Surprise! Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel Had a Baby in Secret
There are those celebs who are totally open with the public about their pregnancy (Anne Hathaway and Chrissy Teigen, we’re looking at you), and then there are those who keep it a very well-kept secret. Just last week, info was leaked that has led us to believe Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have already welcomed their second baby, and now it’s been revealed that Gilmore Girls‘ Alexis Bledel is also a new mom.
In a recent interview with Glamour, Scott Patterson (AKA Luke from Gilmore Girls) accidentally spilled the beans about Alexis’ pregnancy. He told the magazine, “[Alexis has] really blossomed as a woman and now she’s a proud new mother and married and happy. I remember her as an 18-year-old kid, fresh out of college coming into Hollywood and being a little overwhelmed. She’s just the most likable, intelligent person and adorable human being. She hasn’t changed at all. She looks the same. We’re comparing notes because my son is about a year and a half older than her young son. I’m showing her photos and videos and what to expect. We’re just really enjoying each other’s company.”
So wait, what?! Was Alexis pregnant during the filming of the Gilmore Girls revival? How old is her son exactly? WE HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS. While Alexis hasn’t released any sort of statement about the new information, in the interview, Patterson mentions that his son is about a year and a half older than Bledel’s. He became a dad in July 2014, so according to our very scientific calculations (JK), Bledel’s baby is probably around six months old. Sneaky, Alexis. Very sneaky! But hey, congrats to the fam regardless!
