Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova are not the only stealthy stars in Hollywood!
On the heels of the unexpected news that the longtime low-key pair welcomed twins over the weekend, fans are questioning everything they thought they knew about the couple—and just life in general. After all, to keep a pregnancy completely secret for nine months is quite a feat, particularly for a high-profile pair like this one.
However, they are not the first celebrities to keep their baby news under wraps. From Eva Mendes to Lucy Liu, a handful of famous moms and dads have managed to keep the arrival of their little ones a surprise in the months leading up to their births—and for some, even months afterward. Read about some of those discreet stars below:
As the king and queen of stealth pregnancy, Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have managed to keep the news of both of their daughters' births impressively under wraps. As they rarely ever share details about their personal life to begin with, news of the actress' first pregnancy didn't break until she was already seven months along. As for the second pregnancy, reporters found out Mendes was expecting again less than two weeks before she gave birth—except, the world didn't find out she actually gave birth until the next month.
The Oscar nominee may have been able to keep her second pregnancy a complete surprise had photographers not snapped her outside of a restaurant in London with a noticeable baby bump, less than three months before giving birth.

News broke of the actress' first birth in May 2016, months after the star secretly welcomed a son in the fall. In fact, fans found out thanks to her Gilmore Girls co-star, Scott Patterson, who happened to unknowingly spill the beans to Glamour ahead of the upcoming Netflix revival of the WB series.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star took fans entirely by surprise when she announced her and her husband Marco Perego had welcomed a third son, considering the two had not revealed beforehand that they were expecting again.

"We couldn't feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys... oh boy!"

In [love]," she captioned a shot of herself cradling her newborn baby. A rep for the actress later told E! News, "I can confirm that Lucy Liu is the proud mother of Rockwell Lloyd Liu, brought into the world via gestational carrier."

After speaking publicly about her fertility struggles in previous years, the supermodel surprisingly announced in January 2016 that she had officially become a mom.

As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone.
