Actress Laura Linny (49) revealed this weekend that she gave birth to a baby boy on Wednesday, January 8 and had kept her pregnancy a secret for nine months.
The Big C star and her real estate agent husband of four years, Marc Schauer, have named their baby Bennett Armistead Schauer.
“Mother and baby are happy and healthy,” says the actress’ rep. Laura kept her big news under wraps by avoiding Hollywood red carpet events, her last public appearance was at Women in Film’s 2013 Crystal + Lucy Awards in Los Angeles in June 2013.
In a phone interview in October, the actress said she was “taking a little time off” and coyly said she was keeping her schedule clear over the next few months.
“I’m not making plans. I'm trying to clear the slate and give myself a little time to breathe and then we'll see. And then it's the life of an actor – you never know. So far, so good,” she said.
