Some stars are way too good at keeping secrets. Alexis Bledel welcomed her first child into the world in 2015 and we've only just found out, thanks to her 'Gilmore Girls' co-star Scott Patterson. It's not clear whether she was deliberately keeping it all under wraps, or if she just forget to tell us.

At least we know now. The 34-year-old TV star gave birth to a baby boy in the Fall having fallen pregnant by her husband, 37-year-old Vincent Kartheiser. A representative for the star has confirmed the news to People magazine, after the news broke in Glamour recently during an interview with Scott Patterson.

'She's really blossomed as a woman and now she's a proud new mother and married and happy', he said, talking about the 'Gilmore Girls' re-boot on Netflix. 'She's just the most likable, intelligent person and adorable human being. She hasn't changed at all. She looks the same. We're comparing notes because my son is about a year and a half older than her young son. I'm showing her photos and videos and what to expect. We're just really enjoying each other's company.'

It's not the first time Bledel has been super-secretive about her personal life. After meeting actor Vincent Kartheiser while filming 'Mad Men' in 2012, they weren't shy about coming clean about their relationship but we heard nothing of their life together until they announced their engagement the following year. They even managed to keep the wedding hushed up until afterwards in June 2014.

Congratulations Alexis and Vincent! We have so many questions; what's baby Bledel's name, for a start? And can we be expecting any more bundles of joy? Unfortunately, a representative for the couple have chosen not to release any more information. And why should they? First-time parenthood is a precious time for anybody, and they've chosen to enjoy it in private as a couple.
