Some celebrities tend to advertise their pregnancies to the point that they seem to share every OB / GYN date with the world at large. But there are also the very secretive, secretive, black parents who believe it is possible to hide a secret about their children in Hollywood. We do understand, however, why they do it. Of course, they would like their children to grow up without the world staring at their movements while they continue to do normal childish things. But some stars on our lists didn’t even make a public announcement when they were worshipers or even gave birth to a baby. Take a look at these top secret celebrities who would like to keep their kids out of fame …
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling
Gosling and Mendes managed to hide their first pregnancy for seven months without an official announcement, when daughter Esmeralda Amada was born in September 2014. Later in November, Mendes reluctantly had a short interview about motherhood. The couple also kept the imminent birth of their second daughter Amada Lee, a secret almost until her birth. At a press conference for The Beautiful Guys, Gosling confirmed to be the father of two daughters, without fanfare. During his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes in 2017, he thanked Mendes and his daughters.
Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys
Sources told various media outlets that The Americans co-stars were expecting their first child. Russell’s pregnancy was confirmed by co-star Noah Emmerich, when the show was to shoot around her bump. The moderate couple did not disclose their impending baby, and no one checked to see when it actually arrived. It was only when Rhys and Russell spotted their newborn in Brooklyn that the silent, secret baby parent’s message to the spy reporters was that this was all the news they would ever receive.
In January 2010, ahead of Bullock’s award-winning avalanche thanks to her film The Blind Side, who received her the Oscar for Best Actress, she was not too fussy and adopted a son, whom she later named Louis. In December 2015, Sandra revealed that she had already adopted the second time, but a daughter, this time.
Adam Brody and Leighton Meester
When it was finally discovered that Adam Brody, best known for the role of Seth Cohen of TV The OC, fell in love with Leighton Meester or Blair Waldorf from the drama series Gossip girl, fans just took for granted that it was a match made in a teen soap bar. The couple was extremely private from the very beginning and finally when a wedding was on the cards, they tried to be very straightforward about it. Then, out of nowhere Meester appeared in public with a definite baby during May 2015, sending out the gossip magazines and pressing to hurry to confirm the baby’s fame. Even today, the birth certificate is the only proof that Arlo Day Brody actually exists, even though the spy journalists managed to snap some photos of the child as the family walked together.
Simon Konecki and Adele
Adele was a little more candid about her pregnancy than the other celebrities on this list. She announced her pregnancy on a blog in June 2012 and asked for privacy at this valuable time, to avoid intense speculation and months of penetrating spy journalists. She quietly left the public eye for most of her pregnancy. An anonymous source informed the press of the birth of her son.
