Spill the beans

'spilling the beans' means 'disclosing confidential information':

It seems everyone knows about our engagement. I wonder who spilled the beans.

There's a similar expression you can use in this context. See if you can find the missing words:

It seems everyone knows about our engagement. I wonder who ......... the ............. out of the ..............

 

ANSWER: Who let the cat out of the bag?

Hello Minoo,

I think it could be: "It seems everyone knows about our engagement . I wonder who let the cat out of the bag."

Thank you Minoo.

it seems that the English language is an inexhaustible source of idiomatic expression or proverbs ^_^

No doubt about that, Phil. That's why, in my opinion, it's better to learn idiomatic expressions and sayings gradually and in context, rather than out of lists and books.
