Surprise! Laura Linney and her husband, real estate agent Marc Schauer, welcomed a baby boy on Jan. 8, after the 49-year-old actress kept the news of her pregnancy under wraps for nine long months!

The Big C star Laura Linney sure knows how to keep a secret! We were totally shocked to learn on Jan. 17 that the acclaimed actress had secretly given birth to a baby boy, whom she named Bennett Armistead Schauer. Bennett is the first child for both Laura and her husband of four years, Marc Schauer.
