Harry Styles‘s sister Gemma kept her pregnancy a secret and leaves her fans in shock when she announced that she had given birth in February. 

Sharing the birth news, the new mother, 33, shared a snap of herself and partner Michal Miynowski with their new dotting daughter – much to the surprise of followers who hadn’t known she was expecting. 

Alongside the post announcing the birth on February 23, Gemma wrote: ‘Hello from maternity leave! Took some time off to ensure the safe arrival of our baby girl, who is adored by her whole family.

‘I know that this news can be difficult for many people and I’m sending you lots of love.’

Why She Kept Her Pregnancy a Secret

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday nigh in a Q&A with her followers, Gemma revealed she concealed her baby bump throughout her pregnancy to ‘keep her [daughter] safe and protected’.

The writer and podcaster was asked why she decided not to share that she was pregnant, she replied: ‘To be honest it was a mixture of things, some more personal and some less so.

‘I wanted to wait until after some later scans but thought there was no way I was going to get through the last Love On Tour shows without seeing my bump so that would be it… but turns I managed to keep it under wraps and eventually I was like, I think I can make it to the end? And that felt like the right decision for us.’

Gemma was then commended by a follower for ‘taking care’ of her daughter’s privacy for the time being.

‘Thank you, I appreciate that!’ she said. ‘I don’t know if I’ll always feel the same about it but essentially giving out information online it’s like… you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube, you know?

She continued: ‘I’ve never done this before, I don’t know what she would want and we want to keep her safe and protected. 

‘I know lots of people keep their kids’ faces/names/details off social media and there are some great reasons for that, we’ll figure it out in our own time.’

She added: ‘I really appreciate all the supportive messages checking in on how we are, it’s so nice that people care – we’re good!’

She however admitted she was sure someone would spot it during the last shows of her superstar brother’s Love On Tour, but it surprised her no one did.
