Celebrity Baby Secrets Spilled: Celebrities Who Tried To Keep Their Babies A Secret (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 08/29/11 01:14 PM ET   Updated: 10/29/11 06:12 AM ET

It's hard enough trying to keep a pregnancy under wraps, but when you're a celebrity it's nearly impossible. Some go the Beyonce route, and proudly flaunt their baby bump on national television, while some prefer to keep their bumps away from the paparazzi--that is, until someone accidentally (or purposefully) spills the beans.

For example, take what happened to Angelina Jolie when she was pregnant with twins Knox and Vivienne. On a promo tour for "Kung Fu Panda," her funnyman co-star Jack Black let Jolie's pregnancy news slip at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. How did that happen, you ask? Well, you see, it was an honest mistake.

And just last week, proud grandpa Rod Stewart innocently revealed the name of his first grandchild--Kimberly Stewart and Benicio Del Toro's newborn daughter Delilah.

While it's hard to imagine getting mad at an elated grandfather for sharing his joy with the world, sometimes even the media will stop at nothing to reveal a celebrity's most hidden secret.

Here are some examples of more celebrities who have had their baby secrets spilled.

  • Angelina Jolie

    While promoting their film, "Kung Fu Panda," at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008, Jack Black accidentally told the world that Angelina Jolie was pregnant with twins. Oops!

  • Jennifer Lopez

    Man, exes always seem to ruin everything! In 2007, actor and choreographer Cris Judd confirmed to both US Magazine and People that his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez was expecting her first child with then-husband Marc Anthony.

  • Mariah Carey

    Actress Thandie Newton spilled the beans during an appearance on "The View" when she let it be known that she had gotten her role in "For Colored Girls" because of Mariah's pregnancy.

  • John Edwards

    In 2007, the <em>National Enquirer</em> broke the news that Edwards had fathered a daughter with his former campaign videographer. But it wasn't until 2010 that Edwards publicly admitted that <a href="" target="_hplink">he was baby Quinn's father</a>.

  • Hilarie Burton

    Let's call this the most secretive pregnancy in Hollywood history. Just two weeks after going public with their romance, E! News revealed that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and "One Tree Hill's" Hilarie Burton also welcomed a baby boy. In 2009, Burton wasn't photographed for nine months. Now that's some serious secrecy.

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger

    In 2011, former California Gov. Schwarzenegger acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff after the <a href=",0,312678.story" target="_hplink">Los Angeles Times broke the story</a>. For at least 10 years, Schwarzenegger managed to keep his secret safe.

  • Pink

    Before Pink announced her pregnancy on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," her baby news was spoiled by someone else. "Hey, Pink, I'm sooooo happy for you lady!!! Congrats on baby!!" wrote Good Day L.A. co-host <a href="!/askjillian" target="_hplink">Jillian Barberie Reynolds on her Twitter page.</a> "Ps. You know your man whispered it to us at dinner. See I CAN keep a secret!!" Actually, Jillian, it looks like you couldn't keep a secret.

  • Liv Tyler

    Leave it to Liv to spoil her family's secret. Liv grew up thinking that rock star Todd Rundgren was her father. But as she was growing up, rocker Steven Tyler began dropping by to visit, and Liv noticed that his daughter Mia Tyler looked enough like her to be her twin. She then confronted her mother, and was told the truth; by the time she was 12, she had taken her father's name. Not even Nancy Drew is that good!

  • François-Henri Pinault

    Salma Hayek has been married to her very wealthy husband, François-Henri Pinault, for two years. But around the time they met in 2006, Pinault was also seeing model Linda Evangelista--and he ended up fathering both Hayek's and Evangelista's children--who happen to both be 4-years-old. Awkward.

  • Isla Fisher

    Isla Fisher and husband Sacha Baron Cohen can certainly keep a secret. The couple had their second baby last August (2010), and have yet to publicly reveal what they named the little girl--that is, until <a href="" target="_hplink">Us Weekly unearthed the name</a>: Elula Lottie Miriam Cohen.

  • Katie Holmes

    After many months of speculation Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise finally announced they were expecting their first child together although they still kept their due date quiet.

  • Jennifer Garner revealed that she and Ben Affleck are expecting their third child together. Garner was thought be pregnant for some time before she confirmed the news as she was spotted out with what looked to be a growing baby bump.

  • Mariah Carey

    Mariah Carey finally confirmed that she and husband, Nick Cannon, were expecting in an interview with Access Hollywood. There had been a lot of buzz about a possible pregnancy before the couple confirmed the news. Little did everyone know, there wouldn't be just one baby for Mariah and Nick, the couple gave birth to twins in April 2011.
