A mum was able to hide her pregnancy for the entire nine months as her bump was so small, it looked like she had just eaten a light dish.
Chelsea Smith, 26, saw her mum, sister and father-in-law every day throughout her pregnancy but says nobody knew she was carrying her third child.
Chelsea and husband Jack, 29, decided to keep the pregnancy a secret following a scare when their daughter Susie arrived prematurely.
She and her husband welcomed their baby, Bertie, on January 31, weighing 5lb 7oz.
Chelsea, said: “I didn’t have any symptoms of pregnancy. No morning sickness, no cravings – not even a bump.
“Nobody had a clue. It just looked like I had a curry.
“It wasn’t like we were planning on playing a big joke on all our friends and family. I just liked the idea of keeping it to ourselves.”
After giving birth to Bertie, they sent texts to family with a photo of the baby to surprise them.
