    Smile sit on a secret = keep a secret?

    I've been sitting on a little secret about your family
    Hi!

    sit on a secret = keep a secret?

    Could you please give me a few example about 'sit on' with this meaning?

    Thanks!

    Sit on this information until it is released to the media.

    (keep quiet about it; don't print or publish it)
