Cupid's Pulse Article: Megan Fox Says Reese Witherspoon Helped Her Deliver in SecretCupid's Pulse Article: Megan Fox Says Reese Witherspoon Helped Her Deliver in Secret

By Jennifer Ross

After giving birth on Sept. 27, Megan Fox and husband Brian Austin Green have yet to release a photo of baby Noah. However, Fox is willing to give us a visual image. In an interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Fox says, “He looks, I would say, 70 percent like Brian… recently he’s been getting chubbier and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, he’s so chubby — now he looks like you.” Jokingly, she can’t decide if that is a compliment. According to UsMagazine.comFox then claims that she has Reese Witherspoon to thank for indirectly helping her to deliver in secrecy.  “She went into labor the day before I did, and all of the paparazzi followed her to Santa Monica. So when I went into labor, I went to Cedars [Sinai Medical Center in L.A.], and nobody cared or knew I was there. So I got in and out. I left the next day and nobody knew. It was a big secret for three weeks.” The word got out when Fox posted a comment about baby Noah on Facebook. “We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul.”

What are some reasons to keep your labor under wraps?

Cupid’s Advice:

Going into labor is one of the most wonderful experiences in life that you may want to share with your family. On the other hand, you and your partner may want to keep the delivery a secret. Can’t decide whether to notify or not? Here are a few valid reasons when to keep your labor a secret:

1. Negativity: You may decide not to tell anyone when you are in labor if you might receive negative reactions from friends or family. Unfortunately, sometimes there are people that just don’t want to see you happy.

2. Personal moment: Another acceptable reason to not share the labor news is when you and your mate want to experience the delivery with the least amount of distractions or stress. This is especially the case when the mother-to-be had a difficult pregnancy.

3. Adoption: Should you decide that you are giving your baby up for adoption, it is understandable that you won’t tell anyone when the delivery starts. Going through this alone can be traumatic. Therefore, be sure to at least talk with someone afterwards.
