The story has been told of Chelsea Smith, a 26-year-old mum who hid her pregnancy bump for the entire nine months.
She was able to hide the pregnancy because her bump was very small and looked like she “just had a curry”.
Chelsea Smith saw her mum, sister and father-in-law every day throughout her pregnancy but says nobody clocked she was carrying her third child.
Her lack of cravings and morning sickness helped keep her family in the dark.
The couple welcomed baby Bertie on January 31, weighing 5lb 7oz.
Chelsea, said: “I didn’t have any symptoms of pregnancy. No morning sickness, no cravings - not even a bump.
“Nobody had a clue. It just looked like I had a curry.
“It wasn’t like we were planning on playing a big joke on all our friends and family. I just liked the idea of keeping it to ourselves.”
Chelsea and husband Jack, 29, decided to keep the pregnancy a secret following a scare when their daughter Susie arrived prematurely.
So after giving birth to Bertie, wedding photographer Chelsea, from Nantwich, Cheshire, was able to surprise her folks.
They visited Chelsea’s sister Holly and mum Gaynor and sent texts to her sisters with a picture of Bertie.
Chelsea, also mum to Susie, one, and Florence, two, laughed: “Only me and Jack knew. I don’t think many people could manage that nowadays!”
