Samira Wiley, Hollywood Celebration

Samira Wiley gushed about newborn daughter George, who the Handmaid’s Tale cast knew about all along. Read on for the advice the stars gave to the new mom.

Until about a week ago, nobody knew Samira Wiley had become a mom.

The Handmaid’s Tale actress marveled at how she and wife Lauren Maurelli kept their pregnancy a secret, telling E! News in an exclusive interview, “It’s really interesting, the things you can hide in a pandemic. We just didn’t post pictures about it and it ended up being fine.”

It was, of course, difficult to keep such exciting news from her co-stars, revealing that “everybody knew” they were expecting their first child together. She remarked, “I don’t think there was anybody on set who didn’t know that I was about to be a mom. It was like all I talked about, all the time.”
