In this pandemic world – where celebrities have been kept indoors – it’s not entirely unbelievable that someone could hide a pregnancy. It still, however, doesn’t make it any less shocking. (Kylie Jenner managed it even in the free-roaming world.) According to The Daily Mail, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have welcomed their second child – a baby boy – to their family.
The new addition joins their first son Silas, born in April 2015. The publication is reporting that Biel, 38, and Timberlake, 39, and their family are staying in Big Sky in Montana with Beil’s mother.
We will keep you up to date with any further details. Congratulations to the couple for both keeping the news under wraps and on their newborn son.
In the interim, here’s slew of celebrities who have successfully had secret babies!
Eva Mendes: TMZ snapped a photo of Eva Mendes just two weeks before she gave birth, her tummy hidden by a strategically placed oversized handbag. According to the website, who obtained a copy of the birth certificate, Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s second daughter Amada Lee Gosling was born on April 29 at 8.03am in 2016 at Providence St. John’s Health Centre in Santa Monica. This was not the first time the couple, who have been dating since 2011, have fooled us though. The actress managed to hide her first pregnancy with first daughter Esmeralda for seven months.
Beyoncé: At five months pregnant with daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé revealed to the world she was expecting during a live performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
Adele: The only voice who can rival Beyoncé (and her sales figures), English singer Adele successfully hid her pregnancy for seven months despite attending red carpet award shows. Her son, Angelo, was born in October 2012 to (now ex) partner and charity owner Simon Konecki.
Isla Fisher: Worried her Burke and Hare castmates might think she was bulimic given her morning sickness was so bad, Fisher tried to conceal her pregnancy with second daughter Elula in 2010. She even secretly unlaced her corset between takes!
Jennifer Garner: Already parents to Violet, Garner concealed the fact she was expecting her second daughter, Serophina, with then-husband Ben Affleck while (aptly) filming The Invention Of Lying in 2009.
Claire Danes: The actor managed to keep her happy news under wraps while filming the second season of Homeland. And then, when the secret was finally out, producers worked overtime to conceal her bump with CGI trickery. Her son Cyrus was born in December 2012.
Lucille Ball: Even in 1951, on-set pregnancies were silenced. The I Love Lucy actress was heavily pregnant and in those days, airing such a thing was not looked upon fondly. Ball’s bulging belly was strategically hidden behind counters and under aprons. Many have questioned if this decision set a precedent for actresses being made to conceal their pregnancies decades on. But just one year later, Ball was expecting her second child and the producers wrote it into the script. It paid off too. The birth scene grabbed 44 million viewers.
