Many celebrities like to keep their children hidden away from the camera. Of course, social media allows them to share what they want with the world. Troian Bellisario and her husband, Patrick J. Adams, are both well-known actors, and have managed to keep their daughter’s name secret for a whole year. Now, they have finally revealed it — and it’s as beautiful as you would expect. Read on to learn what it is.

Bellisario is best known for ‘Pretty Little Liars’

Bellisario is a Los Angeles native who grew up in the business. Her dad, Donald P. Bellisario, is known for creating series like Magnum, P.I. and NCIS. Her mother, Deborah Pratt, is an actress and producer.

Bellisario is best known for portraying Spencer Hastings (and, spoiler alert, her identical twin, Alex Drake) in Pretty Little Liars. She has also been in films such as the mystery-comedy Where’d You Go, Bernadette.

Adams rose to prominence in ‘Suits’

Adams hails from Canada and came to the U.S. to attend USC and study acting. He appeared in episodes of series like Friday Night Lights and in films such as Rage before he landed the part of Mike Ross in Suits.

Adams portrayed Mike until the end of Season 7 when his character marries Meghan Markle’s Rachel. He recently returned for the series finale. Adams has also recurred in series like Orphan Black, Legends of Tomorrow, and Sneaky Pete.

The couple was married in 2016

Bellisario and Adams first began dating a decade ago. When he appeared in an episode of Pretty Little Liars in 2010, they had broken up, but decided to give it another go. And that one stuck.

In Dec. 2016, Adams and Bellisario tied the knot in an epic days-long event they called Fort Day, in honor of the forts they would build together on their anniversary. Several of Bellisario’s Pretty Little Liars co-stars were in attendance.

What is their daughter’s name?

Bellisario and Adams are a generally private couple. In fact, Bellisario kept her pregnancy a secret all the way up until she announced the birth of their daughter in Oct. 2018. Now, they’re celebrating her first birthday.

In an Instagram post, Bellisario shared a photo of her daughter crawling away from the camera in the sand. She wrote about the “WONDERFUL, life-changing days” since her birth, and dedicated the post to fighting climate change. Bellisario also revealed her daughter’s first name: Aurora.

Both Bellisario and Adams have a lot going on in their lives in addition to taking care of their little girl. The former has two films in post-production according to IMDb, one of which is a short. We also can assume that she’ll continue to act and, most likely, direct, which she has shown a knack for.

Adams, meanwhile, is set to star in the upcoming drama series The Right Stuff. He will portray a young John Glenn in the show executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio for National Geographic.
