Some celebrities have mastered the art of maintaining their privacy. Other stars complain that everything is out in public when you're famous. Many have proven that it is quite possible to keep certain aspects of their lives to themselves. It has been even possible for big stars like Romeo Santos to keep news as big as having a baby a complete secret from the public.

He has previously said that he chooses to keep his personal life away from fans and the media because he says then they would feel entitled to know every detail about him.
