Rashida Jones secretly had a baby last month and we all missed it

We didn't even know she was expecting!

Belated congratulations look to be in order for Rashida Jones.

The actress welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with her boyfriend Ezra Koenig in August, according to E! News.

The couple, who first confirmed their relationship in early 2017, have reportedly named the baby Isaiah Jones Koenig.

Rashida and Ezra are notoriously private and, with a level of secrecy would put Kylie Jenner to shame, never publicly revealed that the actress was even expecting a baby.

She made red carpet appearances up until the Oscars in March and returned to public life earlier this month to launch her new film Quincy, a documentary about her father Quincy Jones.

As E! notes, Rashida’s been wearing flowy dresses for her public appearances this years as to never give away that she was expecting.

She has previously admitted that she had come to terms with the idea that she’d never have children.

Speaking to The Guardian in 2014, she said;

“It’s just this weird thing that’s been hammered into my head culturally: that’s the only way to succeed, that’s the only thing that counts for a woman.

“I’m happy, but the fact that I’m not married and don’t have kids—it’s taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don’t feel like I’m some sort of loser.”
