I think not [In reply to] Can't Post

for two reasons: first, because the ring becomes the secret of Bilbo's success as a burglar, and second because the ring itself compels him to be secretive and keep it hidden.

We know from the books that Bilbo does not tell the truth about the ring until much later, by which time it is more of a confession than a story.
