When Miranda Zilkowsky found out she was pregnant, there was no elaborate social media announcement, and no extravagant baby shower or gender reveal

In fact, the only other person who knew was her partner.

“POV: You kept your pregnancy a secret for nine months,” she wrote on a viral video explaining her decision, which has so far amassed 3 million views. 

Miranda described it as “probably one of the best decisions I ever made.” 

‘She hid it this whole time?!’

She shared her story with a collection of photos and videos from her pregnancy—from celebrating with the positive pregnancy test to her bump growing in the mirror, to ultrasound appointments and maternity shoots. 

She eventually did tell some family members—her dad found out when she was 30 weeks along, and she also told her mom. 

“She hid it this whole time?” her dad said in a follow-up video.

“We didn’t have a baby shower or gender reveal, and that’s okay…” she said. 

“Because look at us now.”

The couple’s ‘gender reveal’ was them finding out together in the car.

Mirando said hiding her pregnancy was the best thing that ever happened to her.

Baggy hoodies and working from home helped hide Miranda’s pregnancy

How did she hide it so successfully?

In a follow-up video, Miranda showed what she looked like two months before giving birth while wearing a hoodie. She works from home and works for herself, so it wasn’t all that difficult to hide.

She also shared a sweet video showing her cuddling and singing to her daughter before she told anyone of her existence. You can watch it here.

The comment section on Miranda’s original video was flooded with people saying how they could never keep this kind of secret. 

“My [mom’s] feelings would be so hurt if I didn’t tell her,” one person wrote. 

Commenters on Miranda's video said that they wouldn't have been able to hide the pregnancy from their family.

“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,” another viewer said. 

A lot of people shared how they hid their pregnancy too, while others admitted they wished they thought of this. 

“We hid ours for five months and it was absolutely amazing! I wish we kept it between us longer,” one viewer wrote. 

“Looking back I wished I would’ve done this with my babies,” another said.

One person described Miranda as being in her “Kylie Jenner era” after the famous mom-of-two and entrepreneur kept her pregnancies very low profile—we actually still don’t know the name of her son.
