Surprise! It looks like Alexis and her handsome hubby pulled a fast one on all of us!

Rumours first emerged of the brunette beauty’s pregnancy in November of last year, but when she and her husband Vincent stepped out onto the red carpet in January of this year, the baby buzz was quickly quashed as gossip.

Now, as it happens, Alexis’ Gilmore Girls co-star Scott Patterson has dropped the big baby bombshell, saying that she was indeed pregnant, and actually gave birth in secret last year!

Speaking to Glamour.com about the upcoming Netflix revival of the show, the 57-year-old said of the new mum, “It was great to see her. She’s 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 likeable, intelligent person and adorable human being.”

“She hasn’t changed at all. She looks the same,” he added before revealing that she welcomed a baby boy.

The star quickly muted the rumours after stepping out in January with no sign of a baby bump. Little did we know, she already had a bub at home!

“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.”

The proud new parents met in 2012 when they played lovers on the hit show Mad Men. They announced their engagement in 2013 and the following year they were married in a private ceremony in California.

Congratulations to the new parents! We can’t wait to find out more about your little one.
