8 Celebrities Who Were Really Good at Keeping Their Pregnancies a Secret

8 Celebrities Who Were Really Good at Keeping Their Pregnancies a Secret

I can’t speak for everyone, but I was so excited to be pregnant that I virtually told everyone the minute I found out! My parents and family first, all my friends next, then it was my co-workers, anyone I happened to run into down the shops, the lady at the bakery, complete strangers… what can I say, I wanted to tell the whole world!

Not everyone is like me though, and a lot of people choose to keep their pregnancies a secret from the outside world. That can be an almost impossible task if you are a celebrity, even if you are going the surrogate route!

Here are 8 celebrities who managed to keep the arrival of their newest bundles of joy a secret until well after they had arrived.

1. Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling managed to keep both of their pregnancies a secret until almost full time. The private couple welcomed daughters Esmeralda and Amada with very little fanfare.

Isla Fisher and hubby Sacha Baron Cohen can be notoriously secretive when it comes to their pregnancies, with neither confirmations nor denials abounding throughout. They share three children and prefer to keep their family life private from nosy onlookers, which we love.
