How Reese Witherspoon helped hide Megan Fox's baby

Megan Fox's delivery of her first child was so secretive, we just knew the similarly press-avoiding Adele was taking notes.

It turns out all the Brit songstress would have needed to throw off the gossip hounds would've been Reese Witherspoon.

The actress, 36, recently welcomed her third child, a baby boy named Tennessee who just so happened to be born around the same time as Megan Fox's new arrival.

With that stroke of delivery synchronicity, Fox's husband, Brian Austin Green, said on Ryan Seacrest's radio show Tuesday, the pair managed to escape media scrutiny.

"I’ve been wanting to send Reese Witherspoon flowers for like a month and a half now, because she actually gave birth the day before us in Santa Monica, and we were lucky enough to go in at like 2:30 in the morning to the hospital and nobody knew," Green recalled. "We got home and thought, ‘this is unbelievable.’ Because we weren’t expecting to be able to get away with it. We were expecting all the guys to be in the hallways, in the parking structure, and all that stuff. So, we just figured we would go with it as long as we could.”

The news eventually came out a few weeks later, but Fox and her husband were happy to have their privacy for that long.

"We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do," Fox said on her Facebook page. "I gave birth to our son Noah Shannon Green on September 27. He is healthy, happy, and perfect."

    Megan Fox said of being a popular media topic that, though she is not on the same level as Jennifer Aniston, Britney Spears, or Lindsay Lohan, she does find it difficult and that there have been times when people have avoided being around her because they do not want to end up in the media's spotlight. "I need to behave in a way and handle myself in a way that will cause people to take me seriously," `;`^

    Till next time <

    Wow, that was quick. And I only put the thought out to make her pregnant last night. Sorry Megan, had to test out this immaculate conception idea. There's a bunch of others out there who are going through the same thing, just FYI. I wont name names. But ScarJo, Natalie Portman, and Ashley Judd are among the others...

    Megan Fox should have gotten the Elizabeth Taylor part, instead of the red headed, raspy voice Lohan. maybe they can redo it after everyone sees what a joke it is.

      Typical HollySoap. Actress calls agent..."OMG!! I have not been in anything noteworthy in years! Tabloids are calling, what do I say?"
      Agent: "Make a story about the last phone call you made to someone else who is not working."

      my thoughts exactly. nobody cares about megan fox anymore. She's a dime a dozen in hollywood. There are way more attractive and drool-worthy celebrities out there.

      Megan Fox had her chance to become a huge celebrity but she was too stuck up and doesn't care or interact with her fans. So she lost most of them.

    men need to follow this example every so often instead of the what they deal with on a daily basis.
