Megan Fox and Brian Austin Fox have recently become proud parents of a healthy baby boy Noah Shannon, but the news of the baby’s birth didn’t hit the media until 3 weeks after the baby was born, which is basically a miracle considering celebs rarely manage to keep anything from the paparazzi. However, despite the media frenzy Megan Fox’s pregnancy sparked, the media was kept in the dark throughout Megan’s pregnancy by the hot Hollywood couple who’s never been shy to underline the importance of privacy in their lives.

Now, after they personally announced the birth of their son via Facebook, in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday, Brian Austin Green revealed how the two managed to keep baby Noah’s birth a secret for so long. According to People, Brian Austin Green credits the birth of Reese Witherspoon’s son for their moment of privacy. Apparently, the attention was focused on the news that Reese was rushed to the hospital, offering Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green plenty of privacy to arrive to the hospital and keep the news all to themselves. The former Beverly Hills 90210 actor said that:

“I’ve been wanting to send Reese Witherspoon flowers for, like, a month and a half now, ’cause she actually gave birth [the same day as] us in Santa Monica. We were lucky enough to go in at 2:30 in the morning to the hospital and nobody knew.”

Apparently, the fact that they managed to welcome their son without the news hitting the newsstands was a surprise even for the couple as Brian Austin confessed that:

“We got out of the hospital and nobody knew. We got home and thought, ‘This is unbelievable.’ We weren’t expecting to be able to get away with it. We were expecting all the [paparazzi] guys in the hallways and the parking structure. So we just figured we would go with it as long as we could.”

And they managed to go with it for three long weeks, until E!News found out, so the couple decided to make the announcement themselves via Facebook. Brian Austin Green is not a novice when it comes to fatherhood as the actor has a 10 year old son from a previous relationship, but it seems that his experience doesn’t make having a newborn easier as the actor confessed that:

“I really felt young for my age until my new son was born. I’ve never felt so 40 in my life (joking). He’s really good ; he sleeps but it’s only in three hour increments. You get about three hours and then he’ll fuss about something. First you spend 10 minutes figuring out where you are, then you realize, ‘I’m home and it’s my child.’ Then you figure out what’s wrong — a diaper or hungry.”

Megan Fox has yet to share her take on motherhood, but the ‘Transformers’ hottie has expressed the fact that she’s always been maternal in an interview previous to the breaking-news of her pregnancy, leaving us to assume she’s doing her best. All that remains now is for the first baby snaps to emerge as we bet baby Noah Shannon is a cutie!
