Like their low-profile romance, this couple also managed to keep the arrival of their baby boy which was born earlier this year, under wraps.
"Watchmen" star Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been hiding a big secret from film fans - he's a new dad. The 44 year old and his girlfriend, former "One Tree Hill" star Hilarie Burton, welcomed a baby boy to the world earlier this year, according to tabloid reports.
The private couple managed to keep the romance under wraps after becoming an item last year, but Us Weekly magazine has uncovered the facts. A source tells the publication, "Their relationship moved really quickly."
Burton divorced "One Tree Hill" assistant director Ian Prange in 2008 and Morgan discovered he was a first-time father after his actress ex Sherrie Ross revealed her son was the result of her romance with the star.
Before dating Hilarie Burton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan was engaged to Mary-Louise Parker but called it quits a few months later.
