No doubt it comes as a surprise as Alexis and the 37-year-old actor kept the pregnancy and birth under wraps.

The couple definitely have experience in keeping things low-key as they were married in a top-secret ceremony in California in June 2014.

Alexis and Vincent began dating after playing secret lovers on his hit AMC series Mad Men in episodes that aired in 2012.

The news comes just after the reboot of the Gilmore Girls for Netflix finished shooting, just eight years after it's seventh and final season.

It was her co-star on the drama, Scott Patterson, who happened to reveal the big news in an interview with Glamour

The 57-year-old actor said: 'It was great to see her. She's really blossomed as a woman and now she's a proud new mother and married and happy.' 

Scott continued gushing as he reminisced that he remembers her being overwhelmed as an 18-year-old young actress.

He said:  'She's just the most likeable, intelligent person and adorable human being. She hasn't changed at all. She looks the same.

'We're comparing notes because my son is about a year and a half older than her young son. I'm showing her photos and videos and what to expect. We're just really enjoying each other's company.'

The Netflix reboot will pick up ten years later and includes almost all of the original main characters, including those played by Lauren Graham and Melissa McCarthy, among others.

While no air date has been announced yet, the streaming service has decided to release the reboot in four 90 minute parts.
