Alexis Bledel is a mom!
ET can confirm that the Gilmore Girls star welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with husband Vincent Kartheiser last fall.
The news comes as a complete surprise, as the couple kept both the pregnancy and birth under wraps. It was actually Bledel’s Gilmore Girls co-star, Scott Patterson, who spilled the beans!
“It was great to see [Alexis]. She’s really blossomed as a woman and now she’s a proud new mother and married and happy,”; Patterson dished to Glamour magazine during an interview promoting the show’s highly anticipated Netflix reboot. “I remember her as an 18-year-old kid, fresh out of college coming into Hollywood and being a little overwhelmed. She’s just the most likeable, intelligent person and adorable human being. She hasn’t changed at all. She looks the same.”;
“We’re comparing notes because my son is about a year and a half older than her young son,”; Patterson — who welcomed his son, Nick, in July 2014 — continued. “I’m showing her photos and videos and what to expect. We’re just really enjoying each other’s company.”;
Bledel, 34, and Kartheiser, 37, are no strangers to surprises, however. The two tied the knot in 2014 in a top-secret ceremony in California.
Congrats to the new-ish parents!
