CONFIDENTIAL: DISCOVERY FIT & HEALTH CONSPIRES WITH THE "SECRETLY PREGNANT"

-- New Six-Part Series SECRETLY PREGNANT Premieres Thursday, October 13 at 10PM ET --

(Silver Spring, Md.) - What happens when a woman becomes pregnant, and then must use every means conceivable to hide the pregnancy? What happens when she must finally reveal her secret, no longer able to hide the truth? Discovery Fit & Health explores this reality in the world premiere of the new original series, SECRETLY PREGNANT, airing Thursdays at 10PM ET beginning October 13.

Each one-hour episode of SECRETLY PREGNANT tells the stories of two different women who have their own reasons for hiding a pregnancy. From avoiding rejection to severe health implications, these women remain secretly pregnant to protect themselves and their loved ones. Whether keeping the secret from family, friends, a boss or co-workers, SECRETLY PREGNANT follows each woman's very emotional journey to the reveal of their secret, and the aftermath of welcoming a new life into the world. The women highlighted in each episode include:

Krystal / Danie Series World Premiere: Thursday, October 13 at 10PM ET In the world premiere of Discovery Fit & Health's new series SECRETLY PREGNANT, Krystal (28) and Danie (23) are afraid to tell certain family members about their pregnancies because they fear their contempt. Although neither woman got pregnant under ideal circumstances, both want to keep their babies. Krystal and her fiancé Brandon are hiding their pregnancy from Brandon's mother, because they fear she will be furious with them for having a third baby while living in a motel and scraping by on Brandon's military disability benefits. Danie got pregnant out of wedlock and is keeping her pregnancy from her father because she worries he will be angry. Unfortunately, her father wasn't a big part of her life growing up, so Danie can't bear the thought that her dad also may not want to be a part of his granddaughter's life.

Carmen / Jerline World Premiere: Thursday, October 20 at 10PM ET Carmen (33) and Jerline (23) are hiding their pregnancies from those closest to them. Already raising toddlers, neither woman was prepared for the surprise of another baby. Carmen is unexpectedly pregnant with her second baby from a love affair with an unavailable man. A struggling single mother, Carmen strives to maintain her personal and professional relationships while supporting her growing family on her own. Jerline and her husband live with her mother, relying on her for financial support. Trying to get their lives back on track, Jerline is hesitant to tell her mother about the pregnancy. With no jobs or savings, time is running out to make it on their own before the new baby arrives.

Jackie / Tessa World Premiere: Thursday, October 27 at 10PM ET Jackie (40) and Tessa (19) are both hiding their pregnancies because of their ages. Forty-year-old Jackie is expecting a baby with her nineteen-year-old boyfriend, and she is too embarrassed to tell her family and co-workers the scandalous truth. Tessa is pregnant by her boyfriend of only a few months. Only 19, Tessa is terrified that her conservative parents will think she is throwing her future away.

Jen / Chanda World Premiere: Thursday, November 3 at 10PM ET Jen (30) and Chanda (26) are both hiding their pregnancies for fear of rejection. Having suffered through a stillbirth a year ago, Jen felt abandoned when her friends didn't reach out to her. Now expecting another child, she is terrified to tell anybody for fear that history will repeat itself. At 17, Chanda had a son and her parents warned her that they would throw her out if she ever got pregnant again out of wedlock. Now, unmarried and carrying the child of an ex-con, Chanda is certain that the truth will end her relationship with her parents.

Richanne / Paola World Premiere: Thursday, November 10 at 10PM ET Richanne (24) and Paola (33) both have surprising reasons for hiding their pregnancies. Richanne learned she was pregnant just days after she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Although she told her closest family members about the tumor, she is closely guarding the news about the pregnancy because she knows her family will fear for the lives of her and her unborn baby. To Paola, who works as a bikini model, body image is everything. Paola is certain that if her colleagues find out she is pregnant, her career will be over.

Sandra / Dannielle Season Finale: Thursday, November 17 at 10PM ET Sandra (42) and Dannielle (20) are both hiding their unexpected pregnancies from their families. Sandra fears the news of her pregnancy will decimate the already tumultuous relationship she has with her grown daughters, especially because they also disapprove of Sandra's boyfriend. Former foster child Dannielle has no family in her life except her grandfather, so she is terrified to tell him about her unplanned pregnancy for fear he will cut her out of his life forever.

SECRETLY PREGNANT premieres on Thursday, October 13 at 10PM ET. SECRETLY PREGNANT is produced for Discovery Fit & Health by Gigantic! Productions. Cheryl Horner Sirulnick is executive producer. Lynn Sadofsky is executive producer for Discovery Fit & Health.
