Troian Bellisario’s baby announcement is up there with our favourites of all time
Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams
Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario kept her pregnancy closely under wraps, but she’s finally announced her little one’s arrival. She and husband, Suits star Patrick J. Adams, announced the arrival of their daughter on Instagram. Troian wrote, “I cannot express how grateful I am. To the people who have protected us and kept our growing family safe and respected our privacy. To our tribe for expanding with grace and exponential amounts of love. To my @halfadams for being so supportive during every moment of my pregnancy and her birth. And to whatever incredible force of fate that brought this baby girl into our lives. I couldn’t be more proud to be her mother. To bring a new girl into this world and to do my best to raise her to be kind, strong and whatever the heck she wants to be”. Patrick followed suit, writing, “The world just got 8lbs heavier. Thank you to everyone who fought for and protected our privacy during this incredible and beautiful time in our lives. Everyone is happy and healthy and loving every moment of this. I could not be more excited to bring a baby girl into this world at this moment. We will raise her to be powerful, to always speak her mind and heart and to live without fear. It’s a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful.” These two sure know how to give a girl goosebumps! Congratulations.
Kirsten Dunst & Jesse Plemons
Kirsten Dunst just confirmed her pregnancy in the most glorious way. The pictures that yes, are just as jaw-dropping gorgeous as Beyoncé’s were revealed by brand Rodarte. As part of their Fall 2018 lookbook Kirsten appears wearing a floral cerise dress in a very dramatic scenario. This is The Beguiled actress’ first child with fiancé Jesse Plemons, the couple is reportedly tying the knot this spring in Austin, Texas.
Beyoncé & Jay-Z
When Beyoncé announced she was pregnant with TWINS, she dropped the bombshell on Instagram, captioning it: “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters”. It worked out pretty well, as she’s now got the most liked photo on Instagram, ever. Nice one, Bey. Now find out how she announced the news of her first pregnancy…

Doutzen Kroes & Sunnery James
Take note, expectant mothers: THIS is how a Victoria’s Secret model announces her pregnancy. “This is not a #throwbackthursday this is now. So happy to share with you that we are expecting,” the beauty wrote on Instagram.
Beyoncé & Jay-Z
For Beyoncé’s first pregnancy announcement – while pregnant with Blue Ivy – she had to do something big. Bey waited until a performance at the 2011 VMAs, where she unbuttoned her sparkly jacket and rubbed her baby belly, only for the crowd (including Jay-Z and Kanye West) to go absolutely wild at the news.
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Now this is going to be one good-looking child. Blake announced the news with a snap of her growing baby bump on her website, Preserve. She launched a feature called “Celebration of Family” on her website with a selection of pictures of expectant mothers, to which she added an extra picture… of herself. Aww!
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Kanye West announced the pregnancy of his then-girlfriend (and now wifey) Kim Kardashian live on stage during a concert in Atlantic City. He asked his “people” to stop the music, before donning a huge smile and telling the crowd to “make some noise for my baby mamma right here”. That beats our Facebook pregnancy posts, for sure!
Tamara Ecclestone & Jay Rutland
Tamara and Jay announced the birth of their baby Sophia with a suitably glam Instagram photo. We imagine that most people definitely don’t look this wonderful after popping a miniature human out of their body. Nevertheless, Tamara also included a suitably sweet caption: “Welcome to the world Sophia, our beautiful baby girl, born yesterday 6lb 9oz. Proudest day of our lives, never felt love like this. X” Aaw!
Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz
Alicia Keys announced she was pregnant with her second child by posting this gorgeous photo on her Instagram, and writing: “”Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz.

Here’s to many many more years of the best parts of life!” while Swizz wrote “Love is life & life is love and we’re so excited for another GIFT from up above Happy Anniversary my Goddess 4 years of greatness & cheers to 100 plus more inshallah.” Cute or what?

Lauren Silverman & Simon Cowell
Eric Cowell was born on Valentine’s Day, weighing 6lb 7oz. His proud Dad Simon shared several photos of the new arrival on Twitter, captioning this cute one: “I never knew how much love and pride I would feel.” He might seem tough on the outside, but he’s so soppy inside!
Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher
Carrie Underwood announced that she was pregnant with her first baby by using her pet pooches as props. Wearing slogan T-shirts, the dogs posed next to Carrie as she wrote: “In honor of “Labor” Day…Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier!” CUTE.

We’re all very happy,” she captioned the snap. Congrats, guys!
Kelly Rowland & Tim Witherspoon
Kelly Rowland announced her pregnancy with this inventive pic of a pair of baby trainers next to a pair of adult-sized trainers, with the caption “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy…”. She then let slip what the sex was during an interview with FOX411, saying: “We’re very excited. So far, everything has been good. I just feel like the baby is already rotten – like literally, my Caress family has gotten him all of his little bathing stuff, his toys – it’s just so cool.” Realising what she’d said, she then cried out: “It, it’s…aw, f**k it. It’s a boy. It’s a boy!” before turning to her publicist and asking her to phone Tim. “Can you please tell him that I spilled the beans?” she said, before telling her bump: “I’m sorry, baby.”
Dawn O’Porter & Chris O’Dowd

Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick
Kourtney Kardashian told Scott she was preggers during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, saying simply: “I’m pregnant!”. He didn’t exactly take it well. We’re not sure how cute this is, but it certainly wins points for being original.
Danielle Jonas & Kevin Jonas
Baby Alena was introduced to the world by her parents Kevin and Danielle via a controversial sponsored tweet. Washing detergent company Dreft had the honour of showing off #babyjonas, which trended worldwide. It may not work for everyone, but it worked for the Jonases.
Fergie & Josh Duhamel
Josh Duhamel revealed the sex of his baby with Fergie on live TV – that’s seriously cute and original. On LIVE with Kelly and Michael. In a segment of the show called “Du or Don’t” (geddit?), Kelly held up two onesies, one pink and one blue, and asked the actor to choose between them. After teasing the audience, he snatched the blue one – it’s a boy!
Meagan Camper & Pete Wentz

We’re big fans of this super-cute pregnancy announcement. Former Victoria’s Secret model Molly Sims posed with her two year-old son, Brooks for this gorgeous pic, and wrote on her personal blog: “I can’t even begin to explain just how excited we are for a new baby… We are so, so, so blessed as a family, and I’m speechless at the fact that we have the opportunity to bring a second bundle of joy into the world. As a new mom to Brooks, an entire world of motherhood opened to me along with 1,001 questions. I absolutely cannot wait to see what life will be like as a mother to a toddler and a newborn, and I really can’t wait to see Brooks as an older brother to baby number two!”

Ciara & Future
Ciara shared a cute photo of her new baby son, with the simple caption “FUTURE ZAHIR WILBURN 9lbs 10oz May 19 2014”. Of course, that made us even more desperate to see a pic of the little cutie’s face!
