Alexis Bledel’s fans were more than just stunned when the news of her childbirth broke out. 

Alexis and her husband, actor Vincent Kartheiser, had kept their pregnancy a complete secret, which was spilled by actor Scott Patterson (Bledel’s co-star from Gilmore Girls) during an interview with Glamour magazine.

In the interview, Patterson said, “She’s really blossomed as a woman and now she’s a proud new mother and married and happy.” During the conversation with Glamour, Patterson also stated that his son (born. July 2014) is a year and a half older than Alexis’ son. Thus, the kid must be approx. a year old at present.

Alexis and Vincent have still not revealed any information about the child. They have not shared a single image of their son; not even his name.

Not only the baby but their wedding was also a secret. They got married in a quiet ceremony in California in June 2014. Their relationship was kept out of media’s sight since after announcing their engagement in March 2013.

Alexis began dating Vincent in 2012 after meeting him on the set of Mad Men. Prior to this, she was in a long-term relationship with Milo Ventimiglia, her co-star from Gilmore Girls.
