The ’16 & Pregnant’ season 4 star revealed that she welcomed her second daughter in Oct. 2013 — and completely hid her pregnancy from the cameras when filming a reunion episode for the show while 6 months pregnant!

Sarah Roberts revealed that she kept her second pregnancy a secret while she was filming MTV’s Aug. 2013 special, 16 & Pregnant Season 4: Where Are They Now? Sarah and her boyfriend Justin welcomed a daughter named Tessly together on Oct. 1, 2013 — and she managed to keep her pregnancy and second child’s birth completely under wraps!

Sarah gave birth to her second child on Oct. 1, via VBAC (Vaginal Birth After C-Section), reported Wet Paint. She described her newborn daughter, Tessly, as “pure perfection,” but her second pregnancy was a shock. Sarah initially considered adoption until deciding that she “couldn’t follow through with it,” according to the site.

Her pregnancy may have come as a shock, but her ability to keep her 6-month baby bump completely concealed while filming an 16 & Pregnant follow-up special is also pretty unbelievable!

“I didn’t want negative comments about an innocent child,” Sarah told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup about her decision not to reveal her pregnancy. “She didn’t deserve that.” Sarah apparently has been experiencing criticism from fans of the show because of a large age difference between her and Tessly’s dad, Justin — harshness she can handle herself, but doesn’t want exposed to her child.

Sarah has a 2-year-old daughter, Tinleigh, who she welcomed with her ex, Blake Thomas on her season of the show. (Blake famously rejected Sarah to go work on a shrimp boat, and also called her a “dumba**.”

Sarah is happier than ever with her boyfriend Justin and their new family, she told The Ashley’s, and Justin is even a great father figure to Tinleigh.

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you like the name Tessly?
