10 TV Stars Who Hid Their Pregnancies Onscreen

#1 Keri Russell, The Americans
Russell and her co-star, Matthew Rhys, were not only onscreen lovers, they had real-life romance as well. During Season 4 of The Americans, the show hid Russell’s baby bump with groceries, baskets, and large coats. The show also resorted to computer-generated graphics to take out the bump altogether.

#2 Lisa Kudrow, Friends
Kudrow had it easier than most pregnant actresses. In real life, she was pregnant with her son during the fourth season of Friends, but it was actually written into the part. The show didn’t necessarily hide her pregnancy, they just made her pregnant with triplets and emphasized her real baby bump even more. Her character, Phoebe Buffay, was a surrogate who delivered her brother’s triplets.
