Paparazzi are around every corner in Hollywood, so keeping something a secret is nearly impossible for celebrities. For obvious reasons, pregnancy is one of the most challenging things to hide. However, some stars managed to avoid being photographed with a baby bump and only let everyone know after they’d already given birth. It is a wonder that they manage to keep their baby bumps under wraps for nine months.
For example, Barbara Bush and her husband Craig Coyne gave birth to her first child, and nobody outside of her family and close friends knew the secret. When their daughter was born, they were delighted to announce the birth of their child.
