Laura Prepon and her husband Ben Foster welcomed their newborn son in February, and now we’re learning why they have yet to announce his name.
“We make all those decisions as a family because we’re in the public eye,” the 40-year-old “You and I, as Mothers: A Raw and Honest Guide to Motherhood” author and actress told Us Weekly. “So whenever we do something like that, we have a conversation about it first and make sure that we’re comfortable with it.”
Shortly after his birth, the Coronavirus pandemic “took over everyone’s lives,” so they have not had the conversation about when they might announce his name. “Until we have a conversation, we know not to talk about it,” she added. “It’s cute that people want to know his name.”
She added, “It’s a constant negotiation because we’re so fortunate to do what we love. But part of being in the public eye is how do you negotiate keeping your privacy, how do you negotiate keeping your personal life private?”
Just a few weeks ago, Laura revealed that she and Ben actually had to terminate their second pregnancy together.
