A devoted new mum has shared how she kept her pregnancy a secret for nine months.
Check out the video reveal here:
To be fair the peace and quiet would be lovely, but if you're in the camp that ruins Secret Santa every year, keeping a budding bump secret sounds like a real-life Mission: Impossible.
But, Miranda doesn't regret her choice for a second, saying it's 'probably one of the best decisions I ever made' as she shared her video with fans on TikTok.
Miranda told no one about her pregnancy apart from her husband, and when she reached 30 weeks she told her parents in an effort to keep the pregnancy 'special'.
The heartwarming compilation was captioned: "POV: you kept your pregnancy a secret for 9 months" and was complete with snaps of her and her boyfriend's journey to becoming parents.
While they missed out on some of the typical public milestones, like a baby shower, Miranda said 'that's okay, because look at us now'.
The little family seem happier than ever, but that didn't stop strangers on the internet from weighing in with their opinions.
Some loved that the new mum hid her pregnancy, saying: "I think this is absolutely beautiful. You TWO created a beautiful tiny human and got to do EVERYTHING how you wanted without any stress. I love it."
A second said that they were going to embrace the secret pregnancy idea: "I love this idea! especially after 2 miscarriages, if we get pregnant again I'm keeping it secret."
A third really admired the effort but honestly couldn't imagine doing it themselves: "Girl more power to you. I just can’t. I’m too emotional. I need my mom. And anyone else. I’m so excited I can’t not tell everyone."
Some even shared their own experiences, adding: "We hid ours for 5 months and it was absolutely amazing! I wish we kept it between us longer."
While others questioned: "How do you hide it???? especially when you work and see your parents often."
Another said their parents would be fuming: "My moms feelings would be so hurt if I didn’t tell her."
What do you think of the new mum keeping her pregnancy a secret? Is this something you'd like to give a go?
