It's definitely the new trend for celebrities to keep their pregnancies COMPLETE secrets at the moment. Exhibit A: Cheryl Tweedy keeping her pregnancy with Bear under wraps (sort of). Exhibit B: Kylie Jenner also sort of hiding away her pregnancy with little Stormi.

However, Hollywood star Rachel McAdams did actually keep her pregnancy completely secret, and didn't even admit that she'd had her baby until NOW - seven months after having her little boy with her screenwriter partner Jamie Linden in April.

Despite both being pictured with a baby earlier this year - Jamie was spotted carrying a baby into a restaurant and Rachel was seen carrying a little'un on her hip - neither party has addressed the situation before.

Now, in an interview with The Sunday Times, the Mean Girls actress has not only confirmed the existence of her son, but also opened up about motherhood too. Calling it "the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me, hands down," 39-year-old Rachel revealed it had been the "right time" to have a baby.

"People say your life is not your own anymore. But I had 39 years of me, I was sick of me. I was so happy to put the focus on some other person. I waited a long time for motherhood.

"I’m having more fun being a mum than I’ve ever had. Everything about it is interesting and exciting and inspiring to me. Even the tough days – there’s something delightful about them."

Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West welcomed their third child via a surrogate in January. The couple later confirmed they've called her Chicago West.

Rachel even admitted that she wouldn't rule out having another baby, but did confirm that she wouldn't be sharing any photos of her children online as she values her privacy too much, confessing that she doesn't know "how social media works."

Congratulations to the family!
