Surprise! Laura Linney is a first-time mom, giving birth to a son, Bennett, on Jan. 8 after keeping her pregnancy totally secret from fans and the press, according to Us Weekly.
“Mother and baby are happy and healthy,” her rep confirms. Linney married husband Marc Schauer in 2009.
Linney is 49. To celebrate this feat, let’s watch our favorite Laura Linney scene, from “Love Actually.” Around the two-minute mark, where she does her little victory dance is the best part. We’re doing the same dance for her now. Well, probably not right now, like the moment you read this, but we’re very excited for her.
