It’s not only wedding and engagement season, it’s also baby season. In less than a week, Sarah Lahbati, Behati Prinsloo, and Isabelle Daza announced their pregnancies. All of their posts were cute and creative, which made us think of the other pregnancy announcements we’ve seen in the past. You have to admit, many of them were creative—either in the most subtle or extravagant way possible.
We’re rounding up our favorites and giving props to the celebrity moms who put all their effort to break the news. Let this also be your inspiration for your own pregnancy announcement.
Beyoncé is the queen of surprises. When she announced that she was pregnant with twins, she didn’t disappoint with how ethereal she looked among flowers and underwater. This is also her way of topping the first time she announced that she was pregnant with Blue Ivy.
Before posting on Instagram, Sarah revealed she was pregnant again on It Takes Gutz to Be a Gutierrez. She found out via ultrasound, which was shown to millions of viewers in the Philippines. That definitely took “gutz.”
Could you keep your baby bump a secret to a lot of people? We don’t know how that can be done, but Anne Hathaway did just that last year when she posted her pregnancy photo before the paparazzi. So if you haven’t gone out for a while and want to surprise your friends, try this.
Isabelle’s announcement, which involved three pairs of Stan Smiths, is subtle and you wouldn’t get that it’s about a baby if you don’t pay attention. Either way, it’s a cute execution. You can also use baby clothes and beanies for your baby.
