Actress Julia Stiles, who started acting when she was only 11, officially announced her pregnancy on August 1, 2017.
Fans everywhere have been speculating for weeks about the 36-year-old star being pregnan, but she didn’t address the rumors until the first day of August.
With celebrities like Beyoncé making huge announcements about their pregnancies and births, it’s easy to assume all celebrities would want to make a huge deal when they’re expecting a little one, but some — like Julia Stiles — prefer to fly under the radar.
Julia, who was a huge star in the late 1990s and early 2000s, still has a big fan base, but she’s become more private with her personal life as she’s gotten older.
In January 2016, she quietly announced her engagement on Instagram, so it was only fitting that her next big announcement — her pregnancy — would be announced the same way.
