Many stars keep their bellies under wraps (sometimes literally) for the sake of their privacy — while others hide their pregnancy for the sake of their career.
Pregnant Anna Paquin falls into the latter.
The True Blood star has been forced to conceal her growing belly as her character on the HBO vampire drama, Sookie Stackhouse, is not with child.
“I know that her stunt double has had more work than needed before,”costar Todd Lowetold Celebuzz. “I know that and they’re pretty creative with staging and costuming.”
Some celebs play coy with the press, like Jessica Simpson. The new mom was reported to be pregnant by nearly every media outlet before she confirmed the news — but only by posting a pic on her website in October in a mummy costume holding her belly, saying she was going to “be a mummy.”
As for Adele, she was daft at hiding any signs of showing by limiting public appearances, dodging press lines and wearing loose clothing. Clever girl.
