9 Secret Celeb Births (So Far) from 2019

Oh, 2019, you’ve been so good to us. As the end of a decade approaches, we wanted to take a look back at all the celebrity and entertainment news the past year had to offer.

Secret weddings and pregnancy news soon gave way to the headline-grabbing mashup we never knew we’d love to read about: secret celebrity births. From Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds to Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, these are the celebs who welcomed children this year, totally under the radar.

1. blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds

Perhaps the most shocking of the year so far was the mystery baby born to parents Lively and Reynolds. Just five months after the Gossip Girl alum debuted her baby bump, Us Weekly confirmed in October 2019 that she and her husband had welcomed baby number three over the summer. To top it off, we still don’t have an official announcement or a name.

2. ellie Kemper And Michael Koman

The Office alum debuted her second son in an Instagram post four weeks after his birth. “Happy 1-month birthday to our baby boy, Matthew!” the actress captioned an Instagram post in October. “He has inherited his dad’s brown hair and his mom’s desire to be carried around all day in a baby sling.”

OK, so technically this one wasn’t born in 2019, but that’s when the announcement was made. In September, the It actor revealed to Steven Colbert that he had an 11-month-old daughter whose nursery was filled with Pennywise the Clown toys. We’re serious.

4. ryan Lewis And Jackie Ganger

The singer and his wife welcomed their daughter, Ramona Rae, in June 2019 and introduced her to their Instagram followers the following month. “Still debating on her nickname being Mona or Romy, what do you think?!” We voted Romy, obviously.
