Hilarie Burton Keeps Baby Details Secret to Protect ChildWendyM
Former One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton is keeping details about her new baby very secret. Hilarie Burton and actor boyfriend Jeffrey Dean Morgan have done a pretty stellar job at keeping everything on the low-down, it seems.
First, no one really knew they were a couple… and Burton kept her pregnancy so far under the radar that it was a jumbo surprise to find out that she and Jeffrey Dean Morgan had a baby together!
Now, Hilarie Burton remains tight-lipped about baby details. She did have a boy, but will not reveal the baby’s name or birth date, saying they are “really happy, and we’re a very good team. And we got very lucky that our family is what it is.”
Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan began dating in 2009, but she stayed away from being publicly photographed from May 6, 2009 through April 20, 2010. Burton and Morgan finally went public with their romance in April 2010, well after she had a baby.
As for staying hush on the baby details, Hilarie Burton explains, “I want to protect them like a mama wolf should.”
Maybe keeping her family life secret is a healthy thing, unlike oh-so-many celebs who rush their newborns on to the covers of magazines to display to the world. Although, honestly, have you ever heard of such a secret celeb relationship?
