So the news today is that Scandal star gave birth to her and husband Nnamdi Asomugha first child together, daughter, Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha TWO WEEKS AGO on April 21.
Figures though, right? She never told anyone she was engaged, never publicly acknowledged she was married before getting hitched and so this makes sense to conceal this news about the birth at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, that TMZ uncovered today.
She would not be the first to attempt to just keep it all hush hush.
Actress Neve Campbell never announced when she birthed her first child with hubby JJ Feild in August 2012 until paparazzi captured the family at a park and the baby looked to be about a month old!
Later that year, Megan Fox waited almost a month to announce in October that she had given birth in mid September.
But singer Dido takes the cake! The British crooner welcomed her first child in the summer of 2011 but didn’t mention a baby until 6 months later in a tweet in December that year! We hypothesized that maybe it was our query that perhaps prompted the UK Daily Mail to inquire.
And of male stars, actor Michael Ealy randomly mentioned during an interview on the Steve Harvey show this February that he and his wife of two years had a kid. And the kid is like a few years old.
Same deal with singer Pharell and his wife, Helen. We only recently started seeing pics of his son Rocket Man who is now 5 years old.
Not just births either.
Jennifer Hudson never revealed she was pregnant ever. A wayward cameraman accidentally discovered it when she was about 8 months along.
Same deal with actress Evageline Lily. She too was hiding away in Hawaii to avoid the prodding press when she got busted in her 7 or 8th month trying to avoid the “bumpwatch!”
Adele, Megan Fox, Drew Barrymore and January Jones all never confirmed their pregnancies either until their news leaked when they were well into their pregnancies.
And Now you know it’s not that unheard of that some celebs actually value privacy in these matters. Ha!
Please H/T if you share!
