So much depends on individuals and the general relationships and atmosphere in the office. I"m not sure why he would think of hiding the fact that his wife was pregnant or had a baby, from his employers - was there any reason for him to expect they might do something unpleasant about it ? I can't imagine what ~!
Some people are just very private and don't share anything about their private life with work colleagues. I would NOT call his wife behind his back, but simply say calmly to him that you hacve heard indirectly that he and his wife have had a child, and you want to congratulate them both. Maybe suggest that some days of paternity leave would be in order if he wants to take them.
