Announcement of Anne Hathaway's Pregnancy Is Made in Insensitive Way

anne hathawayHey, we hear another celeb might be pregnant! It may be that Anne Hathaway is expecting a baby with husband Adam Schulman. And we know this because Anne's comedian brother, Tom Hathaway, let the news slip during a performance. According to an audience member at Tom's October 30 show in Brooklyn, Tom opened his show saying something along the lines of "My sister got married last year, and now she is about to be a new mom!" Whoops -- spoiler alert, everyone! My sister is knocked up. She probably wanted to announce this herself the usual celeb way, via publicist, once she was safely past the first trimester. But surprise! I'm spilling the beans instead.

OMG, thanks a lot, Tom! It's going to be an awkward Thanksgiving dinner with Anne and Adam this year. Dude, what were you thinking?


Keep in mind, this gossip comes to us via the Sun, which has been known to be wrong about a thing or two. But since Anne's been under the radar lately I wouldn't be surprised if it were true. As for Anne's brother -- oof, did he really do that? Well, it wouldn't be the first time.

There's always that one family member or close friend who just can't keep a secret. Maybe they're just too excited to keep the news to themselves. Maybe they don't understand how important it is that you announce your pregnancy your way. Maybe they weren't listening when you said DON'T TELL ANYONE YET. Most of the time you already know what this knucklehead is likely to do and so you keep your pregnancy a secret from them as well. But that's not always possible.

And anyway, sometimes you share your pregnancy news with someone you shouldn't for the same reason they share your pregnancy news when they shouldn't -- because it's hard to keep a secret.

We'll find out if this rumor about Anne Hathaway's maybe-pregnancy is true soon enough! Hopefully about six months from now we'll be sharing the exciting news that Anne and Adam just welcomed a new baby into their family. Or... you know, maybe not.

Has anyone ever spilled the news that you're pregnant before you were ready to announce it?
