Officially the world’s greatest secret keeper

Gilmore Girls fans rejoice, as Rory, sorry - Alexis Bledel, has given birth to a baby boy.

And this isn’t just any baby boy, it’s a secret baby boy who Alexis and her husband, Vincent Kartheiser welcomed back in the autumn last year.

That is SO Rory.

We’re sure the baby news would have remained secret a little longer, but her Gilmore Girls co-star revealed all during a recent magazine interview with Glamour.

Scott Paterson, who plays the super brooding Luke, told the mag what a brilliant mother Alexis is.

Speaking about being reunited with her for the Gilmore Girls revival, he said: '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.

'She's just the most likeable, intelligent person and adorable human being. She hasn't changed at all. She looks the same.’

And just because the actress has remained tight lipped about her pregnancy and birth, doesn’t mean she hasn’t been sharing stories about him with the cast.

‘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.'

While her rep has confirmed that Alexis and Vincent have had their first child, nothing else has been revealed, and if she’s this good at keeping shtum about her private life, we imagine it’ll be a long ol’ wait before we get a name. For now though, we’ll call him Rory Jr.
