* In ''UsagiYojimbo'', Usagi returns to his home village for a time, where his former love has been married to another man for several years. The woman has a kid, and Usagi grows quite fond of the little tyke, especially since the guy starts calling him "Uncle". Before long, however, the revelations start: It's really Usagi's kid, of course, and his love didn't want to tie him down (since he's a samurai who needs to be able to travel). After a discussion, Usagi decides not to stick around, lest he drive a wedge between the boy and his adoptive father. Then, somewhat later, it's revealed that [[spoiler:the boy knows that he's Usagi's kid]]. But neither [[spoiler:Usagi nor the kid is willing to tell the other]], believing that the other doesn't know.

* In the ''Literature/RedRising'' trilogy, Mustang hides her pregnancy from the majority of the cast and from society at large for multiple reasons. In addition to being a rebel leader fighting on the front lines of a war, Darrow was [[BadassInDistress captured]] and imprisoned before she even knew she was pregnant, and when he was rescued after being presumed dead for nine months, the resistance movement he's part of is slowly slipping into HeWhoFightsMonsters territory, and she's concerned that he wouldn't be able to be a good father for their child. She spends the majority of ''Morning Star'' subjecting him to a SecretTestOfCharacter to make sure that he'll be able to be a good father when the rebellion is over, and only tells him when he passes her test.

* In the late 1990s, a woman made the Seattle news after she went to the hospital with terrible stomach pains and delivered a healthy 6-pound baby girl. As her periods had always been light and irregular, and she continued to spot throughout the pregnancy and had no baby bump at all, she had no idea she was pregnant until she gave birth.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer]] was in the dark during most of the time Marge was pregnant with Maggie, in part because she knew Homer planned to just stay with two kids and keep his dream job at the bowling alley and didn't want to upset him. Her sisters, wanting to see Homer suffer, spread the news around town. However, Homer was far too thick to see the signs, understand the congratulatory euphemisms, or notice the ''outright statements'' of his soon-to-be fatherhood, and in fact only fully understood after someone congratulated him on his new job due to RuleOfFunny.

We actually find out why Ragyo kept her third pregnancy secret and, well, the reasons were [[spoiler: because of her erratic behavior and her refusal to seek help, Souichiro was planning on leaving her and taking their daughters with him, thus if she had a child within that time, she probably would have lost custody]] She wasn't very keen on letting that happen.

* In AnneMcCaffrey's ''Literature/AcornaSeries'', Acorna's pregnancy wasn't a secret (In fact, her mother detects it before she does). The fact that she was pregnant with twins was. One of the embryos was stolen from her by [[SmallNameBigEgo Graymalkin]], one of the race of aliens responsible for creating her species (who, in fact, stole Ariin to [[StableTimeLoop use her genetic code to create the original Linyaari]]).
