be very hush-hush about it. Then, out of nowhere Meester appeared publicly with a definite baby bump during May 2015, sending the tabloids and press rushing to confirm the baby rumor. Even today, the birth certificate is the only proof that Arlo Day Brody actually exists, although the paparazzi did manage to click some photos of the kid when the family was hiking together.

Simon Konecki and Adele

Adele was slightly more open about her pregnancy than the other celebrities on this list. She announced her pregnancy in a blog in June 2012 and requested for privacy at this precious time, to stave off intense speculation and months of invasive paparazzi. She quietly dropped out of the public eye for most of her pregnancy. An anonymous source informed the press about her son’s birth.
