Here's How Far Blake Lively Went to Hide Her Baby News

We all know that some celebrities (like Kristen Bell and Eva Mendes) are notoriously private about their births and their babies. But turns out that Blake Lively is also a super secret baby news keeper (in addition to being a super secret wedding news keeper).

Not only has she kept mum about her baby's gender (though sources report its most likely a girl) and baby's name, she also kept her birth a secret from close friends, including Amber Tamblyn

Tamblyn, one of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars Lively stayed in touch with, didn't know that Lively had given birth -- until after meeting the baby in a surprising way. The "Two-and-a-Half Men" actress recently shared with People, "She tricked me! She was texting me about wallpaper, she was like, 'You gotta come see my new wallpaper,' and I went up there, and there was her baby."

Tamblyn laughed that everyone knew except for her but holds no grudges. She's now an auntie and godmother to the baby, and did her duty by gushing appropriately -- while still keeping details about the baby under wraps.
