Top 10 Celebrities Tried To Hide Pregnancies | Pregnancies That Broke The Internet: Reasons & Detail

Whether or not you see the value in it, there is little question that celebrities often have their lives get covered by members of the paparazzi. Because while it may not seem like interesting news that Ariel Winter decided to go to the grocery store, that isn't going to stop photographers from seemingly stalking her every move.

The amount of attention that female celebrities receive tends to get magnified even more whenever news emerges that they are expecting a child. Something that becomes an even bigger deal if both the father and mother are celebrities. Which also means that if the female celebrity was already annoyed by the amount of attention she received, that having her also be expecting may just be adding fuel to the fire. So it's no question as to why so many celebrities - like Kylie Jenner - will do all they can to keep some elements of their life secret from the paparazzi. Though the fact that these celebrities kept their pregnancy (or news of an impending adoption) secret, is truly something that is amazing.
But just because some celebrities enjoy keeping a sense of privacy to them, doesn't mean they all do. There are also 10 celebrities on our list who have been very open about the journey their body has gone through with pregnancy. And in doing so, perhaps you also will realize that they are human just like us and may find some commonality in their struggles!

These are 10 Pregnancies That Broke The Internet (10 Where The Celeb Tried To Hide It).

10- Karla Souza
Birth Name: Karla Olivares Souza
Age: 32, born 11 December 1985
Country of origin:  Mexico
Currently Residing In:  United States
Height: 5' 4"
Relationship Status: Married
Partner: Marshall Trenkmann
Karla Souza has been on How to Get Away With Murder but she also knows how to get away with being pregnant without the tabloid news finding out about it! Souza seemed to be more than happy to talk about her pregnancy when she first took to Instagram to say.

"So I have something to share with you guys 😉 Tengo algo que compartirles.” But maybe she just wanted to show off just how stealthy she can be because it was only moments later that Karla shared a photo of her nuzzling her newborn along with the caption

“God blessed us Dios nos bendijo.”

9- Sandra Bullock
Birth Name: Sandra Annette Bullock
Age: 54, born 26 July 1964
Country of origin:  United States
Height: 5' 7"
Relationship Status: Single
Sandra Bullock was going through a lot of change in her personal life back in 2010, including the fact that she was separating from her husband Jesse James. But the most important thing for her was the adoption of a baby boy, Louis, of whom she was amazed she could adopt without the tabloid news getting wind of it.

"I don't know how we got away with it...We only told a handful of family and friends, and it then became their mission to make sure Louis was safe and happy and had everything he needed," said Bullock in an interview with People.

8- Laura Linney
Birth Name: Laura Leggett Linney
Age: 54, born 5 February 1964
Country of origin:  United States
Height: 5' 7"
Laura Linney was ecstatic to know she was pregnant, but being 49 years old, she knew there were risks that came with it.
“Well, I was an older mother-to-be, and it had taken me a very long time to have a child. I wanted to make sure that my child actually arrived, and was safe and healthy. I just was very quiet about it — I didn’t hide it intentionally, I just didn’t advertise it. So it was the right thing for me and my family," said Linney.

Though Linney did joke that she didn't explicitly hide her pregnancy, "I just didn’t [hold up] a sign that said, ‘Hi, I’m pregnant now.’”

7- Zoe Saldana
Birth Name: Zoe Yadira Saldaña Nazario
Age: 40, born 19 June 1978
Born and residing in:  United States
Height: 5' 6"
Relationship Status: Married
Partner: Marco Perego
Zoe Saldana has had many amazing movies in her career, but nothing will perhaps ever come close to the impact that the Marvel Universe has had. But if you want to consider things that have impacted her away from the set, you'd have to factor in her new son (and 3rd child, as well as her 3rd boy) who Saldana gave birth to back in February 2017. News that came as a huge surprise to tabloid news who were not aware that she had an impending bundle of joy. Saldana was less secretive the first time she was pregnant with twins as it was reported that she gained 70 pounds.

