Rachel McAdams is apparently secretly pregnant and about seven months along

Premiere of Disney and Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange

On Wednesday night, Rachel McAdams was notably absent from the big LA premiere of Game Night, the new comedy starring Jason Bateman, McAdams, Kyle Chandler and others. Rachel hasn’t done a big promotional push since Doctor Strange in 2016, really, and even then she didn’t have to make a huge push (because she was barely in the film). We didn’t see much of her throughout 2017, but no one really remarked on it because McAdams has always been one of those actors who can really “disappear” in between projects and promotional tours. She’s been like that for years – we can not see her for months, then she’ll pop up with a new film, then disappear again. Anyway, as it turns out, Rachel was lowkey for a reason: a secret pregnancy!

Life & Style magazine can exclusively reveal that actress Rachel McAdams, 39, is far along in her first pregnancy. She and her boyfriend Jamie Linden were at Staplehouse restaurant in Atlanta on Feb. 13, an eyewitness tells Life & Style, “and she looked to be at least seven months along!”

The Notebook star, who has been keeping a very low profile since the fall, even confirmed her news to a friendly stranger who asked whether she was expecting a boy or a girl. “She said she didn’t know,” says the eyewitness, who adds that Rachel and Jamie, 37, were so down-to-earth that most people didn’t even realize there was a star in their midst.

“They were friendly,” the eyewitness tells Life & Style, who was first to report the actress is expecting. “And Rachel was positively glowing.”

Since Life & Style broke the story, E! News, People Magazine and other outlets have all run their own confirmations, even though it’s clear Rachel or her rep aren’t officially confirming anything. It’s all just sources talking, but I believe those sources because there are paparazzi photos floating around where she looks very bumpy. I hate to compare Rachel to her ex-boyfriend’s current partner, but this is some Eva Mendes sh-t! Remember when we didn’t see Eva for months at a time and then suddenly people were like “oh, she’s pregnant and she’s due next month.” Eva did that sh-t twice!! And now Rachel is doing it. I sort of like it – there’s something so old-school about a secret pregnancy. In any case, congrats to Rachel and her guy. I hope they’re very happy.

    If true, congrats to her!

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      It’s fine that she’s excited about becoming a mother (or maybe been told that she has to act excited about it in order to avoid alienating men). But I just wish her team wouldn’t glorify this ‘choice’ in the tabloids. FFS, women are more than their fertility and their ability to pop out men’s babies. Feminism has worked so hard to fight against women having to have babies, and reproductive rights are under attack.

    • JR says:

      Yes – congrats! As a fellow “older” mom this makes me happy :) !

      • Miss M says:

        Exactly! She is not being private just because she is private. But because she is being cautious due to her age. Yeah, I have been here for a while to know she is not is not 39.
        I really like her and wish her and the baby the best!

  2. Lee says:

    When someone is private and really means it! Kudos to her for keeping her private life private.
    Congrats on the happy news!!

  3. Maya says:

    I love her, beautiful and down to earth.

    Congratulations to her and her partner.

    • hoopjumper says:

      I know! I am such a fan. Hope she gives us a little peek down the line, but she’s so private, I am dubious.

  4. Hh says:

    Congratulations! She’s one of my faves. I think she seems to “disappear” because she lives in Toronto, not LA or NY. I always love when a celebrity says they want privacy and they mean it.

  5. Neelyo says:

    I’ve always loved her and thought she deserved much greater career success than she’s had. She’s charming and funny enough that she could have been a romantic comedy star like Julia Roberts (with more talent) but I don’t think she’s ever wanted that and also nobody makes those movies anymore.

    And if she’s really about to give birth and nobody has known about it, then bravo. I love stories like that.

    • Una says:

      I love her too. If she were born ten years earlier, her career may have been much more prolific than it is right now. She was super prolific for a while but Hollywood stopped making the kind of movies she was popular for. She could not adapt to the new Hollywood scene.
      Additionally I absolutely recommend Game Night. It is funny and she is amazing in it

  6. CommentingBunny says:

    If it’s true I’m happy for her! She seems lovely.

    I saw Game Night last night and it’s fantastic. She is absolutely hilarious. The whole cast is. I laughed my ass off! Highly recommend!

  7. lightpurple says:

    Happy News!

