Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Noah, in late September. No one knew that their little bundle of joy had arrived until 26-year-old Fox announced it on Facebook three weeks later.
“We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do. I gave birth to our son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th. He is healthy, happy, and perfect,” Fox shared on October 17. “We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love.”
Most celebrities struggle to keep baby news a secret, due to the ever-present paparazzi intruding on their lives, so Green and Fox were very surprised they were able to keep their baby news a secret for as long as they did.
Brian Austin Green recently chatted with Ryan Seacrest and admitted it was “unbelievable” nobody knew about his son.
“We were lucky enough to go in at 2:30 in the morning to the hospital and nobody knew,” former Beverly Hills 90210 actor Green told Ryan Seacrest, according to People. “We got out of the hospital and nobody knew. We got home and thought, ‘This is unbelievable.’ We weren’t expecting to be able to get away with it. We were expecting all the [paparazzi] guys in the hallways and the parking structure. So we just figured we would go with it as long as we could.”
According to Green, they were able to have privacy because another celebrity baby stole all the attention away. Reese Witherspoon welcomed her third child, a baby boy named Tennessee, on the same day Megan Fox gave birth to her son. All the attention was on Reese.
“I’ve been wanting to send Reese Witherspoon flowers for, like, a month and a half now, ’cause she actually gave birth [the same day as] us in Santa Monica,” he said.
Now that his baby news has been out there, Brian Austin Green openly talked about fatherhood. Noah is his second child, he has a son named Kassius, 10, from a previous relationship. According to the actor, Noah is a good baby, but being a father again makes him feel old.
“I really felt young for my age until my new son was born. I’ve never felt so 40 in my life,” he joked.
