Keeping a secret in Hollywood isn't easy, but, actress Laura Linney shocked Tinseltown by revealing she gave birth to her first child earlier this month at the age of 49.

Remarkably, her pregnancy never became public.

Linney was last photographed at a Hollywood event in June with no visible baby bump.

In September, she took home an Emmy award for best actress in a miniseries or movie for Showtime's "The Big C: Hereafter," but she was a no show at the ceremony.

This is the award-winning actress' first child with her husband of three years.

Linney's representative says mother and baby are very happy and healthy.
