Well, now we know whom to invite into our circle of trust: Ellen Pompeo.
The Grey's Anatomy star is really good at keeping secrets - to the tune of welcoming a baby last month and revealing it on social media just this Thursday. Pompeo, 44, welcomed daughter Sienna May with music producer husband Chris Ivery, 46.
"Sienna May Ivery welcome to the world," Pompeo captioned a black and white Instagram of the newborn being kissed on the cheek by her proud dad. "We love you more than words can say."
We bet you didn't even know the actress was pregnant - which is probably because she wasn't.
"Sienna was born via surrogate & I would like to thank my whole @ShondalandTV family for helping us enjoy these first few weeks privately," Pompeo tweeted, crediting Grey's boss Shonda Rhimes and colleagues for staying mum.
The new bundle of joy joins big sister Stella Luna, 5. The couple kept the little one's arrival completely under wraps, just like their 2007 wedding during which they quietly exchanged vows at City Hall in Manhattan with Mayor Michael Bloomberg serving as their witness. A couple years later, they welcomed baby Stella.
"It's a huge lifestyle change, and I take that very seriously," the ABC star told Allure. "[Chris and I] enjoy our life so much. We go to Europe and sleep in. So when I have the baby, I won't feel like we've missed any fun, reckless times together, like staying up all night drinking champagne and having sex until five in the morning and not having to get up until two in the afternoon."
Ah, motherhood. The great equalizer.
