Celebs with family lives stay away from spotlight
We all know that a secret can’t be kept in Hollywood? Clearly, the lives of celebs are always on the top of every magazine and tabloid, especially when they want to show off someone or have their new family member. And when we talk about families, we feel like celebs want to show us all from waking moment to bump to birth.
However, some celebs decide to keep their private life far away from the community and media.
They stay out of the spotlight. Importantly, they want to keep their family member away from paparazzi as well as possible. Sometimes, that is so important to them. Eventually, you don’t know that they got married, were pregnant, or had a new family member until months after the fact. Meanwhile, some tend to share to the public about their purposes to keep their family lives off-the-grid, others choose not to speak about it at all. They keep it to themselves as a big secret. These celebrity couples may be the best parents ever. They make an iron lock on their personal lives to give their children a normal life as every kid. No more limelight.
Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley
When someone mentions Tom Hardy, you may think about buff and hunky Mad Max. You should know that he is also a great dad. Actress Charlotte Riley, his wife, gave birth to their baby in October 2015. Up to now, the name or sex of the child has not been public. That child is the first child of Hardy and Riley. Beforehand, he has another child, a boy named Louis from an old relationship. They are rumored to welcome the second child in June 2018.
Hardy always tries to stay low key. He admits that he wants a normal, happy life with his family than a glamorous celebrity lifestyle. Hardy shared that he doesn’t want to be a star or have any desire for it. “I would like to be a normal man“, he said. He also explained that he just wants to go to the shop, get his child milk and come back home. He wants to be a part of a human race, no outstanding. That’s it. “I just want to be normal together with my beloved“.
Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll
Many people were surprised when they know that actress Kate Winslet was pregnant at 37. That is their third child. However, Winslet and Rocknroll always keep silent about their private life, especially their family life. Winslet shared with This Morning: “We don’t use social media and we feel okay with that. It makes your life more simple”. To her, social media is “a tricky world“.
About her third child — a son named Bear. She named him after a childhood friend. It was kept very private. She shared her opinions about family life to Glamour UK (via People). She also explained why she prefers to have a normal life. “The fact is I love my normal life so much… I’m truly happy with that. We have friends coming to our home for dinner, I cook. I’m sure that I could have lots of people who do the cooking, the driving, all that jazz but I don’t want to happen like that. That is not the childhood I want to give my children.”
Kate Winslet wants to make sure that her children have a normal childhood as she had. It is where you can climb trees and chase butteries.” To be honest, Winslet is not only an amazing celebrity but a superstar mom.
Donald Glover is the genius actor and musician also known as Childish Gambino. He has always stayed far away from social media. And it is very surprising to know how he enjoys it. No one knows that he had a lover. That fact is public when it was revealed that they had a child together. Even though, he didn’t reveal his girlfriend’s name (we now know it’s Michelle).
When he accepted his award at the 2017 Golden Globes, Glover announced the sex of the baby. He stated “I really want to say thank you to my son and his mother. They make me believe in people again, and things being possible when I have them. Thank you. I love you so much”. The first time Glover revealed his first son’s name is in June 2017. It wasn’t until June 2017 that Glover revealed his first son’s name (Legend). He also shared that he and Michelle were expecting the second son later that same year at the Emmys. Glover seems like to make sneaky reveals when he’s receiving awards.
Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego
To be photographed is a normal thing when you’re an actress in Hollywood. Especially if you’re trying to hide that you are pregnant! But actress Zoe Saldana did a thing that surprised everyone. She posted on Instagram to share that she has had a third son, Zen. The Guardians of the Galaxy actress ensured that none of their faces are seen. She is a protective mama bear to her three beautiful children.
It’s clear that she will not post any photos of her children’s face on Instagram. She’ll post photos of her boys with their heads turned or an artsy shot of them from the neck down instead. She just shows the world a little of her life. Honestly, it seems to be working out perfectly!
Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer
We all know Paquin and Moyer as Sookie and Bill on the HBO series True Blood. However, in real life, they are husband and wife. They decided to finally share that they are in love in February 2009 after a long time keeping it like a top secret. They wanted to make sure that the cast and crew didn’t think their relationship was a spectacle of any sort.
There is another thing that they did not share. The fact that she was pregnant. And that were twins! Though Moyer did admit with Us Weekly that they were waiting. She stated that “double is trouble, but that’s cool!. I don’t mind”. The couple kept a private life during their everyday lives in regards to Paquin’s pregnancy.
