When a celebrity child is born, the red carpet seems to roll out for them.

But there are some celebrity parents out there who seem to diligently keep their children out of the limelight, and impressively so. Those are the celebrities you didn't even realize were parents.

In a world where baby pictures seem to inundate your every social media feed, it's crazy to think that there are people whose lives are seemingly on display who manage to keep their kids out of the public eye.
