Pip Claflin, actress Laura Haddock‘s son together with her ex-husband Sam Claflin was born in the year 2015. Claflin’s parents, Laura and Sam, tied the wedding knot back in 2013. However, things didn’t go well between the two and the exes got divorced in the year 2019. Fortunately, they both are in good terms despite their separation.

Baby Pip Claflin’s Sex Was Kept Secret For Six Months
Both of Pip Claflin’s parents are famous actors in the Hollywood industry. No doubt that Laura and Sam are enjoying most of their time in the deserving limelight of the media. But that doesn’t mean that same thing holds for their children. They are notoriously private people and had kept the gender of their first child, Pip, a secret for six whole months.
And finally, in 2016, the actor revealed that his five-month-old baby, Pip is a boy. Sam Claflin told in an interview:
“I’m filming so much at the moment, so I think after Me Before You finishes – which is just before Father’s Day – I will have a bit of family time. I always thought that I’d understand. But it’s like another level of love that you’ve never experienced before.”
It is quite obvious that Pip’s parents are very media conscious for their children and don’t want their children to grow up in the world of paparazzi and media limelight.