It seems like Paquin really wants to protect for her children’s — and her own — privacy in the media. For example, after the twins were born in September 2011, Paquin was very angered when the paparazzi tried to capture their faces. She tweeted about the incident after a tabloid magazine published photos of her children online.
Heather Morris and Taylor Hubbell
Heather Morris is no longer a teenager although she played a high school student on Fox’s Glee not too long ago. Her son, Elijah, was born in September 2013 and his dad is her now-husband Taylor Hubbell. The media did not know anything about her pregnancy. She told Us Weekly: “Stress makes everything harder. You have to suffer a lot”. She shared that in speaking about trying to keep calm throughout the months of her pregnancy.
You cannot find any information about her marriage in a tabloid magazine. Sharing about her next nuptials to Us Weekly: “It is just more amazing things between us. We always want to get married. We are looking forward to having a large and fun great reception with our family and friend. There is no paparazzi for our special day.”
Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac
Scarlett Johansson is a familiar name. We know her as Black Widow in The Avengers and as Charlotte in Lost in Translation. However, she rarely appears in the tabloid magazine. That is exactly what she wants. She explained why she tried to keep her life private with Barbara Walters: “As you know, I just want to stay low key, to have a normal life“. She also said: “I always keep silent when the media asks about my private life.“
The fact that she was expecting a child with her then-husband, Romain Daurin was not public. Scarlett did not reveal anything about that. She did finish the interview with Vanity Fair telling how much she hates social media. And Scarlett said that it drives her insane. She also shared that the digital world just makes everything more complicated. Therefore, when her daughter was born in September 2014, she kept everything really quiet and normal.
Johansson also shared in the interview that she does everything on her own. She takes care of her baby alone. “It was very tired and exhausting, you know. But I love to do it. It is just about my love for my baby. Sometimes, it makes me overwhelmed.” The tabloids seldom do capture her with her child. However, she still tried to keep her life more private.
Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell
Evan Rachel Wood has just welcomed a child with her husband, actor Jamie Bell. You may know through HBO’s Westworld as the demure but fierce Dolores. In real life, she is still that but she is also a mother.
The social media wanted to know more detail when they heard that she was pregnant. However, she still kept everything private. She once shared in an interview: “I cannot hide that I was pregnant. People obviously know about that. So I have no problem talking about my baby and how well we are doing. However, I do not want to release his name. I do not want his face to be captured by any paparazzi. Because my children do not have a choice. It is unfair when kids get bothered just because of who their parents are.”
Wood had a childhood star. And because of that, she wants to keep her child away from social media as far as possible. “A lot of criticism or adult situation is thrown at you when you are a child actor “, she said in an interview. So she keeps her child out of the spotlight. His name is a very private thing.
Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman
Besides a talented actress and singer, Anne Hathaway is also a mom. She has a little family with her husband, actor, and producer Adam Shulman. They just welcomed their son in March 2016. Because they want to stay low key, they give him a common and normal name: Jonathan.
After a long time since her son was born, she did not post a photo or release any information about him. However, she once posted a photo of her son watching her interview on a laptop. That is a speech she gave at the United Nation in March 2017. “JRS is watching Mommy’s speech”. But later, she deeply regretted about it.
“I wish that I hadn’t done it. I should have to keep his photos private. I just decided to post a photo of his back after a long time I keep him away from the social media”, she said “I felt like I had just broken something. I will never do it again.“
Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger
Jen Lindley on Dawson’s Creek is a character that makes Michelle Williams becomes famous. But maybe you do not know that she has a bigger role in her personal life: mother. She and Heath Ledger have a daughter named Matilda. They always try to give her baby girl a private and normal life. After three years of being together and two years of being parents, they decided to divorce. Even though, they still try their best to give their child a normal life. Unfortunately, Heath died a few months later. The pressure that Michelle has to carry is harder.
William explained in an interview why she left home in Brooklyn for a long time. She also thanks actress Kristen Bell for helping her daughter’s life stay away from social media. “I think it was a sound decision to left Brooklyn and live in the countryside for six years. It was so peaceful and quiet. You can slowly enjoy life with your baby”, she said. Everything gets better when Kristen helps her to keep Matilda’s life private (via The New York Post)
Williams kept telling about how Kristen help her and how everything changed. Kristen made pictures of these children disappear. It has changed their life.