  8. Tiffany27 says:

    Congrats! I feel like she’ll be such a great mom!

  9. Louise177 says:

    To me it’s annoying when people call something secret just because they don’t release a press release. Especially since Rachel isn’t one to seek attention. If she is pregnant I doubt it’s a secret. She just didn’t tell a bunch of strangers.

    • HH says:

      Glad you said something. That struck me to but I didn’t want to seem like I was nitpicking. It’s like when a celebrity is having fun on the beach and tabloids say they’re “flaunting” their bodies. No. They are wearing a bathing suit (as one does at the beach) and you’re intruding on their privacy.

  10. lannisterforever says:

    Are we sure it’s not just Kälteen bars?

  11. Misti says:

    Congrats Mcadams!
    She’s wanted this for a long, long, time.
    Michael Sheen screwed her over.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Michael Sheen did not screw her over. They were two people who wanted different things. Michael has always been pretty vocal about not wanting to get married and not wanting more kids. Perhaps, like a lot of women in that situation, she thought she could change his mind. Either way – no one was the bad guy in that breakup.

    • Candion says:

      She was SO in love with that guy. It showed on her face when she looked at him. Always thought he was too old for her. Glad she’s getting her happily ever after.

  12. smcollins says:

    Congrats (if true)! She’s definitely one of my favorite actresses. She’s great in everything she does, so talented & so beautiful to boot.

  13. minx says:

    Love her, she’s beautiful and talented.

  14. cake says:

    I always liked her, soo pretty and low key. I hope we get to see some chubby baby cheeks eventually. :)

  15. Sasha says:

    Love her. Yay!

  16. Spicecake38 says:

    Each pregnancy is unique so no judgement here honest,but I kept mine quite out of choice.Sometimes people (my cousins to be exact)document EVERY SINGLE DAY from conception to birth as if we need or want to know on social media that they threw up twice after craving Mexican,on the day they were 3 weeks 5 days and 1 hour pregnant.Plus photo of them post barf.Sometimes TMI is just that!Congrats to Rachel!

    • Candion says:

      Me too. I didn’t say anything for almost 6 months but then I started showing and my dad was like is she pregnant? lol

  17. MellyMel says:

    I love her! She’s one of my favorite actresses. Congrats to her and her man!

  18. Gaby says:

    Love her! Congratulations to Rachel!

  19. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I love it when actresses keep their pregnancies private. They don’t owe the public a window into their wombs. Congrats to her and her boyfriends. Rachel has always struck me as someone whonworks hard to maintain her privacy and her life while still doing good work and I respect that. She seems like good people. I’ve never heard a story about her being rude or diva-like to anyone.

  20. Jess says:

    Her skin is gorgeous, I did not think she was 39, damn! Congrats to them, shows it’s entirely possible to disappear in Hollywood when you want to.

    • Miss M says:

      I agree, Jess! She has always looked younger.
      I think it is a combination good genes and a healthy life style.

  21. Bridget says:

    Eva Mendes has said that she literally wasn’t leaving the house so people didn’t know (which I found weird but whatever). But it sounds like Rachel has just been living her life. Is it a secret if she just didn’t make an official announcement?

  22. Abby says:

    I just love her so much, in all her movies. One of my faves. Congrats if true!

  23. Cait says:

    …holy shit, I went to college with Jamie.

    Wow, she muses, from her tiny nonprofit office in New Orleans. ;-)

  24. Other Renee says:

    No wonder celebrities can’t stand their fans sometimes. The woman meets a fan in a restaurant who in turn blabs to the nearest tabloid. Geesh.

  25. Saks says:

    I have a huge crush on her ever since The Hot Chick. Congrats to her!!

  26. Sequinedheart says:

    I love her – I love that she is talented but doesn’t need to be a papp’d fame whore to build that up/prove anything.
    This child is gonna be CAUUUUTE!

  27. Nope says:

    I like her. She’s talented and keeps out of the Hollywood madness. Congrats to her.

  28. anna says:

    She looks 39. Please stop with the ‘she looks 25″. SHe looks damn good though

  29. TaniaOG says:

    Love her and wish her the best in this crazy journey called motherhood!

  30. Lucy2 says:

    Congrats to her! I’ve always liked her, she’s very low-key and does her job well.