6- Anna Kournikova
Birth Name: Anna Sergeyevna Kournikova
Age: 37, born 7 June 1981
Country of origin:  Russian Federation
Currently Residing In:  United States
Height: 5' 8"
Relationship Status: In a relationship
Partner: Enrique Iglesias
As you saw earlier on this list, Serena Williams also earned a spot on our list for someone who embraced her pregnancy. But another tennis player on our list, Anna Kournikova, took a very different approach. She and her husband, famed musician Enrique Iglesias managed to keep the news that they had twins on the way a secret all the way until they announced their arrival. They were born back on December 16th, 2017. I'm sure that if he is ever struggling to think of something to sing about for a future album that his children will serve as great inspiration for Iglesias.

5- Kylie Jenner
Birth Name: Kylie Kristen Jenner
Age: 21, born 10 August 1997
Born and residing in:  United States
Height: 5' 6"
Relationship Status: In a relationship
Partner: Travis Scott
Kylie Jenner is used to her life being covered by tabloid journalists. Which means something like hiding her pregnancy may have seemed like an impossible task for someone who has as big a stature in society as Kylie, though she did pull it off.

When she did finally break the news, it was on Instagram with the message,

"I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how."

4- Lucy Liu
Birth Name: Lucy Alexis Liu
Age: 49, born 2 December 1968
Born and residing in:  United States
Height: 5' 3"
Relationship Status: Single
There is no question that celebrities are people who can very often have a very busy schedule, such as Lucy Liu who stars on the television show Elementary. It was because of her hectic timetable that Lucy Liu elected to have a child via gestational surrogacy.

“It just seemed like the right option for me because I was working and I didn’t know when I was going to be able to stop. I decided that was probably the best solution for me, and it turned out to be great," said Liu when discussing the matter. She also went on to talk about how surprised she was at how quickly babies develop.

3- Alexis Bledel
Birth Name: Kimberly Alexis Bledel
Age: 37, born 16 September 1981
Born and residing in:  United States
Height: 5' 7"
Relationship Status: Married
Partner: Vincent Kartheiser
Alexis Bledel may be best recognized for her role on Gilmore Girls. Or her current role on the hit television show, The Handmaid's Tale. But one thing you did not see was Bledel rocking a baby bump. She and her husband, Vincent Kartheiser avoided letting the world know both she was both expecting and had given birth to a son. It was her co-star on Gilmour Girls Scott Patterson that let the news slip saying to Glamour,

“She’s really blossomed as a woman and now she’s a proud new mother and married and happy. We’re comparing notes because my son [born July 2014] is about a year and a half older than her young son."

2- Charlize Theron
Birth Name: Charlize Theron
Age: 43, born 7 August 1975
Country of origin:  South Africa
Currently Residing In:  United States
Height: 5' 10"
Relationship Status: Single
Charlize Theron has known her entire life that she wanted to adopt a child. But that doesn't mean she was open about it to the general public. When talking about the process that she went through in a past interview.

Theron stated, "Adoption is a very personal thing—I know people whom I love dearly who don’t feel that they could raise another child as their own. I respect that. But for me—and I can’t be the only person out there—I never saw a difference in raising an adopted child versus my own biological child. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on something."

1- Isla Fisher

Birth Name: Isla Lang Fisher
Age: 42, born 3 February 1976
Country of origin:  Oman
Currently Residing In:  United States
Height: 5' 3"
Relationship Status: Married
Partner: Sacha Baron Cohen
Isla Fisher managed to continue working hard at her job on the set of Burke & Hare despite being pregnant. She managed to fool the entire cast and crew, including co-star Simon Pegg, who when asked about it said,

"I didn't know what was going on. She didn't look pregnant until the last minute. I saw her a couple of months later and she was like a balloon. None of us knew, not even John knew. She hid it well."

I'm sure Fisher will take it as a compliment to her work ethic that she was able to keep something like that a secret. And perhaps it will even give you a deeper appreciation of her role in the movie!
