It’s unclear when the baby arrived as Alexis kept her pregnancy and the baby’s birth totally under wraps and her Gilmore Girls co-star Scott Patterson is the one who spilled the beans that she’s now a mommy! In an interview with Glamour ahead of the Netflix reboot of the show, he shared “It was great to see her. She’s really blossomed as a woman and now she’s a proud new mother and married and happy.”

“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.”

He continued, “We’re comparing notes because my son is about a year and a half older than her young son. I’m showing her photos and videos and what to expect. We’re just really enjoying each other’s company.” Whoa, we wouldn’t have even known it she had her baby or that it was a boy if it wasn’t for Scott being a blabbermouth! Scott’s son was born in July of 2014 so that would mean Alexis would have had her baby around January 2016 or so. Will Rory be pregnant in the Gilmore Girls revival?

We bet the baby is a total cutie and we hope he got Alexis sparkling blue eyes.The super private couple have been married since the summer of 2014, where the wed in a secret California ceremony. And just like their wedding, they managed to keep Alexis’ pregnancy and their son’s birth totally under wraps. Reports surfaced in Nov. that she was expecting a little one but the couple never confirmed any reports.

The pair met  2012 when Alexis guest starred on Vincent’s AMC hit Mad Men. They played secret lovers on season five, with Alexis playing Beth Dawes, an unsatisfied housewife who Vincent’s Pete Campbell has an illicit affair with. All that heat transferred over into real life when the couple became engaged in Apr. 2013.
